Enva’s allergen testing provides peace of mind that “free-from” products fully meet all compliance requirements and standards. Utilising our ELISA-based testing systems alongside industry leading kits, Enva offer a range of quantitative testing for the presence of gluten, casein, β-lactoglobulin and egg in food products. These techniques are based on antigen-antibody interaction to specific allergenic proteins and allow direct detection of the allergen required across a wide variety of food matrices.

An expert team with experienced scientists delivering vital support to food manufacturers.

Gluten Free Testing

Enva use the R-Biopharm Ridascreen Gliadin test kit (AOAC-RI approved; Mendez extraction, R5 antibody), which is widely regarded as the best available formally validated ELISA for assessing final food product for gluten. This kit can quantifiably test to 5ppm in a range of matrices.

Milk Product Testing

Enva can test for the presence of both of the milk proteins, casein and β-lactoglobulin, to levels of <2.5ppm and <5ppm respectively. Though no specific legislation exists to cover claims such as “dairy free” or “milk free”, our expert staff are on hand to outline global industry guidelines.

Egg Testing

Proteins from egg white such as ovomucoid, ovalbumin, ovotransferrin, lysozyme and livetin represent a significant health hazard to allergic individuals. As with milk, no specific legislation exists to cover the claim “egg free” but Enva’s trained, knowledgeable and experienced staff can advise of the requirements to produce a safe and healthy final product.
