Laboratory Gluten-Free Testing
At GFS Laboratories International, we offer standard testing using the ELISA Assay G12 Antibody. This test allows us to reach a quantitive 3ppm and a semi-quantitive .5 ppm, lowest in the world. We use this method for our own peace of mind, which results in our client retention.
The FDA and many other countries use 20 ppm as their maximum threshold requirement for "Gluten Free" claims. GFS Labs has the highest standard in the world. We believe none of our clients should come remotely close to 20ppm. When a product certifys at 3 ppm, our clients won't be subject to recalls, misrepresentation, or false claims. Ultimately, it's the liability that no one wants to incur, if for some reason their product fails to meet the minimum requirement of 20ppm. Most "certifiers" thought, they would cut the requirement in half as a way to combat the liability. But between false negative tests, cross contamination, inconsistencies in sourced ingredients and consumer sensitivities increasing, it puts the responsibility on the manufacturer to be 100% sure that what they claim is in fact the closest scientifically possible. At GFS Labs we are here to help our clients maintain the highest quality assuarance in the world.
