When people call asking for allergen testing, they are usually uncertain as to whether the ingredients they are using have allergens present. Each test determines if any known allergens are present. You will ship the product to us and we prepare your samples in a clean environment for testing.
You need to let us know which allergen for which you are testing for, as each test is a separate service. Here are the 9 most common food allergens.
We conduct a complete analysis to detect any trace of a specified allergen (per minimum reporting limits) in our FDA compliant lab. You will receive your results showing the presents or absence of the tested allergen.
Explanation of Results
If you have further questions regarding your results we can have you talk to one of our lead chemists or you can address any issues with our food scientists.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is food allergen testing necessary to confirm the presence or absence of allergens in my product?
Answer: If any of your ingredients contain allergens, you should assume that your final product will contain those some allergens. If you suspect the presence of allergens from another source, such as the manufacturing environment, you should have food allergen testing done on your final food product. This is especially true if you will be promoting the fact that your product does not have any of these allergens present.
Does the cost cover all the allergens I want to test for?
Answer: No. The food allergen test covers testing for one allergen. If you want to test for more allergens, the cost will added for each allergen. Discounts can be discussed for multiple allergen testing on one product.
