Rapid soy allergen tests from Neogen® can screen samples at 5 – 10 ppm, or provide fully quantitative results in the range of 2.5 to 25 ppm in clean-in-place rinses, environmental samples, or food products, such as cookies, crackers, granola/power bars, ice cream, salad dressing, cereal, juice, and milk.
Food allergens are proteins in food that can create an immune response in sensitive individuals, and soy protein is a known food allergen. Once ingested, soy proteins can cause a number of reactions, ranging in severity from hives and itching to anaphylaxis. Testing for the presence of soy components ensures food manufacturers that an unlabeled—and potentially dangerous to some consumers—ingredient did not make its way into a food product.
Neogen’s Reveal® 3-D for Soy lateral flow tests for food allergens make it simple to screen for the presence of low levels of allergens in clean-in-place rinses and environmental swabs virtually anywhere. Sample preparation and testing take less than 10 minutes.
Neogen’s Veratox® for Soy test kits are quantitative tests that compare up to 19 samples at a time against test controls. Through the use of a microwell reader, the tests provide accurate sample results in parts per million (ppm).
