Rapid test for sesame from Neogen® can provide fully quantitative results in the range of 6.25 to 100 ppm sesame in foods and environmental samples.
Food allergens are proteins in food that can create an immune response in sensitive individuals, and sesame protein is a known food allergen. Once ingested, sesame proteins can cause a number of reactions, ranging in severity from hives and itching to anaphylaxis. Testing for the presence of sesame components ensures food manufacturers that an unlabelled—and potentially dangerous to some consumers—ingredient does not make its way into a food product.
Neogen’s Reveal® 3-D for Sesame lateral flow tests for food allergens make it simple to screen for the presence of low levels of sesame in clean-in-place rinses and environmental swabs virtually anywhere. Sample preparation and testing take less than 10 minutes.
