GlutenTox Tests Available in Canada
Based on increased demand, the popular GlutenTox line of gluten tests kits is available in Canada
for manufacturers of gluten-free foods, restaurants who serve gluten-free meals, and individuals
with celiac disease. GlutenTox tests detect even trace amounts of gluten from wheat, barley, rye, and
Toronto, Canada, April 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- To meet the rising demand for accurate, user-friendly
gluten detection methods within Canada, Emport LLC has partnered with Kettle Lakes Sales &
Marketing to bring GlutenTox Home, GlutenTox Pro, and GlutenTox Sticks to the Canadian market.
Although each GlutenTox test is slightly different, all the kits are simple, rapid test strips that detect even
low levels of gluten in foods and liquids. Accurate, sensitive and easy to use, GlutenTox delivers peace of
mind to individuals with celiac disease and manufacturers of gluten-free foods.
Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes intolerance to gluten and requires a strict gluten-free
diet, affects approximately 1 in every 133 Canadians - many of whom have not yet been diagnosed.
People with celiac disease cannot eat food that has had any contact with gluten whatsoever, which means
a diet free of wheat, rye, barley, and in many cases also oats.
Health Canada mandates that foods labeled as gluten-free contain fewer than 20ppm of gluten, in
accordance with Codex Alimentarius international standards. Manufacturers wishing to make a
gluten-free claim on their foods, beverages, or personal care products must develop HACCP plans that
address any points where contamination may occur; on-site gluten testing with kits like GlutenTox Pro
are a key part of many quality assurance plans. Since the kits can be adjusted to detect 5, 10, 20, or 40
ppm, manufacturers can be as specific and safe as they deem necessary. GlutenTox Pro is also able to
detect gluten on surfaces such as countertops, mixers, cutting boards, and oven trays.
GlutenTox Home is perfect for celiacs on the go, parents of children with celiac disease, and those trying
to identify the hidden source of gluten in their diets. Just as easy and sensitive as GlutenTox Pro,
GlutenTox Home comes in smaller quantities for less frequent use.
“Imagine a friend delights you with a homemade birthday cake, not knowing whether the cookware used
had contact with gluten before,” said Catherine Torgler, International Business Development Manager at
Biomedal, “You are uncertain about it so you use the kit to check a small piece of the cake, to find out
that the cake is completely gluten-free. You and other celiac friends can now safely enjoy it.”
The GlutenTox tests, although simple to use, are powerful tools that safeguard not only celiacs but the
businesses that feed them: hospitals, day care, schools, restaurants, etc. All GlutenTox test kits contain the
G12 antibody, specifically developed to recognize the toxic portion of gluten present in wheat, barley, rye
and oat that prompts the auto-immune response in celiac patients.
“Up until recently, it's been difficult for Canadians to access GlutenTox because of prohibitively
expensive shipping costs,” said Emily Kaufman, president of Emport LLC. “I'm delighted to be working
with Kettle Lakes to bring GlutenTox to the individuals who need it, as well as the restaurants with
gluten-free menus and manufacturers of gluten-free food who can use it to keep Canada's gluten-free
population healthy and safe.”
