Most comprehensive range of soya test kits
Soy belongs to the so called big 8 allergens and is regulated in the EU, therefore it has to be labeled as a food ingredient, nearly worldwide. Already small amounts of soy proteins can induce allergic symptoms at a dose of more than 5 mg, so soy allergic patients have to strictly avoid soy-containing food. Therefore, analysis needs to be very sensitive. Especially processed food may contain soy proteins undetected by most common methods due to the lack of adequate antibodies and efficient extraction. With our sensitive and easy-to-use test kits, soy can be detected even in highly processed food. We offer qualitative and quantitative test kits for the reliable detection of soy.
Testing for soya
In order to avoid cross-contamination, start testing for soya on surfaces and in production lines for hygiene control purposes. Use a lateral flow test like the RIDA®QUICK Soya for swabbing surfaces. Bear in mind there might be also soya traces in the laboratory. So before testing for soya, check if your laboratory is clean.
The RIDA®QUICK Soya dipstick and the RIDASCREEN®FAST Soya ELISA assay use an antibody which is able to detect highly processed soy in food. They are the only test kits on the market able to detect these highly processed soya proteins.
You can find more detailed information in the brochure “Food safety: Detect soy especially in highly processed food” on the right.
Which soya test kit should I use?
Finally choose the appropriate soya test kit for your requirements. Use the ELISA test kit for analyzing all food products: raw materials and processed food. The rapid lateral flow test is for testing ingredients and raw materials as well as swabbing surfaces. The PCR is a DNA-based method that can be used for the detection of soy in processed food, for the verification of cross-contamination and for the confirmation of doubtful results.
