Using Nima to test mustard for gluten contamination

Testing Oat Products Using the Nima

Please watch the video Using Nima to test heterogeneous samples such as oats before watching this video. It is available at https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/news/using-nima-test-heterogeneous-samples-oats/.

My intention in testing these two […]

FNCE Presentation: Testing Food for Hydrolyzed Gluten & Why This is So Difficult

In October of 2016 I had the pleasure of presenting at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo. I presented alongside Carol D’Lima of the FDA.

Please watch the video after downloading the slides (available at testingfoodforhydrolyzedgluten).
