Reply To: Hi all – I am a startup business manufacturing healthy dry baking mixes. I’m wanting to get my products allergen tested for gluten, dairy and nuts (the ingredients are gluten free, dairy free, and nut free, and the suppliers and myself have strict food control processes in place, however my suppliers note that allergen free claims should not be made unless tests are done). What is the easiest and best way to get these tests done? I’m aware of several labs in NZ that can do it however the costs seem to be quite high. I’m wondering if there are any alternatives – e.g. buying a test kit where I can test the products myself on a regular basis.Any and all advice appreciated!!Thank you :)Shayna 

Hello Shayna. I checked with Michelle Sinclair, who is our Technical Director at Lewis Road and she kindly replied as follows ‘Hi Peter, A test kit like this would be perfect for them. There are other similar ones around too.

I’m happy to chat to them on phone if they want some extra info.

Cheers, Michelle

Hope that helps.
