Food recalls due to undeclared allergens in food products, raw materials, dietary supplements, and nutraceuticals result in the loss of millions of dollars each year. Element’s network of experienced food allergen testing labs can help you to avoid costly and potentially damaging product recalls with our comprehensive food allergen testing services.

To protect the health and safety of those with food allergies, it is the responsibility of food manufacturers to ensure products undergo food allergen testing. Approximately 32 million people in the United States have food allergies, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Furthermore, approximately 2.6 million Canadians, 500,000 of whom are children, are currently living with food allergies, per Food Allergy Canada. Mitigate risk and continue to supply safe products with confidence when you partner with Element’s network of ISO 17025 certified food allergen testing labs.

With decades of experience delivering industry standard and specialized food allergen testing, our knowledgeable scientists confirm the presence or absence of allergens using the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) method. As your partner in food testing, we can quickly and accurately determine if allergens of concern are present at low levels with direct testing of food samples or environmental swabs. Our food allergen testing services support allergen monitoring programs, ingredient and finished product quality control programs, cleaning procedure verifications, and can also verify supplier claims regarding allergens.
