Hazelnuts belong to a group of foods commonly referred to as “tree nuts”. In recent years there has been rise in popularity of alternative plant based drinks derived from tree nuts such as hazelnuts. These drinks are a major source of concern for those consumers with tree nut allergies. With different types of alternative “milk” drinks being produced in the same facilities, there is the potential for cross contamination of ingredients. This can lead to the accidental inclusion of these ingredients which may not be declared on the ingredients list, putting the consumer at risk as well as increasing the potential for a recall.
The ELISA Systems Hazelnut Drink Protein Residue test kit utilizes a protein marker which is stable throughout the processing treatments used to produce hazelnut drinks. This makes the kit ideal as an indicator of hazelnut drink protein.
The ELISA Systems Hazelnut Drink Residue assay is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that has been specifically designed for the detection of hazelnut drink in other milk or liquid products. This assay is a rapid and reliable test that significantly reduces the time required to screen food and environmental samples for the presence of hazelnut drink residues.
