The Use of Visual Examination for Determining the Presence of Gluten-Containing Grains in Gluten Free Oats and Other Grains, Seeds, Beans, Pulses, and Legumes

December 19, 2017 from IFT and JAOAC

:

"The researchers concluded that the use of visual examination—either with the trained eye or properly calibrated optical sorting equipment—resolves many of the problems encountered with antibody-based testing methods, including sampling limitations and the uneven distribution of gluten in ground flours. In addition, they found that the two major processors of gluten-free oats were able to meet the new threshold using different processing methods."
