Today I’m going to be testing the organics brand chicken broth for gluten. I will be using a glutentox home test kit to perform this test.
So yesterday, I was at the grocery store. I needed to pick up some chicken broth and they were out of the Pacific Brand, which is the one I usually purchase. It says gluten-free right on the label. And my second best option was the Organic’s brand chicken broth. There was nothing suspicious on the label to make me thing there might be gluten in there. I even called up the representative at Safeway, the company that makes the chicken broth. Sure enough, she was able to reassure me that there’s no gluten ingredients, but she was unable to tell me whether or not the chicken broth was made on a shared line that also processes or makes chicken broth that might contain gluten or anything else that might contain gluten.
So she told me that she’d call me back in a few days, but I don’t have time for that, so I’m going to test it myself and see whether or not if there’s any detectable gluten. Obviously, there’s no gluten on the label, nothing suspicious, but I’m just curious to see what the likelihood of cross-contamination might be.
So I’m going to be using the GlutenTox Home Test Kit. I hope you can see it here. Basically we’re going to be looking at this little window right here and waiting for a pink line to appear. So if a pink line appears, that means the test is positive and there is detectable gluten. I’m going to be testing at five parts per million, which I know is less than the gluten-free. If it’s positive at five parts per million, I’m testing it at twenty parts per million just to see if there’s any detectable gluten within that range.
So the test will take about 20 minutes, but I’m going to speed it up, so it only takes about one minute. And again, the pink line will appear within ten minutes. If you don’t see it, it’s negative.
If you would like for me to perform more tests like these, if you like this kind of video, if you’re curious about other ingredients or products, let me know in the comment section and I might test that product in the future.
Please let me know why you want for me to test that product. It maybe had you eating in the past and gotten sick or maybe it’s something that you’re afraid to eat that you want to reintroduce in your diet. I’m just curious. Let me know. And I will see you next time. My name is Andrew for GFMagazine.com.
Okay, so what you see in front of you now is me performing the test of the Organic’s chicken broth. The whole test takes about 20 minutes, but thanks to hyperspeed, it’s only going to be about 45 seconds. What we’re looking for here, the key thing is to see if there’s going to be a pink line that appears on the test strip.
And the test strip will appear right now. So now we’re looking at the little window there. We’re looking for a pink line. The blue line just signifies that the test is valid.
So if there’s no pink line within ten minutes, it means that there’s no detectable gluten. So we’re coming up on about ten minutes now. The pink line should have already appeared. I don’t see it. So this chicken broth is gluten-free.
If you’d like for me to test other stuff, let me know in the comment section.
