Wheat starch is processed to “remove” gluten from the wheat. As part of this process, the gluten is hydrolyzed, which breaks down the protein making it too small for Nima’s antibodies to detect. However, some gluten may remain intact even after this process. Nima can test for the intact gluten when it is present at 20 parts per million or more in the sample.
