Innovative Testing Methods for Gluten in Foods for Celiac Disease Patients
A small startup in Virginia is the pioneer of on-the-go gluten testing for those that have celiac disease named Altede, formed by Ed and Anna Champion with the help of their business partner Brian Petruzzi. The trio hope to be the first to build and take to market small, inexpensive testing kits for those with celiac and also with food allergies.
The hope is for celiac patients to be able to test food at a table in just a few minutes while keeping to FDA standards for testing and being able to purchase these kits at an affordable cost. Even though everyone won’t test their food all the time, these kits will be most beneficial for people with severe gluten intolerance.
