Bio-Shield Cow fast is an a new innovating ELISA test for the qualitatively detection of cow’s milk in sheep’s or goat’s milk.
Higher priced milk with limited seasonal availability is commonly and fraudulently adulterated with milk with lower price from other species like cow. Adulterated milk either used in direct human consumption or in cheese manufacture (like feta which is Protected Designation of Origin, PDO) results in a final product inferior to that expected by the consumer. In addition, Cow’s milk allergy (CMA) is one of the most common food allergies. Milk can induce allergic reactions at infancy, this allergy is normally outgrown in the first year of life, however 15% of allergic children remain allergic, as a result cow milk must be declared as an ingredient on food labels.
In many cases, at the quality control of dairy products there is a need for quick scan of milk adulteration. This fast-Elisa kit can be used to detect the presence of cow’s milk, in sheep or goat milk.
