Emport's Best Practices Quality Control Solutions




There is no one-size-fits-all answer for gluten or allergen management; every facility carries different risks and will require a different approach. However, we’ve created several tools to help you on your way.

    • Best Practices Flow Chart
      If your facility is new to gluten-free manufacturing, you may have lots of questions about testing for gluten: what should you test? how often should you test? how many ppm of gluten should you test for? should you test surfaces, ingredients, and finished product for gluten contamination – or just one of those categories? Our Best Practices Flow Chart is our suggested method for using rapid tests to ensure safe, gluten-free products.
    • Best Sampling Practices
      Testing your incoming ingredients, your production line, and your finished products are the critical points for your control plan. But how do you collect a “good” sample? When and how often should you test your equipment? Our Best Practices Sampling chart features tips and suggestions for collecting testing samples to ensure safe, allergen- and gluten-free products.
    • Case Studies in Manufacturing
      What kinds of problems can on-site allergen tests help solve? In this series of case studies, we look into several manufacturers’ experience using rapid lateral flow tests to identify traces of gluten and allergen contamination in incoming ingredients and finished products, and also on working surfaces.
    • Polar Compounds in Fryer Oil
      Monitoring the composition of fryer oil for its polar content is a key step in producing a desirable, quality fried product. In the white paper Monitoring fryer oil for polar compounds we explain how polar compounds are created, why degraded oil is bad for business, and how to easily monitor your frying oil.

    • White paper: Get the most out of your allergen tests
      There are many variables to consider when bringing a new test into your quality control program. Even if a kit seems well-suited to your needs on paper, there is still one big way it can let you down: human error. Download to learn the top five most common ways human error can impact your test kits’ accuracy – and the ways to avoid these mistakes
      in your own QA practice.
