What is a “False negative”?

It is well known that many processed foods produce “False negative result” in commercial allergen test kits because of the insolubility of the target protein.

*False negative result: A result in which food samples actually contain food allergens but a test kit can not detect it

To solve this critical issue,

Morinaga developed a novel food allergen analysis method for unprocessed and processed foods by combining the special extraction solution and unique antibodies
