Intended use

RIDASCREEN®FAST Mustard is a sandwich enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of mustard in ketchup, sausage and cream cheese.

General Information

People allergic to mustard will react to any ingredient of black, Indian brown or yellow / white mustard. Even small traces of allergens in food can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Mustard is used as a condiment in meat, to prepare pastes or as an ingredient for a large variety of sauces, soups, salad dressings, and marinades. Thus, it is frequently encountered in food as a hidden allergen. Food manufacturers have to check for crosscontamination. The allergen can be present as an ingredient or as a contamination in raw and cooked products. According to the regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011, mustard and products thereof must be declared on food labels.


  • One of the most sensitive musard ELISAs on the market.
  • Widespread testing for cross reactivity (81 matrices have been evaluated).
