The Detox Project, partnered with some NGOs, have been looking for 3 years to find the best way to test for glyphosate in foods and urine. Here are some bullet points about why and how to test for glyphosphate:
- Agencies should be testing for glyphosate in food.
- ELISA testing is not reliable. Don't use it.
- Minimum limits of detection of should be 0.5 parts per billion (PPB) or lower for urine and water and under 20 PPB for food samples.
- Validated or Verified LC/MS/MS (Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry) testing methods are the most responsible methods.
- Some LC/MS/MS methods used by the food industry are inaccurate.
