Hormone Test Kits

Background on Food Hormone

Hormones are chemical information substances synthesized by highly differentiated endocrine cells and directly secreted into the blood. They affect the physiological activities of the human body by regulating the metabolic activities of various tissue cells. There are two main types of hormones in food: protein hormones and steroid hormones. Foods containing more high fat and high nutrients such as fried foods, high-fat meats, animal offal, etc. Nuts, fruits, beans, honey, etc., which contain more steroids, are hormonal foods. In addition, chickens, ducks, fish, pigs, etc. currently fed with certain feeds are all hormone foods. Food hormones can cause the body to gain weight, and in severe cases, it can lead to rapid growth of children and even precocious puberty. Recently, people have expressed concern about the contamination of various food hormones because they are potentially harmful and may endanger the stability of the ecosystem and the risks to human health.

Food hormone test kit is a common tool for detecting antibiotics in food, and it is also an important means to ensure food safety. Food hormone test kits can be divided into the following categories:

  • Detection of hormones remaining in ripened fruits: such as ethephon in fruits.
  • Detection of soybeans and other soy products containing phytoestrogens: such as soy isoflavones.
  • Detection of hormones in meat, especially in the internal organs of animals: such as birth control pills.
  • Detection of hormones in health products and nutritional products: such as hormones in bone meal.
