Eliminate your dietary discomforts and underlying allergies with our simple and effective test. We measure the body's immune response to a wide collection of foods and your body's effectiveness in managing insensitivities and intolerances. Your results will be reviewed and collated by our nutrition and medical specialists so that you can make better decisions when taking on food.
Lactose is a sugar found in milk and dairy products. It is broken down in the body by an enzyme called lactase, which is necessary in order for lactose to be properly digested and absorbed. Lactose intolerance is caused by a shortage of lactase enzymes, which causes an inability to digest lactose and results in digestive symptoms.
Gluten is the general name given to proteins found in wheat, barley, rye and triticale. Several conditions relate to gluten, including celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy.
Caffeine is a chemical that is found in a wide variety of beverages, including coffee, soda, tea and energy drinks. It’s a stimulant, meaning it reduces fatigue and increases alertness when consumed. Most adults can safely consume up to 400 mg of caffeine a day without any side effects. However, some people are more sensitive to caffeine and experience reactions even after consuming a small amount.
Fructose is a simple sugar found in fruits and vegetables, as well as sweeteners like honey, agave and high-fructose corn syrup. In people with fructose intolerance, fructose isn’t efficiently absorbed into the blood. Instead, the malabsorbed fructose travels to the large intestine, where it is fermented by gut bacteria, causing digestive distress.

The Food Intolerance test is not an allergy test. It is important to remember that food allergies and food intolerances are very different. Allergies are mediated by IgE antibodies and intolerances are mediated by IgG.
The testing methods for allergies is very different from sensitivities. An allergy test can be done by either a blood or scratch test. Food sensitivity testing is performed by exposing your blood to different foods. If you have a known allergy, you should follow your doctor's recommendations in managing that allergy, regardless of your food sensitivity results.
It is not necessary to fast before taking a sample for your test. It is also not necessary to adjust your diet in any way prior to your test. This food sensitivity test involves taking your blood and exposing it to various foods to assess for an immune reaction generating certain types of antibodies, so the test should not be disruptive at all to your day.
The antibodies being tested are called IgG. As long as you have eaten a certain food within the past 4 weeks, the test should be able to detect those IgG levels. If someone has removed a food from their diet for long periods of time, they may or may not still have IgG reactivity detected. In general, your body will clear specific IgG antibodies not being triggered by certain foods 18 to 24 months after last exposure; however, people have been known to clear IgG both sooner and longer than those time intervals.
