When you have an intolerance to a food, an IgG antibody is produced. These antibodies can be responsible for many of the symptoms associated with a food intolerance, but as symptoms are not always immediate it can be difficult to identify which food or foods may be causing a problem.
You can go straight ahead with a full comprehensive test for food intolerance or you can take a £15 Indicator Test.
If you get a positive result with your indicator test you can then upgrade to the 40, 120 or 200+ panel.
We will send you a discount code in your test confirmation and your results email. Please use this code when upgrading to any full panel and the £15 cost of the indicator test price will be removed.
If you choose to go straight ahead without first completing an indicator test there are a variety of different tests to choose from. 540, 120 and 200+ foods. Each test checks for different foods at a range of different costs, all designed so you can be sure to get the right test for you.

*Gliadin: A glycoprotein (a carbohydrate plus a protein) within gluten. Gliadin is found in wheat and some other grains, including oats, rye and barley. People with coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease and other conditions may be sensitive to gliadin in the diet. In these conditions, antibodies to gliadin can often be detected in the blood.
A finger prick blood sample.
A food intolerance test is not recommended during pregnancy as the immune system is suppressed which can cause false negative results. Please wait 4-6 weeks after giving birth.
Please avoid the use of immunosuppressant medication if possible when performing these tests, as they may have an impact on the results.
DO NOT stop any medications without your doctor’s consent.
Dietary guidelines before doing your test
We recommend that you follow your normal diet before doing the food intolerance test so that the test reflects what you usually eat.
If you have avoided a food for more than three months that you would like to test, you would need to reintroduce this food for 1 week by eating a normal portion of that food at least once daily before taking your blood sample.
2 years and above.
We recommend returning your samples by a next day service. Samples to arrive Monday – Thursday only.
Please allow 10 working days (results are often completed sooner than this).
Your test results will be emailed to you.
