Food intolerance test Analyses your reactivity to over 200 food and drink ingredients. Food intolerance can occur when the body has difficulty digesting certain foods.

When this occurs over time, large food particles (proteins) may enter the blood stream and this can cause inflammation.

When foods and drinks are digested, the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body.  Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and sometimes the body reacts by attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin G’s (IgG).

A food-specific IgG reaction should not be confused with food allergies, nor other types of food intolerances, which Lorisian do not test for.  These include:

  • Enzyme deficiencies e.g. lactose (milk sugar) intolerance
  • Coeliac disease; requiring lifelong avoidance of gluten
  • Chemical sensitivities e.g. histamine, tyramine, sulphites etc

Food intolerance can cause a wide range of disruptive symptoms such as digestive problems, eczema, migraines and headaches, fatigue, depression and low mood, joint pains and sinusitis.

This test examines IgG antibody reactions to 150 food ingredients.  The test is simple to take and can be done at home. All that is required is a small blood sample, which involves a simple prick of the finger with a small, sterilised lancet. Each kit comes with a step-by-step leaflet to guide you through the process.

The Food Allergy Kit tests your allergy (IgE) reactions to 23 different food allergies and 19 different environmental allergens.

Simply take a quick finger-prick blood sample and return it to our laboratory in the post. You’ll receive your allergen test results within 7 days! No social interaction required.
