This premium Food Intolerance Test kit uses advanced testing technology to identify possible food intolerance of your body for 96 different food types. This is the perfect home collection test kit to figure out if those uncomfortable symptoms you or your loved one has are due to a particular food intolerance or not. Often people confuse Food Intolerance with Food Allergy. Food Intolerance is a physical reaction to a specific food or a food group. On the other hand, reactions to food allergy involve the body's immune system.

Various reliable testing methods for Food Allergy exist. It is a lot harder to test for Food intolerance since even the symptoms can be severe, it is the body's inability to produce enough enzymes or chemicals that cause the problem.

IgG based Food Sensitivity Screening Kit is a rapid, accurate, sensitive, cost-effective, easy-to-use screening kit that can be used at the convenience of your home to screen food products that may cause a specific type of immune response in your body. Explicitly, this kit tests for presence of specific serum antibodies against various food products which may lead to delayed-onset IgG-mediated type-III hypersensitive reactions.

Food Sensitivity Screening Kit employs highly sensitive ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) in which food antigens are immobilized on to the surface of 96-well microtitre plates. Only few drops of blood, taken by a simple "pin-prick" to the end of the finger, are required to perform our IgG ELISA based Food Sensitivity Screening Test. This saves time, money & physical discomfort by not having to have a blood draw. In a single run and at a very affordable price, you can screen 96 food products that may potentially lead to a delayed-type allergic response in your body.

On an average, results are sent out from the laboratory 2-4 weeks of the date a specimen is received for analysis.

Food Allergy vs. Food Intolerance
A common example of Food Allergy is "Peanuts" . When food is consumed body identifies the food as harmful and creates antibodies directed against the food. Food allergy can be life threatening. With a food allergy, symptoms may occur almost immediately or up to hours after consuming the particular food. Food allergy can affect the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system, respiratory system,, or the skin. Food allergy symptoms can also include skin rash or hives, swelling of the tongue and throat, breathing problems including asthma, vomiting or diarrhea, and abdominal pain and cramping. Severe allergic reactions may result in a drop in blood pressure, loss of consciousness, or even death.

There are no medications that can cure food allergies. Diligent avoidance of the offending food is the only sure way to prevent a reaction. People with food allergies must thoroughly examine food labels and ask questions about the ingredients of dishes. For example, the label on a breakfast cereal may read: "May contain soy, peanuts and/or other tree nuts." A common example of Food Intolerance is "Lactose Intolerance". Food intolerance symptoms can include gas, bloating, and abdominal pain when the food is consumed. Some type of food intolerance can be treated.

Some of the food allergy testing methods such as skin prick, RAST blood tests and patch testing etc., measure the reactivity of the components of immune system. However, food intolerances are a lot more subtle and harder to diagnose because the symptoms aren't caused by the immune system and they usually occur because of the body's inability to produce enough enzymes or chemicals to aid proper digestion.

  • Wash your hands and dry them properly.
  • Remove the cap of the lancet provided with the kit and press the lancet firmly pressed against the area to be pricked (finger tip or thumb). The end of the lancet is quickly depressed so to deploy the sterile device which will "prick" the finger or thumb.
  • The finger or thumb is massaged from the base and worked up to the area pricked. This forms a small droplet of blood which is collected for testing.
  • The fiber pad on the end of the small collection strip is placed against the blood drop which will immediately be absorbed into the pad. The pad must be completely colored from end-to-end.
  • After air drying, the soaked pad is then inserted into the provided transportation package and everything is then shipped to our facility.
  • SPECIAL NOTICE This is a pre-paid test, if you lose any portion of this test we are unable to replace it.
  • You are responsible for all shipping fees to send the sample to the laboratory.  We highly suggest using a traceable method to ensure the sample does not get lost.
  • This IgG ELISA analysis is a semi-quantitative assessment for specific total IgG antibodies and presence of such food-antigens specific IgG antibodies may not be clinically related with food allergies in a linear fashion. The symptoms to a food allergy or intolerance are often difficult to distinguish and professional diagnosis is needed in each case as symptoms are equivocal and overlap with some other medical conditions.
  • It is important to note that food allergy is only one of a number of possible reasons for food intolerance. Food intolerance can occur because of various reasons other than an inappropriate immune response like enzyme deficiencies and other metabolic defects, pharmacological effects, Non allergic histamine release and may also be idiopathic.
  • This food intolerance test does not identify anaphylactic or type-I hypersensitivity reactions.
  • This food intolerance test is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or replace the medical advice and/or treatment obtained from a qualified healthcare practitioner.

    Reviews by other users:

    "I was having a terrible time trying to figure out why I was so lethargic all the time and a friend told me about food intolerance. So I thought I’d give it a shot and test myself. I ordered the kit and it came in a pretty good amount of time. The test is easy to do (even though I don’t like the sight of my own blood) and the results came back quickly. I needed help interpreting the results but the staff at the lab phone support center were very helpful. "
    "A great kit if you can spare the money."
