Food Intolerance Testing

The Test

Food Detective measures IgG antibodies which may be linked to inflammatory conditions in the body, manifesting in a range of health issues. The reaction tray is spotted with food protein extracts.

A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.

In subsequent steps the use of detector and developer solutions identifies the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray. Reference to the food layout plan allows the foods causing antibody production to be identified. Once identified, the trigger foods may be eliminated from your diet.
