A food intolerance response takes place in the gut, and it occurs when you are unable to properly breakdown the food. This could be due to enzyme deficiencies, sensitivity to food additives or reactions to naturally occurring chemicals in foods. Often people can eat small amounts of the food without causing problems.

The Food Intolerance Check assesses your response to 120 foods. Your blood is screened for antibodies to these foods using the scientifically validated ELISA method. The test we use is the latest in IgG screening termed amongst pathologists as FoodPrintTM.


This service also includes a consultation with one of our Clinical Nutritionists to discuss your results in the context of any health issues you may be experiencing. Our nutritionist will recommend dietary changes and supplements to optimise your recovery together with your recommended treatment plan. Your consultation can also be used to discuss ideas for healthy meal choices which suit your new prescribed diet.

Note that the Food Intolerance Check isn't intended for allergies which are specific immune responses which involve IgE antibodies and can cause severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis, skin rashes or rhinitis - refer to our Allergy Check for more information.
