Our basic indicator test confirms whether you have a positive or negative IgG food reaction. Get a positive result? Choose either the in-depth YorkTest FoodScan Programme or the YorkTest Food&DrinkScan Programme.
The fast and affordable way of simply knowing
The YorkTest FirstStep Test quickly determines whether IgG antibody reactions to foods are detected or not. This test is ideal if you’re interested in one of our complete YorkTest Programmes but would like to know whether an IgG antibody food reaction is present in your blood first before deciding whether or not to go to the next step.
If positive the second stage involves expert analysis of IgG antibody reactions to either 113 or 158 food and drink ingredients, depending upon if you chose the FoodScan or the complete Food&DrinkScan test. It also includes two telephone consultations with a BANT* registered Nutritional Therapist. The additional charge to progress to the FoodScan Programme is £245, or £289 for the full Food&DrinkScan Programme.
The YorkTest FirstStep Test kit contains all you need to take a 2-3 drop blood sample. Simply return your sample in the pre-paid envelope provided (UK only) to our York laboratories for expert analysis. Your confidential results are then posted to you within ten working days.

Do NOT take this test if you are:
Olympian and world marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe told us that she started to suffer from symptoms that were so unbearable it was affecting her training.
She was recommended to use the FoodScan programme from YorkTest Laboratories by friends and fellow athletes.
Her test came back informing her she had IgG antibody reactions to egg, chicken, wheat, tomatoes and dairy.
After some time on her new diet Paula returned to YorkTest for a retest of her FoodScan. Her results came back as a surprise as she learned that she was reacting to blackcurrant, yeast, soya bean, gluten and chilli pepper. Paula was advised on how to best eliminate these foods from her diet without taking away their key health benefits.

I was shocked that I could be reacting to these foods as they are not the usual suspects, it made sense as I was drinking blackcurrant juice nearly every day, yeast and gluten was in virtually every meal and I included peppers in my food several times a week.

It's priceless to be able to get up in the morning and feel absolutely brilliant.
