As individuals, our reaction to food varies a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. At YorkTest, we like to refer to this as our personal ‘food fingerprint’.

Discovering and understanding your own personal dietary intolerances and the effects they have on your health and wellbeing is important to ensuring you make the best possible food choices to balance your diet.

About the FoodScan Programme

The YorkTest FoodScan programme analyses your IgG reaction to 113 food ingredients to provide you with nutritional advice and support to optimise and balance your diet. View the full list of foods:

If you are interested in discovering whether you have reactions to drink ingredients too, why not try our comprehensive Food&DrinkScan programme

91% of our customers would recommend the YorkTest FoodScan Programme.

Why? We believe it is because in one survey of 5286 people 3 out of 4 of them told us they felt better after acting on their results with our support and guidance.* 

Please note: if you are concerned about any symptoms you are experiencing, you should always visit your GP to rule out any serious underlying medical condition.

What to Expect from the FoodScan Programme

The YorkTest FoodScan kit contains all you need to take a small blood sample (2 – 3 drops) in the comfort of your own home. Simply return your sample in the pre-paid envelope provided (UK only) to our York laboratories for expert analysis.

Your confidential results and additional support material will be posted to you within 10 days.

When you have received your results and are ready, you can contact us to book your appointment with one of our BANT** registered Nutritional Therapists. This half hour session will provide you with support and knowledge to assist you in your new diet, ensuring you are confident about the changes you can make to improve your health and wellbeing.

Raised levels of food-specific IgG antibodies within your blood indicate that an IgG antibody reaction to a particular food or foods has occurred.  If you have already taken the decision to eliminate a particular food or foods from your diet they may not show up a reaction on your results.  If you know of foods that cause you to feel unwell, do not start eating them; we do not encourage you to eat a food or foods which you already know are a problem to you.

FoodScan does not provide information about coeliac disease, enzyme deficiencies such as lactose and alcohol intolerance, IgE-mediated allergies, histamine sensitivity or other chemical sensitivities such as reactions to sulphites, tannins or tyramine.  FoodScan is only recommended for people who have food  intolerance symptoms.

Io have suffered from self diagnosed IBS for most of my adult life, feeling bloated a lot of the time tired and lethargic. In the last 12 years I have also had had bouts of diarrhoea, which have been investigated by my GP and subsequent hospital visits for further investigations with cameras and biopsies. There is bowel cancer in my immediate family and it's always a relief to rule out anything sinister. A year ago I had a very long and debilitating episode that meant I couldn't move from from the toilet and left me with no energy at all for days on end. I was unable to take my dogs for a walk or go anywhere without knowing ther were toilets close by. To say I was having to go to the toilet 30 times on bad days is not an exaggeration. Again I was referred to the hospital and the examinations and tests all came back negative I was really beginning to worry what could be the cause and I did some internet research I had often wondered if it could be diet related and kept food diaries but nothing seemed to trigger the attacks. When looking at food intolerance and allergies I came across the Yorktest site and read the reviews. Feeling I needed to do something even it was to eliminate food intolerances I ordered the first test kit. At £10 it was cheap enough to do. My kit arrived with really clear instructions and I undertook the test and sent it off straight away. I was kept up to date by email about the status of my order and results, it came back showing that there were signs of food intolerance I guess I was sceptical and thought well they would say that to get you to undertake a full testing but I decided to go ahead and have the full test done. I didn't need to provide any more samples and I paid a small amount extra to have the results back in a couple of days. The results came back and again the communication with staff at Yorktests was excellent everything was emailed and I spoke to someone on the phone who outlined the results and encouraged me to ring when my results pack arrived and book a telephone appointment with the nutrionalist. I was diagnosed with an intolerance to milk and cashew nuts, and borderline intolerance to yeast, gluten, soya and others. I had my conversation with the nutrionalist which was probably one of the best 30 mins I've spent in a long time, she was excellent in explaining how to deal with the results and a way to move forward. I can say that two months down the road my attacks have all but stopped, I feel healthier because I'm less tired and I can now walk the dogs. The service and support I have had from Yorktests has been excellent and would say to anyone with IBS or unresolved issues like I had to consider the tests. I am nearly 60 and for almost all my adult life lived with IBS and I'm hoping that I can now manage it sobmuch better by changing my diet, thanks to the test results and advice given. Thank you. I
