Important Information

Do NOT take this test if you are:

  • Suffering from a blood borne disease such as Hepatitis or HIV
  • Under 2 years old
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
N.B. 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 as a reaction on your results. If you know of foods that trigger your symptoms then do not start eating them; we cannot encourage you to eat a food or foods which you already know are a problem to you.

Please note: 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. YorkTest’s food intolerance programmes are only recommended for people who have food and drink intolerance symptoms.

Customer Testimonials

The test was easy and so painless that I didn't realise I'd done it!
I tested positive for intolerance to four quite basic foods a month ago and after my first nutritionist consultation, I cut them out of my diet completely. It's not been as difficult as I imagined and I have felt improvements already. The test was easy and so painless that I didn't realise I'd done it!
