Which food intolerance providers offer an introductory test?
At yorktest, we offer an introductory test called the FirstStep test. Ideal for people who are testing the waters and simply wondering if they have a general food intolerance without detailing an ingredient-specific breakdown.
It does what it says on the box: it’s the first stage of your journey, giving you a simple standalone positive/negative result if you are food sensitive. If you choose to upgrade onto a full programme, we simply deduct the cost of the FirstStep test, £24.99, so you pay even less for your full programme. Easy!
It’s easy to get caught out when you see a low-priced test which claims to analyse over 600 allergens. Please avoid these providers which test your hair strands. These are complete nonsense and will only result in bogus results. We’ve listed the providers to watch out for in this section (link).
For the people who know what they want and are determined to find out their ingredient-specific results, an introductory test may not be their thing, and they may think “what’s the point?”. But for those who would like to dip their toes, move at a slower pace, or mull things over before committing, then this is a beneficial option.
A credible food intolerance provider would offer this option to make better health accessible to both the hare and the tortoise, no matter how fast or slow you want to make your commitment.
