More information on the Food&DrinkScan

This test will analyse your IgG antibody reactions to 208 food and drink ingredients. There are four different types of food-specific IgG antibodies. Unlike many of our competitors, we test the levels of all four of these to pinpoint the ingredients your body is reacting to. 

Please note that this test will NOT pick up on the following:

  • Food allergies (IgE antibodies)
  • Coeliac disease
  • Enzyme deficiencies, such as lactose intolerance
  • Histamine sensitivity
  • Chemical sensitivities

Once you’ve placed your order, we will send you a kit containing everything you need to supply us with a small blood sample. This involves a simple prick of the finger with a small, sterilised lancet, which you can carry out in the comfort of your own home. You then post this sample to our laboratory in the pre-paid envelope provided and we’ll do the rest!

The Food&DrinkScan Premium programme is our bestselling test and is ideal for those who are suffering with intolerance-related symptoms and would like to optimise their diet.

If you are experiencing symptoms of any kind, you should always consult with your doctor first before following a YorkTest programme.

Please note that we’re unable to provide this test to people who are:

  • Suffering from a blood borne disease such as Hepatitis or HIV
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Under the age of 2 years

We are proud to say that our laboratory has a >98% reproducibility rate. This means that, on average, two separate tests carried out with the same person’s sample (taken on the same day) will correlate with each other >98% of the time.

Our laboratory is regularly audited by independent authorities, staffed by fully trained and highly qualified scientists and uses the very latest equipment and procedures to ensure the utmost accuracy.

The laboratory team is overseen by our Scientific Director, Dr Gill Hart, who has been with us since 2005. Dr Hart is a leading UK biochemist and an expert in food intolerance who is passionate about scientific innovation. She has over 30 years of experience in the development and validation of diagnostic tests and testing services.

Your results

You will receive clear, color-coded results of your test within ten days. These will summarize the complete list of ingredients in three categories. If a food or drink appears in the green column, this means there is no reaction to that ingredient. Should it appear in the red or amber column, this means that a strong (red) or borderline (amber) IgG reaction has been detected.

Your results will arrive in a pack, which also contains a food and drink diary, a support booklet and a food intolerance ID card (ideal for showing your waiter when dining out). These resources will give you lots more useful information about food intolerance and nutrition in general and the diary is ideal for recording your progress as you begin to remove your “trigger foods” from your diet.

Nutritional support

The next step once you’ve received the results is an important one on your YorkTest journey. You need to call our team to make an appointment for your nutritional consultation. One 30-minute telephone consultation is included in the price of your programme and they provide invaluable advice from our nutritional professionals.

Our team of nutritional therapists are there to guide you on nutritious alternatives to your “trigger foods” and answer any queries you may have about the elimination diet.

The elimination diet

We recommend that you cut out your personal “trigger foods” for 12 weeks in total, in order to give yourself the best chance of experiencing the benefits of your elimination diet. In our 2017 customer survey, 4 out of 5 customers saw improvements in their health after following a YorkTest programme.

Here at YorkTest, we understand that changing your diet can be challenging. That’s why our friendly and knowledgeable UK-based Customer Care team are always there for you to offer additional support if required.
