Why Choose YorkTest

Ever had a gut instinct you’re intolerant to a food or drink ingredient? Maybe your gut is trying to tell you something.

Taking a YorkTest food intolerance testing programme offers a fast-track solution to identifying your food triggers. Perhaps cow’s milk is bloating your stomach, or coffee is giving you a migraine. Maybe an unsuspecting food ingredient like chilli, lentils or bell peppers are causing you digestive distress. 

We have won many accolades over the years for the outstanding service that we offer to our customers. We’re proud of the difference we have made to people’s health and the research we have carried out along the way. That’s why we have been chosen by over 50% of the UK market.
