Food Intolerance Test

Know Your
Food

You like the foods you eat. Sometimes, though, your foods don’t like you. It’s really your gastrointestinal (GI) tract that is responding with symptoms of food intolerance that can make you regret some of your food choices. Food intolerances are common, and our test helps you understand what's going on.

The complex way food affects our everyday lives is an emerging area, and identifying the culprit for unpleasant or unexplained symptoms, is often difficult.

Food intolerances refer to the difficulty in digesting certain foods. The food particles that enter the bloodstream without being properly digested are perceived by the immune system as foreign invaders and trigger significant adverse reactions. Although not life-threatening like food allergies, food intolerances should never be underestimated as their impact on sufferers can be significant and severely impacting the ability to live normal healthy lives.

Food intolerances may produce a variety of symptoms including, lethargy, bloating, stomach pain, weight control problems and headaches. The symptoms of food intolerances can be delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason, it is often difficult to identify what the problematic foods are. The compelling need to identify these food intolerances encouraged Brown's to offer a Food Intolerance Test that covers 57 of the most common food intolerances with just a finger-prick.

The test uses a modified Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) that detects antibodies to foods. A simple prick test will allow for a detailed assessment of any intolerances present.

Food intolerances and food allergies are different. Food intolerances involve the digestive system while food allergies involve the immune system.
