WHAT DO WE TEST FOR?
Not All Food Intolerance Tests Are Equal
If you’re currently looking for a food intolerance test you will have noticed that there are several testing kits available on the market. Before evaluating all the information out there it is important that you understand what the different tests are testing for.
What Is IgG?
IgG is a type of antibody (immune response) which can be formed when you react to foods. A simple blood test is used to measure food-specific IgG antibodies to identify foods to which a person may be sensitive.
This type of testing is now considered mainstream as many choose to use this approach as a starting point for an elimination diet.
