Food allergies and food intolerances are similar in many ways, but they are not the same thing.  Food allergies prompt responses from the immune system that can be severe and dangerous. Allergies are easier to recognize due to the suddenness of the reactions, even with just a small amount of food.

Food intolerances (sometimes called food sensitivities) don’t provoke an immune system reaction, and they tend to develop gradually or only after frequent or large amounts of the food item are eaten. The symptoms and health problems food intolerances produce vary widely and can be easily mistaken for other conditions, making them difficult to identify and diagnose.

A simple blood test is available to measure the reaction of body’s IgG antibodies to nearly 200 common food items known to cause food sensitivities. Test results are available within 5-7 days.


The blood test method is among the fastest and most accurate methods for identifying specific food intolerances or sensitivities. While traditional skin-prick tests measure a person’s reaction to one food item at a time, blood testing checks reactions to over 200 food items with a single blood draw.
