ALCAT allergy and intolerance testing

Which foods to eat or not to eat? Our chosen food intolerance test answers that question

About

The chosen food intolerance test is the most accurate test for detecting food and chemical sensitivities. It is the only test to have been independently validated at Yale Medical School.

The company we use for our testing were voted 'North American Food Testing Company of the Year' – we've done the research so you don’t have to.

Treatment

When is this test useful?

The food sensitivity test does NOT measure true food allergy where symptoms start immediately after eating a food and are acute. This test measures food sensitivities which are often delayed, low grade, and chronic.

Someone with this type of sensitivity may not be awa­re that their chronic symptoms are caused by foods that they regularly eat or other substances that are frequently encountered.

Why do the test?

Uncovering inflammatory foods and other substances in your diet and avoiding them can help with:

  • Weight management
  • Health optimisation
  • Performance enhancement
  • Relief or elimination of inflammation-driven symptoms of acute or chronic disorders such as fatigue, brain fog, and muscle aches and pains

What can be tested?

More than 450 individual substances can be tested.

  • Nearly 250 foods are available
  • Special consideration is given to gluten and dairy sensitivities
  • 100 additives can guide you in understanding whether certain cosmetics, drugs, deter­gents, pesticides, and others should be avoided
  • 100 items (male/ female profiles), which are commonly found in supple­ments, tea or Eastern herbs
  • 20 items that are often encountered in foods, the home, garden, and nature
