What is a food sensitivity test?

A food sensitivity test will check how an individual’s immune system responds to different types of food. Food sensitivity is driven by the antibody immunoglobin G (IgG) and an allergic reaction is caused by the antibody immunoglobin E (IgE).


Food sensitivity tests help you discover the foods triggering adverse symptoms. Certain foods can cause bothersome symptoms in people with food sensitivities and even dangerous reactions in people with food allergies. But what many people don’t know is that food sensitivities can affect our health and our moods.

Symptoms of food sensitivities include:

  • bloating
  • stomach pain 
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • acid reflux or heartburn
  • rashes
  • migraines and headaches
  • runny nose or sinus congestion
  • fatigue

Testing for allergies and intolerances can be a helpful way to identify problematic foods. Once food sensitivities have been diagnosed, necessary steps are taken to help you reduce your symptoms.
