What are food intolerances?

There is a lot of confusion about the terms food intolerance and food allergy, and the differences between them. Many people think they have a food allergy when their symptoms can sometimes indicate food intolerance instead. Up to 45% of the population suffer from food intolerance* which, whilst not life threatening, can have a negative impact on many aspects of daily life

How do Lorisian food intolerance tests work?

The food intolerance test kit will be sent to you at home; a few drops of blood are taken using the simple finger prick blood collection wick system. The sample is then posted back to the Lorisian laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to a maximum of 150 food and drink ingredients.  Usually within ten days, you will receive clear colour coded test results and a support pack that explains your food and drink intolerances.  In a follow up appointment we will discuss recommended dietary changes in an elimination diet that optimises your health and wellbeing.

Lorisian are regulated by the MHRA and have been performing Laboratory tests for more than 30 years.  They are Europe’s leading provider of food intolerance testing.
