What is an IgG Food Sensitivity test? Hours or days can pass between eating a reactive food and experiencing symptoms like upset stomach, headaches, fatigue or skin rashes. Therefore, IgG testing can help determine which foods might be responsible for these delayed symptoms.
OUR SECOND BRAIN is intestinal flora.
Intestinal flora fulfills multiple functions, and its bacteria are in constant communication with our body’s cells; to the point that our intestinal flora is said to be our second brain.
Bacteria play three important roles:
They are our digestive tract’s soldiers, preventing foreign substances (pathogens, toxins, allergens) from coming through, thereby lowering infection and illness risks;
They help digest food by processing it and producing new molecules (vitamins, enzymes, fatty acids, etc.);
They help develop the immune system and intestinal lining, ensuring better protection.
What happens when our intestinal flora is unbalanced?
When intestinal flora is unbalanced, the so-called “bad” bacteria take over, which can lead to illness, infections, digestive issues, fatigue, depression, etc.
FACTORS AFFECTING THE INTESTINAL FLORA
Every day, our intestinal flora is disrupted by our diet, stress, medications (especially antibiotics) and lifestyle.
INTERESTING FACT :
80% of the immune system’s cells are found in the intestinal tract, so it goes without saying that your immune system can be thrown out of whack when your intestinal flora is unbalanced.
As our intestinal flora can have influence on our health, it is important to keep it balanced.
How to keep your intestinal flora healthy?
One of the way to eat according to the result of Food Intolerance test.
Foods that have developed response with our immune systems are known as "antigens", or allergens.
Two types of antibodies commonly produced in response to foods are IgE (an immediate anaphylactic reaction, such as your classic peanut-style allergy), and IgG (delayed response allergy), which cause less recognizable food sensitivities. Both types of antibodies can be tested, each with indications for different concerns.
You will receive Food Intolerance test kit with instruction and send sample to the laboratory. The result will be ready in one week and you will receive it by email.

CanAlt IgG Food Intolerance Test.
CanAlt’s IgG food intolerance test is a valuable tool to take out the guesswork and help patients to a better quality of life. The test uses microarray based ELISA technology that measures IgG antibody levels to over 200 different foods. The panel includes the foods that are common to food intolerances, such as dairy, eggs, wheat, soybean, and nuts as well as foods that can lead to an insensitivity, but may not be suspected, such as cola nut, rice, sunflower and sesame seeds.
Strict control processes are in place to ensure the quality of the foods used for testing and there is no contamination. The food antigens are applied to a nitrocellulose pad for testing, then reagents are added through a series of steps that result in the development of a fluorescent colour that is proportionate to the amount of IgG antibodies present. Each food is tested in duplicate and each patient test is run with known standards and controls providing confidence in the accuracy of the results.
The report provides quantitative results that can be used to help design an elimination diet. Eliminate the foods with the highest results and start re-introducing the foods with the lower results first.
Allergy or Food Intolerance
It is very important to understand the differences between an allergy and an intolerance. A food allergy is an immune reaction that results in the production of IgE antibodies. The reactions are usually immediate and symptoms can range from rashes, swelling, violent sickness, difficulty breathing and anaphylactic shock.
Food intolerances that are immune related result in the production of IgG antibodies and symptoms are usually not as severe and may not appear for several days.
