Food sensitivity is an adverse reaction to a food that involves an immune-inflammatory reaction. Food sensitivities may also be referred to as delayed food hypersensitivities or even “hidden food allergies.”Symptoms may be delayed and can occur hours or even days after exposure, making the primary “trigger” difficult to identify.

Why Food Sensitivity Testing?

Food sensitivity testing is recognizing an immune-inflammatory response and identifying which foods/compounds are actually causing that response.

Testing for food sensitivities has become increasingly popular and sometimes unreliable. This brings us to the question of which test is best for reliably identifying food sensitivity triggers?

Difference In Cell And Antibody Testing

Antibody testing measures IgG antibodies which can be found if you eat the food often.

Cell testing measures your white blood cells when it is exposed to that specific food.
