Food Additive Testing
This test screens for an array of 57 commonly consumed food additives and offers very specific antibody-to-antigen recognition. This panel measures an individual’s IgG and IgA sensitivity to food additives, which can aid in the differentiation of food additive sensitivity from food sensitivities.
Food Additives testing can be very useful to help prioritize an elimination or rotation diet. Usually removing foods containing additives that the body has produced antibodies to will alleviate symptoms, because the source of inflammation is removed.
Symptoms that appear when consuming food with multiple ingredients can be due to a sensitivity to the food, or to the ingredients or additives in the food.
