Navigating the complexities of food sensitivities  is a significant challenge for health professionals. Food Detective® emerges as a vital tool in this journey, offering a sophisticated, semi-quantitative   immunoassay for the detection of food-specific IgG antibodies. 

This innovative test is designed for convenience and ease, allowing it to be used directly in the clinic of a health professional without the need to send samples to a testing laboratory.


The Role of Food Detective® in Managing Food Sensitivity

Food Detective® is an ELISA-based test which can be carried out by a qualified healthcare practitioner in clinic. It identifies elevated IgG antibody levels to 59 commonly eaten foods. These antibodies can lead to a build-up of immune complexes in the body which provoke an inflammatory response and can manifest in a range of symptoms. 

The results of a Food Detective® test are then used to guide an elimination diet. By identifying foods that trigger an elevated IgG antibody response, it helps in pinpointing what foods might be provoking symptoms and should be eliminated for a short period of time. This approach is more efficient than the traditional trial-and-error method, providing a clear path towards identifying and managing food sensitivities.
