What is it?

FoodScreen screens your blood for the presence of IgG antibodies to certain food macromolecules (mostly proteins and glycoproteins).

The presence of IgG antibodies to food antigens is a definite indicator that these antigens have entered the organisms by crossing the natural barriers intact. The immune system views them as intruders and organises an attack which triggers the production of specific IgG isotypes. This molecular intrusion usually occurs in the intestines. The presence of IgG antibodies to food antigens therefore means, firstly, the non-digestion of the macromolecules associated with these antigens and, secondly, the existence of a compromised intestinal mucosa (Leaky Gut syndrome).

Although the pathological meaning of the presence of IgG antibodies to food has been and is still the subject of widespread debate, there is now convincing evidence to suggest, or even prove, the involvement of these IgG antibodies in a whole range of healthcare problems, including chronic inflammation of the intestines and its related complications such as allergies (including eczema), auto-immune diseases or chronic fatigue syndrome.
