50 FOOD SENSITIVITY AND INTOLERANCE TEST
Symptoms may be difficult to link to specific foods, environmental substances or food additives because they may not occur until hours or days later. To complicate the situation, each individual has a different tolerance for specific foods, so even if a person has an intolerance, it may be mild so that a small amount of the food doesn’t cause a reaction until enough of the food is eaten or is consumed consistently over time.
The ALCAT 50 Food Sensitivity and Intolerance Panel is a simple blood test that measures the body’s cellular reactivity to 50 highly reactive foods including Apple, Baker’s Yeast, Banana, Barley, Beef, Black Pepper, Broccoli, Butternut Squash, Cabbage, Cane Sugar, Cantaloupe, Carrot, Casein, Cauliflower, Chicken, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Corn, Cottonseed, Cow’s Milk, Egg White, Egg Yolk, Fructose, Garlic, Gluten/Gliadin, Grape, Green Pea, Iceberg Lettuce, Lamb, Lemon, Mustard, Oat, Onion, Orange Peanut, Pear, Pork, Rice (Brown/White), Shrimp, Soybean, Strawberry, String Bean, Sweet Potato, Tomato, Tuna, Turkey, Vanilla, Wheat, White Potato, and Yellow Squash.
