Do you experience hypersensitivity to certain foods? Food intolerance symptoms, in contrast to the immediate onset of allergic reactions, can emerge hours or even days later. This delay often complicates identifying the offending foods. GetTested’s Food Intolerance Test targets IgG4 antibodies and assesses your reaction to 40 varied foods commonly associated with hypersensitivity.

If you want to analyze both allergies and intolerances we recommend this test, but if you want more extensive food intolerance tests, we have also 80 items incl. gluten and 240 items.

Food intolerance test 40 items

Almond
Almond allergy is an allergic reaction to almonds, a type of tree nut. It is one of the more common tree nut allergies and can range from mild to severe, including potentially life-threatening reactions. Like other food allergies, an almond allergy is an immune system response to the proteins found in almonds.
Amaranth
Amaranth intolerance is a non-allergic adverse reaction to amaranth, a nutritious pseudocereal that is gluten-free and rich in vitamins and minerals. Unlike amaranth allergies, which involve an immune response to specific allergens, intolerance to amaranth typically relates to difficulties in digesting certain components of the grain.
Apple
Apple allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in apples. It's commonly associated with Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS), particularly in individuals who are also allergic to birch pollen, as the proteins in apples can cross-react with birch pollen. Reactions can range from mild to severe, although severe reactions are less common with apple allergies.
Banana
Banana intolerance refers to a non-allergic adverse reaction to bananas, a popular and nutritious fruit. Unlike banana allergies, which involve an immune response to specific allergens in bananas, intolerance to bananas typically relates to difficulties in digesting certain components of the fruit.
Beef
Beef intolerance, a lesser-known condition compared to common food intolerances, occurs when an individual's digestive system reacts adversely to consuming beef. This intolerance differs from a beef allergy, which involves the immune system and can be more severe.
Buckwheat
Buckwheat intolerance is a relatively rare condition where the body experiences difficulty digesting buckwheat, leading to various digestive symptoms. Unlike a buckwheat allergy, which involves an immune response and can cause severe reactions, intolerance is generally limited to gastrointestinal discomfort.
Cabbage
Cabbage intolerance refers to the body's difficulty in digesting cabbage, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort. This intolerance is distinct from a cabbage allergy, which is an immune response and can cause more severe reactions. Cabbage intolerance is typically associated with digestive symptoms following the consumption of cabbage.
Carrot
Carrot allergy is an allergic reaction to certain proteins found in carrots. It is relatively uncommon but can occur in individuals with sensitivities to certain plant-based foods. Carrot allergy is sometimes associated with Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS), especially in those who are allergic to birch or mugwort pollen, due to cross-reactivity of similar proteins.
Celery
Celery, a common ingredient in soups, salads, and snacks, can be a source of both allergy and intolerance for some individuals. While these conditions share similarities, they differ in their causes and how the body reacts. An allergy to celery is an immune system response to the proteins found in the vegetable, potentially leading to serious symptoms. Intolerance, however, usually affects the digestive system, leading to discomfort after consuming celery.
Chicken
Chicken intolerance is a condition where the body struggles to digest chicken, leading to digestive discomfort. This intolerance is different from a chicken allergy, which involves an immune response and can cause more severe and immediate reactions. People with chicken intolerance often experience gastrointestinal symptoms after eating chicken.
Cod
Cod allergy is an immune response to the proteins found in codfish, a common type of fish allergy. It's often seen in individuals who are allergic to other types of fish as well. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe and can occur upon ingestion or sometimes even from inhaling cooking vapors.
Corn
Corn intolerance is a digestive condition where the body has difficulty processing corn, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms. This intolerance differs significantly from a corn allergy, which is an immune system reaction and can be more severe and immediate in its effects.
Cow’s milk
Cow's milk can cause different reactions in individuals, leading to conditions like cow's milk intolerance, allergy, and lactose intolerance. Cow's milk intolerance involves difficulty in digesting milk proteins, often causing digestive discomfort. In contrast, a cow's milk allergy triggers an immune response, potentially leading to more severe symptoms. Lactose intolerance, another common condition, is due to the inability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. Each condition varies in symptoms and management.
Cucumber
Cucumber intolerance is a condition characterized by the body's difficulty in digesting cucumber, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort. This intolerance is distinct from a cucumber allergy, which involves an immune system response and can trigger more severe reactions. Cucumber intolerance typically results in digestive symptoms after consuming cucumbers.
Egg white
Egg white allergy is one of the most common food allergies, especially in children. It occurs when the immune system overreacts to proteins found in egg whites. While some children outgrow this allergy, others may carry it into adulthood. Reactions can range from mild to severe, including anaphylaxis.
Garlic
Garlic intolerance is a condition where the body struggles to digest garlic, leading to various digestive symptoms. Unlike a garlic allergy, which involves the immune system and can cause more severe reactions, garlic intolerance typically results in gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming garlic.
Goat’s milk
Goat's milk intolerance is a condition where individuals experience difficulty digesting goat's milk and its products, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms. This intolerance is distinct from a goat's milk allergy, which is an immune system reaction and can cause more severe reactions, including immediate symptoms.
Green beans
Green beans intolerance refers to a condition where the body faces difficulty in digesting green beans, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort. This intolerance is distinct from a green beans allergy, which involves an immune system response and can lead to more severe reactions. Typically, green beans intolerance manifests as digestive symptoms after their consumption.
Green Peas
Green peas intolerance is a condition characterized by the body's difficulty in digesting green peas, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort. This intolerance is distinct from a green peas allergy, which involves an immune system response and can cause more severe symptoms. People with green peas intolerance typically experience digestive symptoms following the consumption of green peas.
Hazelnut
Hazelnut allergy is a type of tree nut allergy characterized by an allergic reaction to proteins found in hazelnuts. It is one of the more common nut allergies and can range from mild to severe, including the risk of anaphylaxis. Like other food allergies, hazelnut allergy is an immune response and can be triggered by both raw and cooked hazelnuts.
Herring
Herring intolerance is a condition where individuals have difficulty digesting herring, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms.

    I had been struggling with vague digestive issues for a while, and friends kept suggesting that I might have a food intolerance. I took the plunge and ordered the Food Intolerance 40 Items test from GetTested. To be honest, I was sceptical at first. But when the results came in, I was genuinely surprised. The detailed breakdown pinpointed certain foods I would have never suspected. It wasn't just a list; they provided clear insights into what those intolerances meant for my overall health. I took the results to my dietitian, and together we devised a plan to phase out those problematic foods. Two months in, and the difference is undeniable. Those bloating issues? Mostly gone. That random fatigue after meals? Diminished. This test became a bridge for me to understand my body better, and it's unbelievable how much our daily food impacts our wellbeing. Highly grateful to GetTested for this. If you're considering it, do it. It's worth understanding what fuels you and what doesn't!!
