There is a growing public awareness of food intolerance. As more free-from products enter the market, it is becoming increasingly apparent that there is a movement of people looking to get a better understanding of how the food they eat affects their body. More and more people are taking an intolerance test to help them identify the foods they should avoid to experience better health. You can be intolerant to any type of food, but some seem to be particularly common. Here are a few.
Put as simply as possible; lactose is the sugar that is found in milk which is digested by the lactase enzyme. When you’re intolerant to lactose, your body is not producing enough lactase to break down lactose. So when you consume lactose, it stays in your system and is instead broken down by bacteria which then produce large amounts of gas which can lead to bloating and trapped wind. Other symptoms of lactose intolerance include flatulence, diarrhoea & stomach rumbling. The best way to diagnose lactose intolerance and begin your journey to improved health is by taking an intolerance test.
Humans have been eating wheat for at least 10,000 years, so what’s the problem? Well, average life expectancy 10,000 years ago would have had you done by your thirties.

Wheat & gluten-free foods are in every supermarket now; many have entire aisles dedicated to it. But what are the symptoms of wheat intolerance? If you have wheat intolerance, you can expect to experience fatigue, headaches and depression. Diagnose your wheat intolerance today with an intolerance test.
This will have caffiends quaking in their boots. Around 400 billion cups of coffee are consumed every year (and that’s just in our office) showing there are a lot of people with great dependence on caffeine for, at least, a short burst of energy. But how do you know if you’re intolerant to caffeine? Symptoms include jitters, feelings of anxiety, headaches & insomnia. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you should take an intolerance test to find out if caffeine is the culprit.
