The IgG Food Print 160+ Vegetarian Food Sensitivity Panel is analysed from a simple blood test which can be collected at an Australian Clinical Labs collection centre. The Food Print 160+ Vegetarian is a specialised food intolerance tests that looks specifically at Vegetarian foods. Food Print 160+ Vegetarian measures IgG antibodies which are linked to food intolerances. IgG is an antibody that is only meant to be created to fight immune threats to the body. Unfortunately due to high stress lifestyles, poor diets, gut issues and a host of other causes, the body can start to attack foods instead of pathogens. This is when we can start to see food intolerances. Food intolerances can manifest in a range of health issues such as digestive problems, skin problems and immunity problems to name a few. By conducting an IgG Food Print Intolerance Test we can determine which foods the immune system is intolerant to and which foods that are safe to consume without an immune reaction.
