Food Sensitivity testing can be very useful to help prioritize an elimination or rotation diet. Usually removing foods that the body has produced antibodies to will alleviate symptoms, because the source of inflammation is removed. The ideal time course for elimination is not established. Consider magnitude of antibody response, ½ life of antibodies, patient’s current dietary intake, level of motivation, status of mucosal integrity, and remission and/or progression of symptoms.
Vibrant Additives is an array of 57 commonly consumed food additives, and which offers very specific antibody-to-antigen recognition. This panel measures an individual’s IgG and IgA sensitivity to food additives, which can aid in the differentiation of food additive sensitivity from food sensitivities.
