What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance can result from your body reacting badly to certain foods. Often the foods we include regularly in our diet or the foods we crave may be the ones causing us a problem. Research has shown that food intolerances can be linked to IgG antibodies produced when these ‘problem foods’ are eaten. Normally these antibodies do not have any ill-effects, but if the immune or digestive system are not working optimally, their presence may cause a wide range of symptoms.
How do I know if I have a food intolerance?
Food intolerances can cause many unpleasant symptoms, including but not limited to:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Stomach cramps/abdominal pain
- Joint aches and pains
What can I do about it?
Talk to Adele about doing a Food Detective test. Many people experience an improvement in symptoms and health after changing their diet based on their Food Detective results. Like any diagnostic test, Food Detective will only produce meaningful results if you are experiencing symptoms. Some symptoms of food intolerance could be due to other health issues and it is important to see your doctor to rule these out.
Why should I do a test?

Symptoms can persist for several days or longer, making it difficult to identify which foods your body is struggling to deal with.
