What is an IgG Food Sensitivity?
Your food intolerance* is actually something we can scientifically measure. A Type-1 IgE food allergy causes a nearly immediate allergic reaction, it’s what could be called a “classic” food allergy. A Type-3 IgG food allergy could be delayed up to three days, making it much harder to identify what caused the reaction. ImmuFood identifies what triggers these reactions in your blood so you can prepare your diet accordingly.

Still have questions?
Here are just a few of the things people ask us often, see our full FAQ page.
What is ImuPro and how reliable is the test?
ImuPro is the biggest food allergy test worldwide, based in 55 countries around the world. The company is based in Germany and their technology is the gold standard globally for food intolerance.
Immufood is using ImuPro technology and methods in the US out of our diagnostic lab at NC.
The test is performed using the ELISA method which is a well-established standard procedure in laboratory analysis. Our results are reliable and reproducible and are checked through regular quality controls in labs across different countries.
The test has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are considered for investigation and research purposes only.
What exactly is the difference between IgG and IgE?
IgG stands for “Immunoglobulin G.” Immunoglobulins are the antibodies used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses. Everybody has IgG antibodies in their blood but occasionally these antibodies can start to react against foods. This is what can cause food allergies or delayed-onset food allergies (food intolerance). IgE mediated allergies (type I) are completely different from IgG mediated allergies (type III). An IgE allergy is a traditional “true” allergy where symptoms occur immediately, rather than delayed in the case of IgG food allergies. IgG reactions increasingly occur in case of a disturbed intestinal flora, but decrease if the change in diet is kept to. IgE reactions occur occasionally and remain for your whole life. Type I food allergies must be considered in addition to the ImuPro results when changing your diet, since the food tested positively for IgE antibodies must always be avoided.
Is the test approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration?
No. Our food sensitivity testing is a developed test, and the performance characteristics of the test is determined by Immufood Inc. Because it has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, it is considered to be in stages used for research purposes.
The specific IgG measurements determined by this test set the basis foundation for an elimination diet that is planned and proactive. We do not claim that the IgG concentrations reflect the occurrence or the severances of serious clinical symptoms.
Do I get consultation after the test?
Yes, you are not alone – After the test you have free 3 weeks chat support with personal dietitians. You also get personal recipes made just for you on a monthly basis the whole year:)
What are the most common allergens?
This cannot be generalized. What’s good for one person may be problematic for another. Years of experience with ImuPro tests, however, have shown that milk and dairy products as well as varieties of cereals trigger immunological reactions in quite a number of people. Gluten, egg white, dairy products, and brewer’s/ baker’s yeast are very strong antigens which should be avoided if you suspect an allergy – which isn’t always easy as they are often hidden in innumerable industrially manufactured food products.
