What is food intolerance?

Food intolerance

Food intolerance is difficulty digesting certain foods as well as having an unpleasant physical reaction to them. Besides, as individuals, our reactions to foods and drinks vary a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. The most common food intolerance symptoms are bloating and stomach pains. Those usually, come on a few hours after consuming the food.

How to find out if you are intolerant to foods?

At Lorisian, the experts like to refer to this as our personal ‘food fingerprint’. Discovering and understanding your own personal food and drink intolerances, as well as the effects they have on your health and wellbeing is important to ensure you make the best possible choices to balance your diet.

Simply return your sample in the pre-paid envelope provided (the UK only) to the laboratories. Expert laboratory technicians will then analyse this for reactions to 208 food and drinks.
