Food Intolerance Test

Food Intolerance + Food Allergies

Food Allergy

A Food allergy is quite rare, affecting about 2% of the adult population.
It can vary from mild to severe and can affect one or more systems in the body, such as the digestive system, respiratory system or the skin. In extreme cases, the immune system triggers a response throughout the whole body, resulting in a systemic reaction (anaphylaxis), which is potentially fatal.

Food Intolerance

Unlike allergies, a food intolerance usually involves a delayed biological reaction, which although uncomfortable and unpleasant, is not life threatening. A Food intolerance is much more common than a food allergy and affects more than half of the world population.

Food Intolerance Symptoms

Sometimes—even without you being aware of it—a food intolerance lies behind many common health concerns . Trouble digesting a particular food initiates a cascade of problems, which tend to be chronic, painful, and harmful to your long-term health.

If your body can’t digest a food, whenever you eat that food, enzymes aren’t able to break it down properly. The proteins then enter your bloodstream via your intestines. This in turn causes an inflammatory response, which can manifest in specific symptoms.

For example, let’s say you have developed a food intolerance to parsley. What that means is whenever you eat parsley, or a processed food which contains parsley, the inflammatory response causes negative side effects. Some of the most common consequences to eating a food you shouldn’t are:

  • Weight gain
  • Feeling tired
  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Bloating
  • Skin problems
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Intestinal problems

The good news about food intolerance is that once it is properly identified—and you stop eating that food—your symptoms will start disappearing, sometimes overnight. It’s that simple.

Weight Gain or Obesity

Research has shown that people who have low serotonin production do not feel full even after eating a heavy meal. Furthermore, they suffer from depression at a much higher rate than healthy people whose serotonin production is not inhibited.

What does this serotonin insufficiency have to do with food intolerance? Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) is a brain neurotransmitter that can act like a hormone. Serotonin has well-studied effects on mood, and most antidepressants work by trying to make it more bio-available.

But did you know that the brain only synthesizes and hosts five percent of the body’s supply of this key chemical? The small intestine produces the vast majority of serotonin or ninety-five percent. But a digestive system under attack by inflammation, caused by food intolerance, can’t keep up with the body’s serotonin needs .

Therefore, low serotonin levels cause hunger, depression, and overeating, which in turn results in weight gain.

Tiredness or Fatigue

If you’ve felt tired for years, you may even have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). You don’t feel well-rested even after a good night’s sleep. You find it difficult to get through your daily routine. Some sufferers find they are not able to work at all. According to scientific studies, CFS is caused by food intolerance and unresolved infections in the body. Pinnertest can pinpoint which foods are causing gut inflammation, leading to exhaustion.

Brain Fog

When you have brain fog, you can feel like you’re living in a cloud that limits your mental clarity. You have trouble learning new things, paying attention, and following instructions. People with this condition are often forgetful and report feeling detached from friends and family. They are also frequently discouraged and depressed.

Brain fog is common, and it affects both adults and children. As you can imagine, brain fog may contribute to employment problems and difficulties learning in school. It can lead to unhappy relationships, lower self-esteem , and cause frustration. When you have brain fog, you have difficulty functioning successfully in your daily life.

Research has proven that eliminating certain foods can help reduce your brain fog symptoms. Some foods—to which you are intolerant—produce a drug-like effect on the central nervous system and lead to brain fog. Food reactions can also trigger irritability and confusion.

Living with cognitive dysfunction can make you lose self-confidence and lower your self-esteem. The worst part of living this way can be the stress and depression that affects your daily life. If you have the right tools, it’ s much easier to cope and live with this condition.


As we’ve discussed, serotonin production can be decreased because of the inflammation that comes from food intolerance. Decreased serotonin secretion is one known cause of migraine attacks. Pinnertest can detect the key foods that are causing your headaches so that you can avoid them in the future.

Skin problems

Food intolerance also impacts common skin conditions like eczema and acne.

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a skin rash characterized by itchiness, redness, and scaliness. It may be accompanied by oozing blisters surrounded by red or discolored areas from frequent scratching. It most commonly appears on the knees, elbows, cheeks, and the extremities, though it can be seen on other parts of the body as well. Scientific studies show that certain foods can cause or worsen eczema, so knowing which foods to steer clear of is crucial.

Acne sufferers used to be told to avoid greasy foods, especially chocolate. If you have a food intolerance to chocolate, this isn’t bad advice. But acne, like eczema, isn’t a one-size-fits-all concern. You need to know what your food triggers are because when you eat those foods, your body fills with histamines, prostaglandins, and other immune system chemicals. These chemicals have extremely irritating effects that cause inflammation in your gut. It is this inflammation that can cause acne problems.

Pinnertest can detect which foods are causing eczema and acne so that you can rid them from your diet.

Intestinal Problems

Medical studies show that the inflammation in the gastrointestinal system causes digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), bloating, diarrhea, and constipation.

Pinnertest can detect the exact foods that are causing intolerance that leads to inflammation. Eliminating these foods from your daily diet should also lessen or get rid of your gastrointestinal complaints.

Why Pinnertest is the most advanced food intolerance test

Pinnertest is the gold standard for most European nutritionists and dietitians; they require a Pinnertest report to study individual sensitivities and use it as a baseline to see if food elimination is working to improve health. Nearly half a million clients have benefited from Pinnertest.

What sets Pinnertest apart from older technologies such as Elisa and Cytotoxic methodologies is that it differentiates between permanent and temporary food intolerances. Pinnertest will eliminate the temporary intolerances that were caused by overindulging in certain foods right before the test or that were due to short-lived gastrointestinal problems. It also checks IgG and has a ninety percent reproducibility rate, even after six months have elapsed. Compare that to the less than fifteen percent reproducibility in older tests!

Pinnertest also gives much more precise results. You will not need to follow an elimination diet for weeks or months on end, enduring a reduced quality of life while looking for reactions when you add back a food. With older testing methods, this was equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack.
