ALCAT Food Testing

The ALCAT (antigen leukocyte cellular antibody) test identifies food sensitivities. The test involves a blood draw (whole blood sample) to determine specific white blood cell reactions to foods and other substances.

If you are choosing the ALCAT test to identify your personal food sensitivities, test as many foods as you can afford. Some patients test only 50 or 100 foods and then ask if a food not on the list is OK to eat. “I don’t know,” I tell them. “That the food wasn’t tested!”

The more foods you test, the more you are likely to have in the non-reactive, “safe to eat” category.
