ALCAT measures leukocyte cellular reactivity and change in the cell when exposed to certain food antigens. in whole blood which measures the immune systems response to food which leads to inflammation. This is a “delayed” immune response.
WHY ALCAT? The ALCAT test kit observes white blood cells (WBC’s) to see if there is a change in size, or a “reaction” to the food being tested. This is a direct immune system response to a food. You do NOT need to be eating the food in order for the food to “react” during the test.
White blood cell reactions to foods can lead to inflammation in the body. Inflammatory response can lead to symptoms such as skin eruptions, inability to lose weight, bloating and stomach irritability, pain and many more.

The ALCAT Test as been proven to be able to identify those foods that trigger Non-Allergic mechanisms to activate and induce the release of inflammatory mediators common in many chronic conditions where the symptom onset is not immediate. This delayed food sensitivity/intolerance is an activation of the innate immune system. These immune reactions can be caused by food particles that are small and undigested that evades complete digestion and are absorbed into the body to cause inflammation and symptoms. Some of these symptoms are weight gain, skin problems, GI distress, pain and more.
