The Green Guide
One of our comprehensive test packages incorporating vegetarian and superfoods. Your blood serum will be analysed against 90 common trigger foods to determine precisely which individual foods could be contributing to low grade inflammation and fueling your uncomfortable symptoms.
A specialised laboratory performs a reliable diagnostic test (ELISA) to measure IgG antibodies to 90 vegetarian foods in your blood. Based on the results of the antibody titre, the foodstuffs are then categorized into three groups:
- Not elevated
- Highly elevated

Alternatives to the most common foods are also tested so you can enjoy a wider variety of foods.
✔️ Used by GPs and clinicians in over 40 countries
✔️ Conducted in specialised certified German labs
✔️ Undertaken with medically validated ELISA test method
✔️ Tested with blood serum for accuracy
Right food, better health
90 individual foods are tested using a sophisticated and reliable blood analysis for IgG food allergies. We combine this with our unique post-test guidance, which includes personal nutritional guidelines to help you find the foods that are good for you and to pinpoint any individual ‘trigger foods’. By avoiding the foods that cause you problems, inflammatory processes can be reduced or even stopped, and your body is able to recover.
We’ve heard customer stories where they have excluded food and used food substitutions, for example a gluten free diet, but the substitution food created more issues. The test will indicate what the right choice is for you.
Your comprehensive report contains accurate results and personal nutritional guidelines, which lead you through your change in diet.
ImuPro IgG food allergy testing can identify
✔️ Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity (Gluten intolerance)
✔️ Gluten and dairy free alternatives
✔️ Cow’s milk protein (casein, whey) not identified with lactose intolerance tests

Specific categories the ImuPro Basic 90 foods may help with:
- Crohn’s disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Joint pain
- Chronic weight problems
- Difficulty losing weight
- Atopic dermatitis-like skin problems
Mood related symptoms
- Low energy and chronic fatigue
ImuPro nutritional guidelines contain 3 important steps:
All foods with high levels of IgG antibodies are avoided during this phase so inflammatory processes can be reduced or stopped.
To discover personal trigger foods, avoided foods are introduced back into your diet one by one. Only one new food at a time is reintroduced to determine if it’s responsible for your complaints.
The trigger foods identified in the provocation phase are avoided for at least one year so the IgG antibodies can degrade and your body can recover. In some instances, there may be one or two foods that need to be avoided permanently.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference with ImuPro’s Vegetarian 90 test compared to other intolerance tests?
The ImuPro Vegetarian 90 test uses blood serum for testing rather than hair, breath, skin-prick or skin-scratch testing. Our ELISA-based blood serum test is stable, reliable and completely reproducible. Other blood testing methods, including whole blood or cytotoxic testing, can be unreliable due to morphological changes taking place within the sample if it isn’t tested within a certain time-frame. Other blood test methods can be affected by drugs or medication. It is important to do your research and make an educated decision on which test method is best for you.
Does the Vegetarian 90 help diagnose gluten or lactose intolerance?
All ImuPro IgG tests diagnose gluten intolerance (non-Coeliac gluten sensitivity) and provide gluten alternatives. This is different to Coeliac disease.
Lactose intolerance however is an enzyme deficiency not involving the immune system. People generally have issues with cow’s milk proteins, so even lactose-free milk can be a potential source of inflammation. The Vegetarian 90 tests for cows milk products like milk, cheeses and yoghurt. This is important because each food contains unique proteins, so your diet can be tweaked very selectively.
Does the Vegetarian 90 test include common health foods or seafood?
The Vegetarian 90 is the only test that includes relatively new superfoods like acai, acerola, goji, chia seeds and hemp seeds. It also includes gluten grains, chicken eggs and milk products. The Vegetarian test does not test for any fish, seafood, meat, sweeteners, preservatives, tea or coffee.
What can I expect from my results?
Your blood serum sample is analysed in ImuPro’s German laboratories to determine the presence of specific IgG antibodies to a wide variety of individual foods including gluten & non-gluten grains, fruit, vegetables, yeast, milk products, egg, salads, legumes, soy, seeds & nuts, spices & herbs. These IgG antibodies are detected due to their ability to bind to specific proteins in 90 analysed foods. Based on the results of the antibody titre, these foods are then categorised into three groups: not elevated, elevated and highly elevated.
The specific IgG concentrations determined by the ImuPro test do not necessarily reflect the occurrence or the severity of serious clinical symptoms. They offer the basis for you to begin an elimination and provocation diet. ImuPro guides you through this process with three phases, explained in your results: the elimination phase, the provocation phase, and the stabilisation phase.
Will my blood sample spoil during shipping?
No. Your blood sample will be specially prepared by pathology (a process called “centrifuging”). This process ensures that the blood solids are separated from the clear liquid at the top (serum). The serum is what we require for testing. Serum is stable at room temperature for 7-8 days, can be refrigerated for 3 weeks or frozen for up to 12 months.
Does the Vegetarian 90 help diagnose histamine intolerance?
No. But you can purchase this as an add-on using the same blood sample and with a combined report. Histamine is a natural and important compound of the human body, regulating blood pressure and the immune system, and is involved in the nervous system. Diamine Oxidase (DAO) is the enzyme responsible for breaking down the histamine in foods. If your DAO enzyme activity is low, you will likely suffer from skin reactions, headaches, sinus congestion and other allergic type symptoms, particularly following high histamine foods like wine, cheese or chocolate.
How do I know if this test is right for me?
Symptoms of food allergy and intolerance can give us a wide variety of symptoms but identifying the right cause is not always easy. When we talk about allergies to food we often think about immediate reactions like lips or eyes swelling, hives, etc. These are called classic IgE allergies and we usually have these for life. ImuPro specialises in delayed IgG responses that build up in your system and cause low grade inflammation.
Symptoms like IBS, bloating & gas, eczema, joint pain, fatigue, headache and weight gain etc can often be caused by having a monotonous diet but knowing exactly how to pinpoint those foods is almost impossible without testing. You can eat something for breakfast and not notice a symptom for up to 3 days.
If you’re suffering from any of the following symptoms: Gastrointestinal issues (bloating, diarrhea, IBS, etc), weight gain or inability to lose weight, headaches, skin conditions, joint pain, fatigue, anxiety… it may be something you’re eating.
Is IgG food testing accurate?
Your IgG food allergy test will be performed by a highly professional and specialised in vitro diagnostic laboratory. The lab will analyse your serum sample and determine the presence of specific IgG antibodies to a broad variety of foods. The antibodies are detected by their ability to bind to specific proteins from up to 270 analysed foods. Based on the results of the antibody titre, the foodstuffs are then categorised into three groups: not elevated, elevated and highly elevated.
The specific IgG concentrations determined by the test do not necessarily reflect the occurrence or the severity of serious clinical symptoms. They offer the basis for an elimination and provocation diet. ImuPro guides you through this process with three phases: the elimination, the provocation and the stabilisation phase.
Critics often argue that every human being produces IgG antibodies to foods and that allergies are rare. However, they are often referring to classic type I allergy and not sufficiently differentiating between types of antibodies. Type I allergies are associated with quick-reaction symptoms, e.g. a rash, hives or swelling. Such symptoms are usually based on the release of histamine in which IgE antibodies are involved. ImuPro, however, tests for IgG antibodies which can trigger delayed type III allergies – ImuPro does not test IgE mediated acute allergies (type I) or merely IgG-4-antibodies (non inflammatory). ImuPro tests for all subclasses of pro-inflammatory IgG (1, 2, 3 and 4). The differences with regard to types of allergy and the different classes of antibodies have to be kept in mind when evaluating the ImuPro test.
Note: ImuPro does not examine classic IgE-mediated allergies (type I) or intolerances to lactose, fructose and histamine. In such cases, specific test systems should be applied.
