Is this test for me?
The IgE – Food & Mold immediate allergy panel is for people to understand if the food they are eating is triggering allergic reactions. We analyze 31 food allergens and 5 molds to cover the most common foodborne allergen reactions and beyond. Complete a symptom checklist to help find out if your symptoms may be related to immediate allergies.
- One simple blood draw to evaluate your IgE reactions.
- No scratch test with an allergen and no concern about severe reactions to determine your allergies.
Signs of IgE Food & Mold Allergies
Immediate food allergies can trigger several different symptoms. The reaction will commonly occur within a few minutes, though sometimes the response will develop gradually over a few hours. Common allergic symptoms to food:
- Tingling or itching in the mouth
- Hives, itching, or eczema
- Swelling of the lips, face, tongue, and throat or other parts of the body
- Wheezing, nasal congestion, or trouble breathing
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
- Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting
Common allergic symptoms to mold:
- Sneezing or coughing
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Itchy eyes, throat, and nose
- Rash or hives
- Warm feeling in the neck or face
Laboratory Testing Process
IgE testing must be accurate and precise. Immuno Labs performs IgE panels on the best laboratory equipment available. We conduct our testing using fluorescent enzyme immunoassay (FEIA) that measures the concentration of circulating allergen-specific IgE antibodies in serum. This helps to identify specific allergic reactions and, when coupled with a history of exposure and allergic symptom development, may help identify allergic triggers. The testing process begins with the specific antigen being bound to a three-dimensional hydrophilic cellulose polymer, which can bind significantly more allergen than older disk methods. This substrate allows for increased antigen binding and improved sensitivity. Patient serum is mixed with the antigen-bound substrate, permitting antigen-specific patient IgE to complex. Next, the complexed substrate is mixed with an enzyme–IgE conjugate forming a secondary immune complex. Subsequently, a fluorogenic material is applied to the secondary immune complex, which results in the formation of a fluorescent secondary immune complex. Using a fluorometer, the fluorescence is read, and the quantification correlates with the quantity of patient IgE. Immuno Labs IgE testing demonstrates a very high specificity, high efficiency, and high sensitivity. The testing instrumentation we use has over 4,000 scientific articles, which shows its clinical value and why it is championed as “The Gold Standard” for in vitro IgE testing.
Immuno Labs offers the power of awareness, of knowing. An empowerment that enables you to change the way you feel, the way you think, how you see yourself and the world around you.
Lab results need to give more than insights. Our IgE panels provide allergen-specific recommendations to help you effortlessly take action and live allergy-free.

See what doctors and patients are saying about our blood tests for mold and food allergies.
“After having followed the recommendations given by Immuno labs and their Immuno 1 Bloodprint, I was pleased to discover that everything that they had claimed would happen did. In particular, my digestion and energy levels improved. I also discovered that Immuno Labs was an originator of many assays for food allergy testing. Accuracy has always been a challenge with food allergy testing. However, in my case, the accuracy of the testing proved itself. It came up with different recommendations and clinical results than I have gotten through other labs. Simply by removing the “correct” offending agents, the burden is taken off of the digestive and immune systems. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “If you do not rest upon the good foundation of nature, you will labor with little honor and less profit.” How true when applied to accurate food allergy testing. What great advice for all physicians. I would highly recommend that all physicians and their patients contact Immuno Labs to get their Immuno 1 Bloodprint.”
— Dr. Friedman, M.D.
“My name is Joseph Giacalone, and I recently had an Immuno 1 Blood Print done. To say the results have made me healthier would be an understatement. I used to suffer from horrible stomach pains, mood swings, irritability, compulsive eating, and excessive weight gain. I belong to my high school’s varsity track team, and I was unable to run the 110-meter and 300-meter dashes. Even though I appeared to be healthy, I was horribly sick on the inside. All of these symptoms greatly affected my daily life. I simply could not enjoy all of the pleasures that come with being a high school senior. Immuno Labs provided me with the causes of the unhealthy symptoms I was experiencing and gave me a way to change my unhealthy diet. After I received the results of the test, I quickly changed the foods I was eating. The improvement was almost immediate. I no longer suffer from any of the symptoms I was experiencing prior to the test results. Your Food-Blood Allergy test has improved the quality of my life, and words cannot express how grateful I am. Thank you, Immuno Laboratories!”
— Joseph Giacolone
Here are the answers to commonly asked questions about mold and food allergies and our food and mold allergy blood test.
What foods to avoid with a mold allergy.
If you have a mold allergy, foods that are high in mold should be avoided to limit symptoms. These include:
- Sour cream
- Pickled onions
- Cured or smoked meats and fish
- Hot dogs
- Jarred jams and jellies
- Canned juices
- Bread containing yeast
- Salad dressing
- Soy sauce
- Dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, dates, and figs
How dangerous is mold?
High mold exposure may cause allergic symptoms such as runny or stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, wheezing, and headaches. Repeated mold exposure can make a person more sensitive to mold, leading to more severe reactions. Some molds produce mycotoxins that can cause serious illness.
What will my food and mold allergy test results tell me?
The blood test for mold and food allergies tests for 36 reactive allergens. The results provide insight into what foods and molds you are sensitive to so you know what to avoid to improve your health.
How accurate is the test?
Immuno Labs works with its own laboratory facility to provide a 100% accurate personal Bloodprint. Our modern, independent laboratory provides precise test results based on over 50 quality controls. We guarantee reliable results from every test.
