Food Allergies and Intolerances


With Dr Gill Hart

This week I’m speaking to Dr Gill Hart about food allergies and food intolerances, whom I consider to be the most informed scientist on food intolerance as well as an expert biochemist with over thirty years’ experience in the development and validation of hospital standard diagnostic tests and testing services. She has had her finger on the pulse of food intolerance tests for decades, so if you have ever suspected certain foods don’t suit you, do listen to this podcast.


Gill completed her PhD in 1987 and started her career as Senior Biochemist at the Hammersmith Hospital in London. Gill joined the food intolerance lab YorkTest in 2005 as Scientific Director and has reviewed, designed and led many research studies delving into the world of how to testing for food intolerances.

She is an expert in food intolerance testing, and also consumer health testing in general. She says that “it’s an exciting time for food intolerance and home heath testing as more than ever before, people feel empowered to make a positive difference to their health and wellbeing and prevent future health issues”.
