About Our Egg Yolk Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Egg Yolks (the yellow portion of a cracked egg).
Foods that may contain egg include salad dressings, breads, breaded foods, muffins, cakes, pancakes, waffles, meringues, marshmallows, prepared soups and beverages, frostings, ice cream and sherbets, pie fillings, sausages, prepared meats (egg as a binding agent), mayonnaise, coatings and breading for fried foods, tartar and hollandaise and other sauces.
Egg yolks are used to make mayonnaise and other dishes high in fat. Egg yolks are important as binding agents in many preparations in cooking due to the emulsifying action of lecithin. This property is crucial for mayonnaise and sauces such as Béarnaise and Hollandaise; custards such as crème anglaise, crème brûlée, crème caramel, lemon custard, and key lime pie; and meat dishes such as pâté and meatloaf.
Many individuals who are allergic to egg yolks are also allergic to egg whites.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 2 days
