Why are the foods to be avoided in the blue boxes on the bottom of the first page of the results, color coded?

The boxes at the bottom of the page with the blue border, are for the components that, if reactive, would eliminate more than one food from the eating pattern. They include Candida albicans, gluten and gliadin, and casein and whey.

The foods listed in these boxes are printed in different colors. These foods are also tested individually, and the text colors indicate the degree of reactivity to each of these foods. You may be wondering why you can have one reaction to a food component, but then a different type of reaction to foods listed below it. For example, you might react moderately to gluten, but wheat and rye show as green underneath (non-reactive). This means that even though there was no reaction to wheat/rye as a whole, when the isolated gluten protein was tested in a more concentrated form, a reaction occurred. In this instance, our suggestion would be to eliminate gluten, as well as the grains that contain it (regardless of their individual reactivity) for the recommended period of time. Therefore, even if the foods listed in the box indicate no reaction, those foods would be best avoided due to the reaction of the main tested component represented in the box (Candida albicans, gluten/gliadin, casein/whey.)
