For many people, every day is Burger Day! Whether it is a birthday party, a work event or even just a normal meal, so many people will be sparking up the barbie and having a nice juicy burger! That is, unless, you have a meat intolerance.

People often have meat in their diet because it is a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, but it also has a boatload of iron which people need to have in their diet. However, meat does not agree with everyone, leading to many of our people around the world, including our customers, experiencing uncomfortable intolerance symptoms.

These symptoms of meat intolerance include headaches, bloat, and itchy skin. If you do experience any symptoms after eating meat then it may mean that you have a meat intolerance. Test Your Intolerance can confirm whether or not you have a meat intolerance with a food intolerance test.
