In brief: Good history
Food intolerances come in many varieties and the first step in the investigation is taking a good history.
Depending on the findings from history and physical findings, tests may include, examination of stool, exclusion of food, blood tests for allergy markers and nutritional deficiencies. See this site for more info.http://www.webmd.com/allergies/foods-allergy-intolerance.
