What is Food Intolerance?

Food Intolerance is a hypersensitivity to a certain food. It is a non-allergic reaction. While a food allergy triggers a response from the immune system, like difficulty breathing, hives or redness, food tolerance does not. It appears as digestive issues after eating certain foods. DOme foods that people tend to have a food intolerance for are things like dairy, grain and gluten and foods that tend to trigger gas like cabbage and beans,

Why Should You Care if You Have a Food Intolerance?

If you find that you are often dealing with a painful belly ache, gas and bloating or diarrhea, you might have a food intolerance. There used to be two ways of finding out the issue. You could eliminate foods, then slowly reintroducing foods to see what causes a reaction. This has many downfalls to it. Some people do not always trigger when they eat food. For some people, it is a hit or miss. Sometimes they can eat it and be fine other times not. This means you might eat it after reintroduction and be fine. Until you eat it later and struggle again. The other way was having a doctor perform tests. The problem with this is that many doctors are only looking for food allergies. Most do not check for food intolerance. Again, you could get incorrect results.
