Understanding Food Intolerance
Food intolerance are often limited to the digestive system, usually mediated by IgG antibodies, as there is a problem digesting the food. It is more chronic, less acute, less obvious in its presentation, and often more difficult to diagnose than a food allergy. Symptoms of food intolerance vary greatly and can be mistaken for the symptoms of a food allergy. It can be difficult to determine the offending food causing food intolerance because the response generally takes place over a prolonged period of time.

Also certain medical conditions cause food intolerance which include Lactose Intolerance, Salicylates Intolerance, Glutamate Intolerance, Wheat Intolerance (Celiac Disease), Amines Intolerance, Food Additives Intolerance and Egg Intolerance.
