Tummy ache from chocolate? Skin itching from wheat? Often, food sensitivity is to blame.
Food intolerance (“non-allergic food hypersensitivity”) is a negative reaction, often delayed, to a food, or edible that produces symptoms in one or more organs. There are numerous causes and types of food sensitivities, most of which cause delayed hypersensitivity reactions to the food. True food allergies are immune reactions that typically give immediate reaction (a few minutes to a few hours) to foods.
A large percentage of people have some sort of food reaction, which can cause a plethora of symptoms, from diarrhea to brain fog. Food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. No peanuts on the airplane? Blame food allergy.
