Food alergies and intolerences 

Most people are familiar with the life-threatening nature of serious food allergies, but there are many other types of adverse reactions to foods, often referred to as food sensitivities.

Food allergy symptoms can be triggered by even the tiniest amount of food and the reaction is usually immediate. In food sensitivities, a larger dose of the problem food is needed to elicit a response and the symptoms can take a few hours of days to begin.

Some people are sensitive to several groups of foods, making it harder to determine what’s causing the symptoms. The most common symptoms of food intolerance include:

  • Bloating

  • Migraines

  • Headaches

  • A cough

  • Runny nose

  • Feeling under the weather

  • Stomach ache

  • Irritable Bowel

  • Skin Rashes

 

Sometimes the culprit is a common food such as dairy, eggs, a nut, a bean, a grain, a fish, a fruit or a vegetable. Other times it’s something hidden such as a food colouring, additive or processing aid.
