Food intolerances or non-allergic food hypersensitivity refers to difficulty digesting certain foods. Typical symptoms can appear anywhere between a few hours to 48 hours after eating food.
This is different from a food allergy which is an immune reaction to specific foods and is a serious condition.
Food intolerances can take longer to appear, unlike allergies.
Causes of food intolerance can be due to certain enzymes, certain chemicals in foods, salicylates and histamines.
The most common types are lactose, wheat, gluten, caffeine, histamine, artificial colours additives, sweeteners and flavourings, FODMAPS and sulphites.
