Food - Other Adverse Reactions

Food intolerance is a term that is used for a wide range of adverse reactions to foods that cause symptoms such as stomach pain, bloating, gas/flatulence, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), rashes, hives (urticaria), recurrent mouth ulcers or headaches. Food intolerances are sometimes confused with, or mislabeled as food allergies, but they involve the digestive system, whilst food allergies involve the immune system. Unlike food allergy, food intolerances (except for sulphite and benzoate reactions) do not cause anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions), that can be life threatening.
