Is what you are eating making you ill?

Though food provides the necessary nutrients for good health and wellbeing, there are certain food that will make us unwell. This could come in the form of a digestive disorder or it could trigger a response from our body’s immune system and it can sometimes be life threatening.  

Welcome to Food Intolerance and Food Allergy website. 

Food intolerance and food allergy are both health condition that affect some people when certain foods are taken. However, food intolerance and food allergy are not similar.

The difference between food intolerance and food allergy:

  • Food intolerance happens when certain food taken are not digested well. The reason for incomplete digestion is due to a lack of certain digestive enzymes required to digest that particular food.  Food intolerance symptoms do not surface immediately after the sensitive food is taken. The symptoms are often mistaken for common health problems such as headache, diarrhoea and bloating and it can vary from person to person. Though it is not life threatening, it will create discomfort.
  • Food allergy is a condition where the immune system produces antibodies to attack the protein in a food it mistook as a foreign substance. These IgE antibodies will set off an almost immediate allergic reaction to the body. This reaction could surface in the form of rashes, wheezing, coughing and it can sometimes be life threatening.
