So, a lot of times, people get confused between
food allergies and food intolerances, but they’re two very different entities. A food allergy, is a clear allergy. That means, if we take some food that we are
allergic to, we can get anaphylaxis or hives or we can have our throat closing up, that’s
a true allergy. Now food intolerances, just mean that we don’t
tolerate the food, so we have more of a digestive system reaction. So, we may have some nausea, we may have some
pain, may have some indigestion when we consume those foods, but we don’t actually have a
real allergic reaction, where we need to worry about a life threatening reaction.
