What Does Food Intolerance Mean?

Some people experience difficulty digesting certain foods. This is known as food intolerance, non-allergic food hypersensitivity, or non-IgE mediated food hypersensitivity. Keep in mind that this is different from food allergy.

Some common symptoms of food intolerance are:

  • Stomach pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea.

These symptoms usually surface a few hours after consuming the particular food.
