food intolerance, definition of
- Food Intolerance
Food intolerance or non-allergic food hypersensitivity
is a term used widely for varied physiological responses associated with
a particular food, or compound found in a range of foods.
Food intolerance is negative reaction, often delayed, to a food, beverage, food additive, or compound found in foods that produces symptoms in one or more body organs and systems, but it is not a true food allergy. A true food allergy requires the presence of IgE antibodies against the food, and a food intolerance does not.
