What causes Food Intolerances?
Food Intolerances can be caused by an immune response related to food specific antibodies called IgG antibodies. A food Intolerance is not life threatening. It can take up to 3 days for symptoms to develop making it hard to identify the culprit food.
Please note food allergies are not the same as food intolerances and can be life threatening causing difficulty breathing, vomiting, and swelling of the lips. If you experience this kind of reaction you should seek medical advice.
