What’s the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity?

A food intolerance is when the body reacts in a negative way when it is exposed to certain food items. When looking for either an allergy test or an intolerance test, you should make sure to not confuse the two. An allergy is a more severe reaction and tends to be a lifelong condition.

What exactly is an intolerance?

A food intolerance is when the body has an inability to digest an item properly. This could be a food that a person regularly consumes or one that they don’t ingest regularly. A food sensitivity can be caused by overindulgence of a particular food, say, you eat pizza every night! Intolerances can occur due to a number of reasons, the two most common are:

  • The body is lacking the necessary digestive enzymes(s) for the certain food and therefore cannot digest the item properly or efficiently take the nutrients from it. A sensitivity resulting from over-consumption or overexposure.
  • Many symptoms are the result of a sensitivity to a particular item. A sensitivity can occur from overconsumption or overexposure of an item.
