Here are the main differences between food intolerances and food allergies:
- A food allergy is the body’s immune response to an offending allergen, whereas food intolerance doesn’t involve the immune system.
- Whilst food intolerances may cause severe discomfort, they are generally not life-threatening. Conversely, food allergies can actually be life-threatening and cause death.
- Food allergy symptoms occur very soon after coming into contact with the specific food element. In contrast, food intolerance symptoms can surface only hours after ingestion.
