What is the difference between a Food Allergy and Food Intolerance?
Food allergies are quite rare, affecting about 2% of the adult population. During an allergic reaction, the body's immune system believes it is being invaded and produces IgE (Immunoglobulin E) antibodies to fight off the food or drink ingredient it mistakenly considers to be harmful.
The body's inflammatory response in this circumstance can vary from mild to severe and can affect one or more systems in the body, such as the digestive system, respiratory system or the skin. In extreme cases, the immune system triggers a response throughout the whole body, resulting in a systemic reaction (anaphylaxis) which is potentially fatal.
The most common foods that cause allergic reactions are:
- groundnuts (peanuts)
- nuts from trees (Brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts)
