What’s the difference between food intolerances and food allergies?
The symptoms caused by a food intolerance are very different to allergy or IgE mediated responses. They are delayed and can appear up to three days after ingesting the offending food. This makes it very difficult to identify which foods are causing the problem without having a blood test. Food intolerances are caused by type III IgG mediated antibody response to foods.
These food allergies are easy to identify as you will react immediately to the food you have eaten, or at least within the hour. Some of the symptoms from an IgE-mediated response are severe swelling, breathing difficulty, rash, itching skin or anaphylactic shock. Food allergies are caused by a Type I IgE mediated antibody response to foods.
