The symptoms of food intolerances

Today many people suffer from at least one food intolerance. Nonetheless, there is still a lot of confusion between food intolerance and allergy.

We can simply say that the first one is a reaction of the body to the lack of an enzyme used to digest a specific ingredient; the second one is still a reaction, but involves our immune system.

The symptoms of food intolerance can be more or less severe, depending on the sensitivity of each person and the intensity of the ailment.

Dysentery or constipation, stomach or abdominal pain, nausea, swelling, headache are the most common ones, but also lack of concentration, dizziness, depression, dermatitis and acne.

There are many types of food intolerance.

Here are the most common ones:


Gluten is the result of the combination of two proteins found in spelt, rye, barley, corn, kamut and other minor cereals. Gluten intolerance is one of the most challenging, if you can’t find top quality products, so that you do not miss the original ones.


Lactose is not only a type of sugar, but represents 98% of the sugars in milk. Lactose intolerance can be detected through a breath test. It is often the result of the lack of the enzyme lactase, and tends to disappear in adults.


Nickel is a metal similar to iron. Despite being part of some types of soils, it is very easy to be assimilated through food. If you suffer from nickel intolerance, you should avoid spinach, tomatoes, oily fish, chocolate and other canned food.


Eggs are very rich in iron and proteins, but in spite of this, they are not recommended in babies under 9-10 months. Egg intolerance generally refers to albumens, but also yolks can cause ailments like stomachache and skin redness.

Dried fruit and soy

Dried fruit, as well as soys, are high in proteins. Dried fruit and soy intolerance results in skin redness and stomach ache. Since dried fruit is not always detectable, especially in sweets, it is better to read the product labels.


Yeasts are a group of fungi with various shapes. Yeast intolerance results in general overexhaustion, problems of bacterial flora, slow digestion and swelling. It is better to do a specific test, and, if needed, ask a gastroenterologist for advice.
