What is the difference between allergy and food intolerance?

Food Allergy

Food allergy is a specific kind of intolerance to a food or one of its components, which activates the immune system. The offending food causes a number of chain reactions in the immune system, including the production of antibodies. These cause the segregation of chemicals such as histamine, which causes symptoms such as itching, runny nose, cough or breathing disorders.

Food Intolerance?

The food intolerance affects to metabolism but not the immune system of the body. This happens when the body can’t digest properly a food or one of its components. For example lactose intolerance it’s caused by the lack of a digestive enzyme called lactase, which breaks down milk sugar. Currently the celiac disease induced by gluten is increasingly nowadays in our society, serologic tests detect a 1 case per 100 people.
