People who have food intolerance can experience just a few symptoms or many symptoms. It depends on individual vulnerability.

Some of the symptoms that can occur are: gut upsets, skin rashes, headaches, migraines, fatigue, depression, joint aches and pains, non allergic rhinitis, asthma or wheezing.

Food intolerance is defined as a reaction to food chemicals. This includes

  • Chemicals added to foods during manufacturing such as flavours, colours and preservatives 
  • Naturally occurring food chemicals- Salicylates, Amines and Glutamates.

The only way to confirm if food intolerance is causing or contributing to your symptoms is to do a dietitian supervised elimination diet (ED).
