Food Allergy vs Food Intolerance


Itâ??s pretty common to have a reaction to a certain food, but in most cases its intolerance rather than a true allergy. Why does it matter? Although they may have similar symptoms, a food allergy can be more serious. Carrie Snyder, a Nutritionist with Complete Family Medicine, stopped by the set of Good Morning Heartland to break it down for us. WATCH VIDEO ABOVE to learn more.


Food Allergy:


Usually comes on suddenly

Small amount of food can trigger

Happens every time you eat the food

Can be life-threatening


Food Intolerance:


Usually comes on gradually

May only happen when you eat a lot of the food

May only happen if you eat the food often

Is not life-threatening
