There are four categories which are related to negative reaction against food,
Some people do have a higher sensitivity of certain character of food compared to others. The high sensitivity usually comes from chemical composition contained in the food. For example, we know that coffee and tea contain caffeine. Most people will feel fresh after drinking coffee and tea, however people with food sensitivity will get nervous and have a little tremor in their hands after drinking even half a cup of coffee.
Food intolerance is a physical reaction to food, but does not involve body immune system. It happens as your body cannot digest it perfectly. In a dairy intolerance, for example, a person with this condition will get gastritis or diarrhea after drinking some milk. His body failed to produce the required enzyme that is needed to digest sugar and lactose in the milk. However, he can still eat small portion of cheese or modified milk.
The Food Intolerance Bible
Food allergy is quite similar with food intolerance, but food allergy is involving your body immune system. Certain food which contain allergen to which you are allergic to, can trigger allergy symptoms. In this case, the only prevention you can take is by eliminating the allergen from your menu. If you have a milk allergy, it means that you cannot drink milk, or even just a small slice of cake that contains milk.
