What is the most common Food intolerance?
Food intolerance is a condition in which a person is unable, or finds it difficult to digest certain foods, and experiences gastrointestinal disturbances when they eat such foods. It happens when the digestive system cannot break down certain ingredients in food. Symptoms of food intolerance primarily relate to the digestive system and are not much of a concern. On the other hand, food allergy is dangerous. Can anyone tell me what is the most common food intolerance?
@anzelm The three most common food intolerances are Lactose, casein, and gluten. Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, rye, and barley.
Casein is a protein found in milk, and Lactose is a sugar that is found in milk. Symptoms of food intolerance include-Diarrhea, Bloating, rashes, Abdominal pain, and nausea. Treatment includes avoiding food that causes symptoms. Thanks!
