Food intolerance : A food intolerance is any reaction to a food that i can't explain physiologically for you. You have symptoms, but i as your allergist cannot prove that they are due to a classic allergic reaction, lactose intolerance, celiac disease, a previous gallbladder operation, a viral infection, food poisonong or anything else that we do understand. It's vague, but means you don't feel good when you eat it.
