In brief: Typically not

Food allergies usually manifest with oral symptoms like burning, itching and swelling and skin symptoms like hives.
Severe reactions can include shortness of breath and/or lightheadedness and dizziness. Gas is more indicative of a digestive intolerance.

In brief: Allergy v Intolerant

There are many different reactions to foods including true allergic reactions, food intolerance, or immune-mediated inflammation to gluten in people with celiac disease.
If you were allergic, food ingestion would cause symptoms including hives, itching, swelling, breathing trouble, throat tightness, etc. Gas, cramps, GI discomfort, diarrhea with food ingestion usually related to intolerance
