In brief: Food Intolerance
Separate from a true food allergy.
An intolerance is a non-immune mediated adverse reaction to whatever is eaten (best example is lactose intolerance....Loss of the lactase enzyme). Bloating is one of the most common side effects as your body is unable to process the food.
