In brief: ?intolerance

Not all food induced reactions are allergic in nature, in fact, most are intolerances.
Regardless, if symptoms occur consistently with the same food, it should be treated as an allergy and avoided. Keep a 'food journal' to help you determine a common ingredient.

In brief: Possibly milk/wheat

If stomach/digestive issues are your only symptom, then you are likely not having an allergic reaction to anything - especially if your testing was negative.
What you are likely experiencing is food intolerance. Most commonly in adults, this may be due to milk/lactose intolerance or wheat intolerance. You can try soy milk or lactaid, and try switching to whole or sprouted grains.
