When a person has difficulty in digesting certain foods it is termed as Food Intolerance. The symptoms are Nausea, Stomach Bloating, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cough and in some cases Heart Burn, Headaches, Irritability and Nervousness.

Most common foods which people might be intolerant to are Dairy Products, Wheat, certain vegetables like Capsicum, Cucumber, Peanuts, undercooked beans, caffeine, tea, chocolates, some kinds of fish, Mint, Tomato sauce, Citrus fruits and foods with added preservatives. 

The best current treatment for food intolerance is to either avoid the suspected foods or eat them less often and in smaller amounts, as well as taking some supplements that may help digestion.

Food Allergy is different from Food Intolerance. Food Allergies cause an immune system reaction which can become serious or life threatening. Food intolerance symptoms are less serious and mostly limited to digestive problems.
