What’s the scoop with the FODMAP Diet? By Barbara Hopkins, MMSc, RD, LD
Food intolerance is not life-threatening but intolerance to one or more foods can be life-altering. Food intolerance (FI) is different than food allergy since FI does not involve IgE. FI affects the gastrointestinal tract leading to symptoms of bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea; some intolerance may provoke the immune system and promote inflammation.
