What about food allergy and intolerance? Are both similar or not?

The difference between a food allergy and sensitivity is the body's response. When you have a food allergy, your immune system causes the reaction. If you have a food sensitivity or intolerance, the reaction is triggered by the digestive system.

That's funny, the original question was posted almost 2 years ago and never got a response. Strange that no one noticed it. Thanks for replying, Bill Hudson. Your answer makes sense. I have no food allergies but I do have an intolerance to gluten, and I definitely know when I have inadvertently consumed something that contains gluten!

When I first joined HH in 2011 I spent hours going through the archives, and I may have responded to some old posts. I guess that is what Bill also did, with his useful answer.
