1. Food intolerance is a reproducible abnormal reaction to food or food components which is not psychologically based. 2. It is straightforward to identify immediate hypersensitivity, but delayed reactions (4-27 hours) are more difficult. 3. The main foods causing reactions are wheat, milk, chicken, eggs, fish and shellfish, but any food can cause a reaction in a sensitised individual. 4. The solution to the problem relies on identification of the causative food(s) and its total elimination from the diet.
