Undoubtedly, food is essential in preserving health and creating human diseases. While it is crucial for the development and preservation of the health of the human organism, it can lead to severe and chronic health problems (e.g., celiac disease, anaphylactic shock).

Food intolerance refers to the immune system's reaction to certain foods. This reaction is different from a known allergy in which IgE antibodies are involved. An allergy is rarer and is a direct reaction that often has catastrophic effects. Food intolerance is a type 3 hypersensitivity characterized by the involvement of IgG antibodies. It is much more common (about 45% of the population), has a delayed onset (2 to 72 hours after food consumption), and is usually associated with chronic health problems.
