Food intolerance Vs. food allergy. What is the difference? A food intolerance, or a food sensitivity, occurs when a person has difficulty digesting a particular food. This can lead to symptoms such as intestinal gas, abdominal pain, or diarrhea. Food intolerance is often confused with a food allergy. A food allergy is when the body’s immune system reacts unusually to specific foods.
