Dairy Intolerance

Cow’s milk is a common cause of food allergies in babies and toddlers. Although some children outgrow cow’s milk allergy by the age of 5-10 years old, there are a lot more may not resolve the issue.
Reactions can occur within minutes or up to several days after having cow’s milk, and other dairy products.
Rapid onset reactions usually occur within 15 minutes and sometimes up to 2 hours after exposure to cow’s milk or other dairy products such as cheese; cakes; chocolate;sauce mixes;pasta dishes; milk shakes; sweets; all cream; creme fraiche; ice cream. 

Symptoms can include:
wheezing and  abdominal discomfort; sickness and nausea; diarrhoea; hay fever symptoms; eczema; hives itching skin; headache; sinusitis; and throat problems, to name a few.

If you do have an intolerance to milk and dairy you can find your body over produces mucus resulting in a loose chesty cough. Infants and young children can also have constant ear infections even become floppy or tired.


Cow’s milk is ‘hidden’ in many foods as well as drinks, be mindful of sauce mixes, pasta dishes, milkshakes, sweets, and Chocolate. cream: single, double, soured cream and whipping cream and of course ice cream.  If there any foods you eat a lot of, then check the packaging.

Lactose Intolerance

is not the same as milk intolerance and can and does cause confusion. lactose intolerance  is caused by the lack of the enzyme lactase, which helps to digest the milk sugar called lactose.
Symptoms can look very much like a milk intolerance. If you think you or a family member may have a dairy intolerance, then a food intolerance test is the quickest way to find out. Elimination diets are also an option but you do need to keep a very strict food diary  be patient this will take time.  checkout ideas and tips here Food for Life

Gluten free products

(In the free from section of the supermarket)

These products are low in amino acids, B vitamins, and iron.
They also contain fermented sugars
Fructose corn syrup may also be used
not as healthy as you may think, so if you are grain intolerant and not gluten intolerant and you are eating these free from foods, you may well find more symptoms appear due to the fermented sugars in these products.  
A food intolerance test can put your mind at rest, or an elimination diet but be sure to keep an accurate food journal.

Wheat Intolerance symptoms

Wheat is tricky to completely remove from your diet as it appears to be in everything, however if you drastically reduce your intake, this could be enough to help your body get over difficulty with digesting wheat. You may think you have no problem with wheat but the symptoms can be tiredness, bloating and a general sluggish feeling in your body. It can also result in poor absorption of other foods as it clogs the colon resulting in your body becoming toxic and acidic. check out ideas and tips on Food for Life page
