Your body’s immune system is supposed to detect germs that make you sick and eliminate them. An allergy is when your body mistakes a protein in your food for a germ. In response, your immune system releases chemicals such as histamine that cause inflammation.
Food allergies are similar to food sensitivities, but there is a difference in how your body reacts. Food allergies cause an immune system reaction, while food sensitivities cause a digestive system reaction. Gluten sensitivity is a common food sensitivity.
