Why take the Food Allergies training course?

In some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or life-threatening. In contrast, food intolerance symptoms are generally less serious and are limited to digestive problems.

If you have a food allergy, even a tiny amount of the offending food can cause an immediate and severe reaction. Food intolerance symptoms generally come on gradually and don’t involve an immune system reaction. If you have a food intolerance, you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending food without trouble.
