Food sensitivity is an adverse reaction to a food substance that does not follow the general allergy pattern.

A typical food allergy would be the type of reaction that some people experience when eating certain foods, commonly peanuts, pine nuts or some fruits. This could include swelling of the lips, hives and the inability to breathe due to swelling of the windpipe.
