Food intolerance is a food-borne adverse reaction that does not involve the immune system. Lactose, sugars and gluten are few common ingredients that cause food intolerance worldwide. The onset of symptoms is generally slower and may be delayed for several hours after eating the offending food. Multiple food or food group intolerance is common and it is difficult to diagnose whether food intolerance is due to a chronic disease or a particular food ingredient. Gluten-free and lactose-free diabetic foods are recommended to overcome food intolerance. Celiac patients consume mostly gluten-free foods because they cannot digest the gluten found in wheat, barley, and other similar grains. Lactose intolerant people prefer lactose-free foods because they lack the enzyme necessary for the digestion of milk sugar.

In contrast, the high price of gluten-free products and low awareness of food intolerance impede the growth of the market for food intolerance products.
