Food Intolerances are on the rise. Everybody knows it and yet many people do not know what to do about it as some are not even aware that they have an intolerance to food. Well, Test Your Intolerance Canada offer a variety of tests which can tell you whether or not you have an intolerance to food, and whether it is to your favourite food.

Do you have an intolerance to food?

Throughout Canada, there is a lot of love for wheat, as it is included in everything. High on the list also are peanuts and coffee. Below, we discuss why each particular food is potentially harmful to your body, and also see why they are so popular!

1) Wheat

If you have an intolerance to food, then there is a chance it will probably be wheat. This is because it is in everything and it is difficult to avoid. As an intolerance or a sensitivity can come about through overexposure or overindulgence, then there is a chance that you have developed an intolerance to food. Why have we listed wheat? Because we believe it is important to spread the word that wheat can worsen the symptoms of IBS. So, keep an eye out! wheat is a common intolerance

2) Peanuts

You’ve probably all heard of a peanut allergy, and this is because it can be life-threatening. Fortunately for those who suffer from a peanut intolerance, it is not life-threatening, but can still have a serious impact on your daily life. Figures have shown that approximately one-third of Canadians have an intolerance to food. Peanuts can be found in bars and clubs and are a common favourite of people at Ice Hockey games.

3) Coffee

Nooooo, can you really have an intolerance to coffee? Yes, because it is full of caffeine! Caffeine is an increasingly important part of almost everyone’s life, as it gives many of us the boost that we need in the morning, alongside those pancakes brimming with maple syrup of course! So, you can sometimes consume too much coffee, and in return, you will develop an intolerance to caffeine. Remember, caffeine is also in chocolate, so be careful and make sure you get tested to ensure that you can continue to eat chocolate.
