Food intolerance, or non-allergic food hypersensitivity, refers to difficulty in digesting certain foods. Food intolerance is different from a food allergy.
Malabsorption also refers to difficulty in digesting certain foods or difficulty with the absorption of nutrients from food.
Both food intolerance and malabsorption can affect an individual’s growth and development. In addition, both conditions can lead to specific illnesses.
