Article Excerpts about Food Additive Adverse reaction -- citric acid intolerance

This difference between the clinically proven prevalence of food allergy and the public perception of the problem is in part due to reactions called "food intolerances" rather than food allergies. A food allergy, or hypersensitivity, is an abnormal response to a food that is triggered by the immune system. The immune system is not responsible for the symptoms of a food intolerance, even though these symptoms can resemble those of a food allergy. (Source: excerpt from Food Allergy and Intolerances, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
