There are many different symptoms that people may experience including:

Chemicals that can cause food chemical sensitivity include:

  • Salicylates

  • Amines

  • Glutamates

  • Preservatives

  • Artificial food colours

  • Flavour enhancers e.g. MSG

  • Identifying the dose of food chemicals that you can tolerate

  • Label reading for trigger foods
