Food intolerance warning about ingredients

May 30, 2008, 7:21 am

While scientists are constantly explaining ways in which diet can be used to improve health, eating too much of certain ingredients can lead to the development of food intolerances, experts have warned.

Recent studies have suggested that chocolate and tomatoes can help prevent sunburn and keep wrinkles at bay, but testing firm YorkTest Laboratories warned that these foods can cause bloating, headaches, fatigue and bad skin if eaten in too large a quantity.

“Every week there will be people discovering they have food intolerance to either chocolate or tomato,” said Les Rowley, of YorkTest.

“There will be ill health brought on by eating these foods, and others, so if you are take a food intolerance test and find out exactly what foods could be making you ill.”

Meanwhile, a Wrexham-based bakery has announced that it will create 25 new jobs with the launch of a new line of gluten-free bread. The Village Bakery will produce four million loaves a year to be distributed around Europe.
