According to various studies, an estimated 20-25% of the U.S. population are affected by food sensitivities and that estimate may be much higher.

Symptoms can present hours or up to 3 days after consumption, making it very difficult to draw a connection between the food and the reaction. The delayed response can also cause individuals to suffer from unexplained health conditions for months or years.
