Proteins are less likely than other macronutrients to cause the kind of GI symptoms that we are discussing (nonim-munologically mediated symptoms) because they are ingested as large polymers that do not exert much osmotic activity, and they are efficiently digested and absorbed by the intestine. Some foods, however, contain bioactive amines and peptides that may influence gut activity.
