Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Food Additives: To Add Fuel on the Flames!/Nutrients

Goal

Identify relevant studies on diet and/or food additive and their role in inflammatory bowel dieseases (IBDs).

Results

We found numerous experimental studies highlighting the key role of food additives in IBD exacerbation but epidemiological studies on food additives on IBD risk are still limited. As diet is a modifiable environmental risk factor, this may offer a scientific rationale for providing dietary advice for IBD patients.
