Primary: Nutritional therapy in the form of a whole-food based smoothie can be used to induce remission of active Crohn's disease.
Secondary: Consuming a whole foods based smoothie will result in measurable changes to the microbiome of individuals with Crohn's disease and healthy controls.
The specific aims of this proposal are:
- To develop a whole-food based smoothie, based on principles of the specific carbohydrate diet, that is comparable in macronutrients and micronutrients to formulas used for exclusive enteral nutritional (EEN) therapy in Crohn's disease.
- To evaluate the ability of a whole-food based smoothie to induce remission of active Crohn's disease.
- To evaluate changes to the intestinal microbiome in healthy individuals consuming a whole-food based smoothie diet.
