Nourishment Notes


Mango has anti-inflammatory properties that may lower the inflammation associated with IBD. It may also be a well-tolerated fruit during a flare.

Refined grains

Refined grains, like white bread, rice, crackers, pasta and noodles, have less fermentable fiber and may be better tolerated by someone experiencing a flare.

Remission Remix

  • Top with Fruit
