PRODUCE Study Website

The PRODUCE study, which stands for Personalized Research on Diet in Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, will compare the effectiveness of a strict Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) versus a modified SCD in reducing symptoms and inflammation in people with IBD. The organizers of this study prepared many resources for participants that are helpful in understanding the basics of the diet.

The study documentation includes specific guidelines for implementing modified SCD, including which foods are added, and how much of these added foods are allowed.

PRODUCE Study Website Highlights:
PRODUCE Study Materials for Enrolled Participants: On this page, you will find PDFs intended for enrolled participants, but that are useful for anyone implementing SCD or mSCD. Documents include the following: meal plans, FAQs, guide to reading food labels, instructions for making SCD yogurt, managing social activities, SCD brands, SCD snacks, SCD resources, SCD summaries (brief and detailed), recommended food stages for the study, SCD supplements, recipe links, and weight loss prevention.

Recipes Galore!

Find recipes that are compliant with many therapeutic diets. Note that while some sources focus on specific diets, because of similarities among therapeutic diets, often such recipes can be used for multiple diets. Some sources provide generally healthy diets ideal for those with dietary restrictions but are not guaranteed to be compatible with any specific diet. Be sure to understand the rules of your diet and double check all recipes for compliance.
