Study: Gluten Is not Worsening the IBS Symptoms

In a new study, researchers from Sweden evaluated specific food types and their effect on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and found that gluten and fermentable carbohydrates have little impact on the symptoms of the condition.Study Gluten Is not Worsening the IBS Symptoms

They conducted a large, randomized, double-blind study in which compared people with moderate-to-severe IBS eating three diet types. The study included 103 people who were randomly assigned to groups that were either rich in fermentable carbohydrates (oligo-, di-, monosaccharides, and polyols), rich in gluten, or a placebo with nothing added to it.

First author Elise Nordin explains the results of the study: “Our study shows that gluten has no effect on IBS symptoms. We performed a large, double-blinded intervention trial, and our results are in accordance with several other trials. There is accumulating evidence suggesting that gluten, per se, may not cause adverse effects on a group level among subjects with IBS.”
