What is SCD and a nutritionally balanced diet?
The Specific Carbohydrate diet® is a nutritionally balanced diet focused on removing grains, dairy (except for hard cheeses and yogurt fermented over 24 hours) and sugars (excepting honey). The diet focuses on natural nutrient rich foods including vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. People on the diet can still have breads and pastries but ingredients are shifted from grain flours to nut flours such as almond flour and coconut flour. Although its use and popularity began to treat celiac disease, it's positive effects have now been shown in IBD.
