Antimicrobial food additives influence the composition of human gut microbiota

When you consider studies show proteobacteria are higher in crohn's it makes you wonder if preservatives in the food supply are also contributing to the development of IBD. This study tested sodium benzoate, sodium nitrite, potassium sorbate(a form of sorbic acid) and sodium sulfite.

When tested the effect of the presence of AMFA (Antimicrobial food additives) in diet in vivo, we have found that low AMFAconcentrations decrease the diversity of human gut microbiota, specifically the Actinobacteria and Verrucomicrobia phyllum disappear, and increase the representation of the Proteobacteria Phyllum, high AMFA concentrations in diet entirely disrupt the gut microbiota ecosystem with the Proteobacteria phyllum overgrowth.

Individual Proteobacteria, in particular (adherent-invasive) Escherichia coli, Campylobacter concisus and enterohepatic Helicobacter, have all been associated with the pathogenesis of IBD.

you are definitely on the right track. preservatives, as well as antibiotics (the opposite of probiotics..) kill all the bacteria, the bad ones and the good ones. the preservatives preserve food by inhibiting the growth of any bacteria on it, and they pass trough your intestines doing the same thing, unfortunately
Crohn's microbial composition is very different than the normal one. renewing the very disturbed microflora is definitely a step forward to healing Crohn's and many other diseases.
