Crohn’s Disease Diet: 7 Foods to Avoid


2. Raw Fruits and Vegetables

Those who have Crohn’s disease should also avoid eating raw fruits and vegetables, especially those with peels. Why? Because they are loaded with fiber, particularly in the skins, and fiber can worsen symptoms such as diarrhea, gas, and abdominal pain.

But fruits and vegetables shouldn’t necessarily be eliminated from your diet; they just need to be prepared differently. For example, edible peels should be removed before eating. And Healthline.com suggests “baking and steaming fruits and veggies can make them more easily digestible.” Canned fruit or fruit juices are also good alternatives to raw.
