10 Causes of Ulcerative Colitis
9. Brown Rice
Food lovers will be disappointed to find out that brown rice may be a major cause of ulcerative colitis. Consumed throughout the world, and especially in Asian cultures, brown rice is an important staple food. It’s considered a whole grain and contains a considerable degree of fiber, most of which is insoluble, making it difficult to digest. This can cause discomfort and trigger symptoms ranging from bloating to bloody diarrhea. There are various types of brown rice including quinoa and buckwheat. Other derivatives should also be avoided. Try consuming rice that is easier to digest like white rice or long grain rice.
