Food Chemical Sensitivity as a Driver of Digestive Symptoms with Joanna Baker

Let's Gut Real - Easy to Digest Nutrition Science

Science & Medicine

Joanna and I talk about how food chemical sensitivity often presents like IBS but is unresolved with typical IBS interventions. In addition, these patients also have extra-intestinal symptoms. We discuss salicylates, glutamates, and amines as well as other sources of food chemicals, and gaps in the current literature around food chemical sensitivity. Joanna Baker is an accredited practicing dietitian and registered nurse from Victoria, Australia. Her passion is to help others eat well, be well and feel great, without giving up the foods that they love. She founded a private practice called Every Day nutrition in 2013. Due to her medical background, Joanna is particularly adept at managing complex medical conditions like diabetes and heart disease alongside gut health issues Joanna has also suffered with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and food intolerance her entire life. She knows first-hand what it’s like to live with unpredictable gut upsets and dietary restrictions. At Everyday Nutrition, she aims to help people to pinpoint their food triggers, enabling them to identify what foods they can enjoy while keeping their gut happy at the same time. We discuss: What is food chemical sensitivity & how does it differ from IBS? What are symptoms of a food chemical sensitivity When would you consider food chemical sensitivity instead of IBS? What we think happens in patients who have a food chemical sensitivity to cause symptoms? What is a low food chemical diet? Food sources of salicylates, glutamates, amines and other food chemicals What are current limitations in the research with food chemical sensitivity and where should research go? Where can people find information on food chemical sensitivity? Follow Joanna at www.everydaynutrition.com or on Facebook or Instagram.
