Lay Summary: 

This study is being done to find out if the use of resistant starch (RS) that is optimized for each individual will help alter and/or restore the “healthier” microbiome of the gut. It does not change the IBD treatment your doctor will use to treat your CD or UC. To do this, some of the participants in this study will get RS and others will receive a placebo (a substance that looks like the study RS but does not have any active or medicinal ingredients). The placebo in this study is not intended to have any effect on your IBD. A placebo is used to make the results of the study more reliable.

Participants include those currently enrolled in the main microbiome study and recently diagnosed with IBD, either Crohn’s Disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC).
