The exact pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) remains uncertain but has been strongly postulated to be influenced by modifiable non-genetic environmental factors. One of these factors is the dysbiotic alteration in the gut microbiome . As a result, research into the alteration of the microbiome by probiotics [2-5], faecal microbiota transplant  and diet as potential therapeutic strategies have gathered pace over the past few years. The principle of these interventions presumes that reconfiguration of the microbiome toward a more “eubiotic” or less proinflammatory profile would lead to a reduction of intestinal inflammation . Diet has been hypothesized to play a role in the pathogenesis in inflammation, with research showing the effect of dietary exposures on the intestinal microbiome as well as mucosal integrity.
