MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
BLAND DIET




PURPOSE


The bland diet is designed to provide adequate nutrition during treatment of inflammatory or ulcerative conditions of the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. It is intended to decrease irritation of the mucosa and aid in physical comfort.




DESCRIPTION


The basic food groups are used for planning nutritionally adequate meals. The diet may vary due to individual food intolerances and the patient's lifestyle. Active gastric irritants are avoided. These include caffeine, coffee, decaffeinated coffee, tea, cocoa, carbonated beverages containing caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, pepper, chili powder, and any other foods that cause individual discomfort. Most foods stimulate gastric secretions and are therefore not useful as buffers. Three meals per day are recommended, if tolerated, since additional meals stimulate acid secretion. Avoid bedtime snacks that can stimulate acid production during the night.






BASIC INFORMATION


There is not scientific evidence that foods other than those listed above will contribute to the formation or continuation of ulcerative disease.

NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


The bland diet will meet the requirements for all essential nutrients. Food intolerances or habits that limit variety and quantity or food selection may cause some deficiencies. Patients on this diet will need to be individually assessed to determine if all nutritional supplementation is necessary. Blood loss may lead to iron deficiency.

NOTE: This diet should only be utilized under the guidance of a "nutritionally trained" health care provider.
