A Breakthrough in Managing Crohn's Disease

Meet Jill, a Dietitian at Sperri, committed to tackling the unique challenges encountered by those with IBD. Her focus centers on showcasing the significant role that Sperri plays in effectively managing Crohn's Disease. Dive in to uncover valuable customer testimonials and insights!

Crohn's Disease

Living with Crohn's Disease involves navigating a complex world of dietary restrictions and symptom management. It's a condition where the digestive tract becomes inflamed, leading to severe discomfort, especially during flare-ups. With this challenging disease, Sperri emerges as a promising solution. Developed with insights from gastroenterologists, Sperri offers a range of products specifically designed to be gentle on the digestive tract, making it an excellent option for those with Crohn's Disease.

Sperri: Designed with Expertise

Sperri isn't just another dietary product; it's a thoughtful creation born from the collaboration between nutrition experts and gastroenterologists. This synergy has led to Sperri’s meticulously formulated products to align with the delicate dietary needs of Crohn's patients.

Why Sperri Stands Out for Crohn's Patients

Sperri's products, including the Vanilla Maple and Strawberry flavors, are unique because of their low dietary fiber content, containing only 1 gram per bottle. This is particularly crucial during flare-ups when patients need gentle nutrition that doesn't aggravate symptoms. The low fiber content, along with carefully selected ingredients, ensures that the digestive system is not overwhelmed, aiding in easier digestion and effective symptom management. A study by Caio et al. suggests that during Crohn's Disease flare-ups, it's better to eat less fiber. This is because too much fiber during a flare-up can lead to more gut issues. Reducing fiber helps manage these symptoms during this period.

Tailored for Flare-ups and Remission Phases

Sperri's offerings are tailored for different phases of Crohn's Disease. During flare-ups, the Vanilla Maple and Strawberry options are ideal due to their minimal fiber content. It’s important to remember that, although reducing fiber intake can be beneficial during a flare-up, fiber is an essential nutrient that should not be avoided long-term. For the remission phase, the Chocolate flavor, with a slightly higher fiber content (3 grams per bottle) due to cocoa powder, is suitable. This approach allows for a controlled increase in fiber intake, vital for gut health, without overwhelming the digestive system. By balancing fiber intake according to the phase of Crohn's Disease, Sperri helps to ensure that the dietary needs are met while managing symptoms effectively.


Meal Replacements for Crohn's Patients

For Crohn's patients, maintaining a balanced diet can be challenging, especially when appetite is low. Due to its easy-to-consume nature, Sperri is an effective meal replacement. Being Canada's first plant-based meal replacement, it's an ideal alternative for those avoiding dairy. Each bottle of Sperri is a regulated product, containing all 24 essential vitamins and minerals, including fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E), B vitamins (notably Vitamin B12), iron, and calcium. These are particularly important for individuals with Crohn's Disease, who may face challenges in absorbing these nutrients due to their condition. The study by Caio et al. highlights that 65-75% of Crohn's Disease patients experience malnutrition, emphasizing the importance of proper nutritional management, which Sperri aims to provide.


For those battling Crohn's Disease, Sperri offers a scientifically backed, nutritionally balanced, and gastroenterologist-approved option. Its careful formulation caters to the unique needs of Crohn's patients, providing a dietary choice that's both gentle during flare-ups and beneficial in remission. By understanding the critical balance of nutrition in Crohn's management, Sperri stands out as a valuable ally in the journey towards better digestive health.
