Science have shown that patients with CU lack the chemical ingredient SAM (S-Adenosyl-Methionin), that helps break down sulfat rich ingrediences in the food.
This could be true for those who are predisposed to Colits. However, I don't think it is the case for all people with Colitis. I don't have any issues with digesting sulfat rich foods.
