IMO eating high protein foods such as salmon is better than protein supplements. Salmon also contains minerals and essential omega-3s.
But if you are going to try a protein supplement then l-glutamine might be good for IBDers. When taken with food it is a bodybuilding supplement that builds muscle. When taken on an empty stomach the body uses glutamine to repair intestinal tissue. Excellent for UCers.
