The most recommended protein rich foods are nuts, eggs, seeds, beans, poultry, yoghurt, cheese, and even chocolates. As per a study, a substantial amount of tryptophan which is an amino acid helpful in the buildup of proteins and development of immune cells that could foster a tolerant gut is present in these food elements.

Professor at the Washington University's School of Medicine in St Louis, Marco Colonna, also known as the Robert Rock Belliveau, while explaining the research said, “We established a link between one bacterial species – Lactobacillus Reuteri – that is a normal part of the gut microbiome and development of a population of cells that promote tolerance.”
