This acid from food links autism with gut bacteria

       Join Facebook group Autism: It’s Gut Stupid

  • Propionic acid is contained in many food preservatives. Calcium propionate is FDA approved food preservative widely used in wheat, bread, cheese, juices, as well as dried fruit.
  • Propionic acid in food represents only a small fraction of what is encountered in gut as a result of bacterial metabolism.
  • Absorbed prioinic acid once absorbed into the blood circulation crosses the blood brain barrier and enters the brain where it can exert its affects.
