All options other than B & E can e eliminated jus bcz of Sub Verb Agreement.. B - wordy&awkward, So E is my take..

One thing that is wrong in D: "...that the consumption of any foods reverse hardening of the arteries..."
Here consumption is the singular subject for the verb reverse. So reverse is wrong here, it should be reverseS.

Moreover, the sentence " Although not proved that the consumption of any foods reverse hardening of the arteries" doesn't sound good as what is "not proved" is not clear by placing it at the starting of the sentence.

Hope this helps!

Both any and particular are singular qualifiers qualifying 'foods'. E corrects this anomaly, hence E.

A. The consumption is singular therefore requires "reverses". For the same reason, eliminate C and D.
B. It is the consumption and not the food itself that might reverse the hardening of arteries. Eliminate B.

Answer: E

(A) Despite no proof that the consumption of any particular foods reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods could
I see a subject verb agreement issue here. consumption and reverse
(B) Despite no foods having been proved to reverse hardening of the arteries when consumed, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can
having been is awkward and unecessary
(C) Although the consumption of no particular foods have been proved to reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that to refrain from eating certain foods could
we have few errors here, among them we spot the subject verb agreement (consumption-have been)
(D) Although not proved that the consumption of any foods reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can
subject verb agreement once again
(E) Although it has not been proved that the consumption of any particular food will reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can
The main issue has been fixed, looks good

[Reveal] Spoiler:
OA E

A is incorrect since verb "reverse" lacks "s". The same mistake with C and D

This is mainly an SV play.

(A) Despite no proof that the consumption of any particular foods reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods could --SV error
(B) Despite no foods having been proved to reverse hardening of the arteries when consumed, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can – 'when consumed' may mean that they are effective when consumed and perhaps not after.
(C) Although the consumption of no particular foods have been proved to reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that to refrain from eating certain foods could--- SV error
(D) Although not proved that the consumption of any foods reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can – SV error
(E) Although it has not been proved that the consumption of any particular food will reverse hardening of the arteries, studies indicate that refraining from eating certain foods can ---- ok – no SV error or meaning error.
