    the second'that' is missing?

    Hello everybody!

    It is the increased consumption of green, leafy vegetables that typically accompany these types of diets may lead to increased nitrate intake.

    In my opinion, the above-mentioned sentence is a split sentence = it is / was ...... that/who, etc.

    I would supplement the sentence under discussion with another 'that'.

    It is the increased consumption of green, leafy vegetables that typically accompany these types of diets that may lead to increased nitrate intake.

    The meaning: The increased consumption of green, leafy vegetables that typically accompany these types of diets may lead to increased nitrate intake. The shortened meaning: The consumption may lead to increased nitrate intake.

    You are correct.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
