Should you eat fermented foods on an anti-candida diet? If you follow the current recommendations for the diet, you’ll see that advice about whether or not to eat fermented foods on an anti-candida diet has changed over the years.
When I first began to study the anti-candida diet back in 1999 (!!!), the advice was clear: NO fermented foods of any kind. But, as more and more people were diagnosed and practitioners learned more and more about candida albicans and how it works in the body, recommendations changed over the years. Nowadays, you’ll find people who suggest that some fermented foods can even be critical to beating the yeast.
Here’s my take on the topic, and how I incorporated certain fermented foods into my diet.
