Bread and candida

I've heard many people say that bread is bad for candida. They say that the grains are hard to digest and that the yeast makes candida grow.

I can see how the yeast part would be true, but what about the part on grains? And if it's just because of yeast, how many breads out there are made without yeast?

Whether it's a whole grain or only part of a grain, the starch content of the grain still gets digested into sugar. It might take a bit longer to digest the whole grain to release the starch content, but it gets released and digested. The digestion process for carbohydrates is fairly direct - from carbohydrates to disaccharides to glucose. To the candida, it simply doesn't matter if the glucose originated as a whole grain or a refined grain. Yum.

Im pretty sure bread is bad for candida since bread is made of yeast and candida is what?... a yeast overgrowth! There are breads made without yeast called unleavened bread (eg tortillas) which should be ok. If you have anymore of these questions just google the candida diet, there are whole websites dedicated to it.

Yes... yeast in foods does aggravate candida, but the main reason bread is avoided in an anti-candida diet is because of the starch, like strato said. It just turns into sugar in your bloodstream, so it really doesn't matter if it's yeasted or not. It's the same reason that starchy vegetables such as potatoes, corn, carrots etc must be avoided as well.

So if you really want to follow such a diet (it's not easy) check out:
