Candida Albicans and
Food Additives

One component of the Candida diet is to try to avoid the harmful food additives in the typical Standard American Diet (SAD).

If you are suffering from a Candida albicans overgrowth, you need to do everything you can to strengthen your body's immunity.

Harmful Food Additives

There are many harmful ingredients that lower your immunity and make it harder to fight off the Candida. 

You need to do everything you can do to avoid these food additives. The best way to do that is to read the labels of everything you consume.  Also try to avoid eating anything from a bag, box or can.

Eat the best food that you can afford - fresh, organic vegetablesfree range chickens, free range eggs, and grass fed beef. These foods do not contain any of these harmful food additives.

Harmful Food Additives:

  • Any Ingredient containing Aluminum
  • Any Ingredient that is Bromated
  • Any Ingredient that is Hydrogenated
  • Artificial Color
  • FD&C Blue #1
  • FD&C Blue #2
  • FD&C Red #3
  • FD&C Yellow #6
  • Artificial Flavors
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Acesulfame-K
  • Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet)
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Sodium Saccharin (Sweet'N Low)
  • Sucralose (Splenda, Altern)
  • BHA - Butylated Hydroxyanisole
  • BHT - Butylated Hydroxytoluene
  • DEA - Diethanolamine

  • Sodium Carrageenan
  • Sodium Nitrate

Make sure to read the labels of the food you buy. The manufacturers are good at hiding ingredients to make you think you are buying something healthy.

Do not be fooled! The spices they list may not be spices at all. There is a long list of man-made chemicals that they can legally call spices.

Think about it... when they add oregano and other spices to pasta sauce, they brag about it. They are all listed in the ingredients. But when they list "spices" - what exactly is that?

Hidden Food Additives - Sugar

They are also good at hiding sugar by putting many different types of sugar in the product. I once saw an item with five different types of sugar in it!

Different names for sugar:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Sugar
  • Sucrose
  • Fructose
  • Glucose
  • Honey
  • Anything sweetened with fruit juice
  • Evaporated Cane Syrup
  • Cane sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • Molasses
  • Brown rice syrup
  • Lactose
  • Maltodextrin
  • Dextrose
  • Beet sugar
  • Corn sugar
  • Corn syrup
  • Date sugar
  • Galactose
  • Glycogen
  • Ice milk
  • Maltose
  • Mannitol
  • Monosaccharides
  • Polysaccharides
  • Sorbitol
  • Succanat
  • Turbinado Sugar
  • White grape juice

Instead of all of these different types of sugar, look for products that contain Candida safe sweeteners like Xylitol, Stevia and Lakanto.
