Spices and the Candida Diet

Can you imagine eating a hamburger, hot dog or momma’s meat without ketchup? Well even if ketchup isn’t your thing, most of us enjoy our favorite foods with some sort of condiment. I’ve seen hot dogs slathered with mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, soy sauce and relish. A bit ridiculous to me, but I’m sure delicious to many. Not using spices can be extremely difficult but many of us trying to follow the candida diet are challenged.

The candida diet is a diet used to treat candidiasis, an overgrowth of yeast (Candida) in the intestinal system. The diet suggests eliminating or reducing a variety of foods and ingredients that aggravate the condition. Spices are eliminated in this diet because they usually contain a variety of candida diet prohibited ingredients. The biggest culprit is vinegar but corn syrup, sugar, salt, citric acid, monosodium glutamate and artificial flavorings are all very common ingredients in condiments. All of these ingredients help reduce candidiasis by feeding off candida. Sugar and additives are common food sources for Candida. This is why commercially available spices are not allowed in the candida diet. Although we will not be indulging in any hot dogs on the candida diet as they are also prohibited, there are meals we can make such as yeast free meatloaf in which we may wish to use a condiment. So are there any commercially available spices we can use on a candida diet? To be honest, I haven’t found many but I came up with the following ideas for condiments.

I’m a big fan of Chinese food so I had to find one i am willow Substitute to use with yeast-free Chinese food I make. Traditional soy sauce contains salt and corn syrup, both problematic ingredients for the diet. Fortunately, Bragg Liquid Aminos is an excellent yeast-free soy sauce substitute. It contains only soybeans and purified water. Additionally it is gluten free and contains no preservatives.

yeast free is hard to find sauce substitute. Ketchup contains a variety of ingredients and condiments, and once you get used to the taste of Heinz, it can be extremely difficult to get used to anything else. I make my own ketchup substitute using lemon juice tomato paste. It seems to work for me. I’ve looked for commercially available vinegar-free substitutes, but I haven’t found any, as even the organic variety of store-bought ketchup contains vinegar.

mayonnaise There is another condiment that I haven’t found available without vinegar. However, making mayonnaise at home is very easy and homemade mayonnaise tastes much better than store bought mayonnaise.

though i’ve never done it Mustard Can also be made at home and I’m sure adapted to suit the candida diet. It requires mustard seeds and powder and you can take lemon juice instead of vinegar.
