the pumpkin has 4 grams of natural sugars in one can
I believe that’s 4 grams in one serving isn’t it, at least that’s what most brands contain But even if it’s 4 grams per serving, considering that there are approximately 5 servings of pumpkin in 1.25 cans (which the recipe calls for), and you get 9 servings/ muffins after the other ingredients are added, you wouldn’t even receive one whole gram of sugar per muffin. Not enough to make even a tiny amount of difference in the infestation.

However, pumpkin is a member of the squash family which means it a form of starch which can feed the Candida, in an indirect way, which is probably also why it isn’t on the website’s allowed foods list, although pumpkin seeds are but shouldn’t be.
This is why you probably received a reaction, M. On the other hand, as you wrote, some people will have a reaction to pumpkin, some won’t, so all one can do is to test it … slowly and in very small amounts before learning whether or not it’s going to be a stimulus for the infestation.
