Hello and welcome to the forum.

A lot of people can’t understand why products containing gluten should not be eaten when treating a Candida infestation.

Maybe this will explain it a bit; a research-study which was published in the Lancelot Medical Journal reported that Candida albicans contains a particular protein which is almost identical to the structure of gluten protein. Candida infections in the intestines are not uncommon with Candida; if gluten is eaten during an infection it can trigger an immune system reaction to the gluten protein, this reaction can stimulate an allergic reaction to gluten and theoretically trigger celiac disease in susceptible people.

With this being said, if you’re certain that you will not experience any negative reaction, well then…. it’s your decision.
