Also I saw some coconunt nectar granules as a sugar alternative. Is this ok?
Stevia has a GI (Glycemic Index) is rated at zero. This is the best thing to use for the Candida diet :D. The coconut nectar is a nectar and the GI rated as a 35. So personally I would not use this product. As for the stevita I would have to do more research because the website does not have enough information. Great job being creative though. Regular Stevia I feel is the safest way to go :D.
You want to stay away from items that are high in GI. This is because if the GI is high it means the carbohydrates ability to raise blood sugar level is high, which is not good since Candida eats sugar. For more info about GI you can visit this website. http://www.glycemicindex.com/about.php
Hope this helps, Lauren
