    Can you eat plantain on the candida diet?

    Thanks!

    I’d say probably not since it’s 15% sugar and 15% starch, with relatively little fibre (2%). Maybe something you could add later on as a test item in phase 1 or in phase 2. It’s worth checking this site when you want to know the nutritional profile of a food http://nutritiondata.self.com/

    It contains 27g of sugar for a whole medium plantain which is way too much. Try to limit your daily sugar to 25g if possible.

    Ok great thanks for the info and the website link! I am at stage 3 at the moment… I could always test it out.

    Thanks Raster. I could let’s say eat 1/2 or 1 of these (daily) on occasions maybe?

    Plantains and bananas are one of the highest sugar fruits that there is. If possible, consider alternatives such as green apple or blueberries which have much less sugar per serving size. Canteloupes contain molds and pineapple is also high in sugar. I would only eat it as a test food item and very sparingly.

    If you want to feed candida and go back to where you were when you started, eating a banana everyday could do this…

    I’ve seen you mention blueberries, but what about other berries? As far as I remember the raspberries I last bought were 4% sugar, which makes an 11% sugar Granny Smith look like a candida feast. I really still don’t get why some foods containing sugar are allowed while others containing less aren’t. Goat’s cheese, for instance, is about 1% sugar. The argument for 6% sugar Greek yoghurt is that it’ll do more good than bad, but if you ate some goat’s cheese with a glass of kefir, wouldn’t it balance in the same way? Ultimately, it all depends on your reactions, but I’d like to understand the reasons behind these choices.
