    Does anyone know whether Rhubard is an acceptable fruit on the candida diet, it certainly has a bitter raste rather then a sweet taste so is it low in sugar?

    Hi Jamesb,

    Rhubarb is a strange one. In Britain it’s classed as a vegetable and in the US a fruit (something to do with tax I think). It’s really versatile; you can treat it like a fruit and sweeten it with a little stevia or treat it like a veg (I like to use it to make a nice sour curry).

    Anyway here are the nutritional stats for a 100g serving (I’ve also included stats for courgette/zucchini for comparison):

    Rhubarb

    Hope this helps.
