    I was reading recently that sorghum is a gluten free grain. Does anyone know if it is ok for any stage of the candida diet? I’m hesitant to try it because its not listed on the site that I can see. Also, its described as tasting sweet which makes me think it might not be good. But its readily available in my city while quinoa and amaranth are not.

    Anyone have any info?

    Thanks.

    It’s also called millet and do a search for it on the forum (upper right hand corner). I believe its OK for you if you have no bad symptoms following eating it.

    I’ve been confused about the difference between sorghum and millet flour. Aren’t they different varieties of grasses? Furthermore, a google search revealed that sorghum contains 70% starch. Is it OK for the diet? Anyone used it for baking?

    I love millet I think it tastes great! I boil it in water as per instructions on the packet, then lightly saute some veggies aside (I do aubergines, onions and courgettes but you can use whatever you like). When the millet is ready I pour it in the wok with the vegetables, stir it well, put the whole thing in a baking pan and put it in the oven for 20 mins. It’s really easy and lasts for up to 5 days in the fridge, so it’s good if you (like me) don’t have much time to cook 🙂

    @misscandida,

    Are you talking about millet flour or millet groats?

    That’s what I thought. I sometimes have the groats myself.

    I’m more concerned with Sorghum flour though. As far as I’m aware, sorghum and millet are not exactly the same.

    I take back my statement; it seems that millet and sorghum are slightly different, however they look the same and both are gluten free grass grains.

    Hopefully able can chime in and make sure that both are fine on the diet as well.

    Sorghum is a form of grass related to the sugar cane plant. I think I would leave it alone if possible.

    Millet is a small, round grain food. If you have a choice, I would stick with millet or some other grain source — for the second phase of the diet only.
