    I was wondering if we can use sorghum, arrowroot, tapioca and amaranth flours in our baking in the first couple of weeks or after?? 🙂
    Can we use carob right away, also?

    Even though buckwheat has the word “wheat” as part of its name, it isn’t a wheat grain but rather a fruit seed. This is a food that, if you’re in the first stage of the diet you should treat it as a test food. Try a little of it and wait two full days, if you receive no reaction, then it should be alright to eat at least two to three times a week.

    Arrowroot is a tuber which contains 23% starch. I would advise against having it during the entire first stage, and then treat it as a test food.

    Tapioca is a starch, so I’d say no to that one.

    Amaranth is a grain, so it’s going to give the Candida a meal.

    Carob is one of those up in the air items. Treat it as a test food.

    Reports written on quinoa are amazingly mixed as far as the definition or description. As near as I can establish, quinoa is a whole-wheat grain – sort of. Since it’s a questionable food, personally I would choose to avoid it. To be safe, I would simply stick with buckwheat as a substitute for all of the ones you mentioned.

    My mother has been doing this diet for since July 2011 and she eats quinoa. She’s done amazingly well on the diet so I would say yes, especially since I eat it and have been getting signs of the candida die off. Yay for being tired all the time and having headaches and stomach pains. NOT! But at least I know it’s working!!!
