Are guavas and malanga okay to have on the Candida diet?

by Cassandra

I can't tolerate any grains and have to to avoid most fruits. I am able to tolerate guavas and malanga (yautia) in moderation but I wonder if they can feed candida.

The USDA provides the following nutrition information for 1 cup (165g) of guava.

Calories: 112
Fat: 1.6g
Sodium: 3.3mg
Carbohydrates: 23.6g
Fiber: 8.9g
Sugars: 14.7g
Protein: 4.2g
Vitamin C: 376mg
Folate: 81mcg
Potassium: 688mg

A 1 cup serving of malanga contains approximately:

132 calories
.5 grams of fat
32 grams of carbohydrates
.7 grams of sugar
9 grams of fiber
3 grams of protein

Based on the amount of carbs in each of these foods, yes it is possible they will feed Candida. Especially the guava which has 14.7 grams of natural sugar. However, you can't cut off all carbs on the Candida diet because the red and white blood cells need some daily carbs to function correctly and those white blood cells are part of your immune system. Starving them will lower immune function which can also allow any sort of yeast infection to get out of control. We suggest you consume around 60 grams of carbs daily to maintain red and white blood cell function. Just add these carbs into your daily total.

Any other questions let us know.
