Can you consume lactose free dairy on a Candida diet?

I’m already gluten free and only consume lactose free milk, yogurt and sour cream. Also some grass fed butter, ghee and hard cheeses. Can I continue those things on a Candida diet?

Whole milk typically contains about 12 to 13 grams of carbs per cup and those carbs are lactose sugar. This would cause a blood sugar spike and could feed Candida yeast.

Sour cream, hard cheeses, and grass fed butter are all low in sugars. You can find yogurts with hardly any carbs and sugars as well, which makes all of these foods ok on the Candida diet.

Depending upon the brand, lactose free milk contains about half of the carbs and sugars as whole milk, roughly 6 grams per cup. There's 4.2 grams of sugar in a level tsp. If you were diabetic, that 6 grams would trigger a blood sugar spike. In a healthy person, especially if consumed with other foods that contained fibers, which would help bind them, it might not.

I would personally be hesitant to add lactose free milk to my diet but you could try it and see how it goes. I would add those carbs into your daily totals as well.
