When attempting to control candida overgrowth, a yeast free diet is always part of the plan. However, not all yeast is active, one yeast product that can be had on the diet is yeast extract, the processes used in its production make it benign.
Glutamic acids in yeast extracts are produced from an acid-base fermentation cycle, only found in some yeasts, typically ones bred for use in baking, autolyzed yeast extract consists of concentrations of yeast cells that are allowed to die and break up, so that the yeasts’ digestive enzymes break their proteins down into simpler compounds.
The yeast in yeast extract is therefore non active and of no concern in controlling candida overgrowth, this compound is actually used in a neutral solution as a growth medium for fungi and bacteria which means it has no activity left in it if it did it would begin to grow and make any experiment useless.
Unfortunately Vegemite lovers are still out of luck because of the malt extract it contains feeds candida, but its worth checking out the ingredients section on similar products, some other yeast products are OK on a candida diet certain breads and crackers, by making the candida diet easier and achievable especially for families more people can get the great results that are possible, for more info see candidahouse.
I have been treating candida overgrowth with an achievable diet , live bacteria’s , and Homoeopathic’s, for over 10 years getting long term results, that do not require a long term diet, an e book is available.
