Should you consume maple syrup when you have candida? Does maple syrup increase candida outbursts? Well, this is what you are going to find out in this post.
Many people are going to think that maple syrup is a harmless sweetener; after all, it’s a natural food and only contains fructose!
But from my experience and other women’s experiences as well, maple syrup will increase your candida outbursts; in fact, it contains huge amounts of sugar, highly available ones which are going to increase your blood sugar levels while also increasing your candida colonies!
You need to understand that the best sugars for getting rid of candida are the ones found in starches, unprocessed ones, like whole grain products and potatoes, sweet potatoes as well, anything which taste sweets and doesn’t contain fiber should be avoided when you have candida, it’s going to increase it tremendously!
I’m sorry to say this, but you are probably wrong when it comes to maple syrup, you may think that it’s a health food, but it’s not, it doesn’t contain fiber, it doesn’t contain high amounts of antioxidants or anti-inflammatory compounds, and even worse, most brands nowadays offer highly refined and “enriched” maple syrup, which tends only contain pure sugar and pure fructose!
This is the reason why I always advise my readers to avoid maple syrup whenever they have candida.
Now, what about maple syrup causing candida?
The answer is yes and no!
I’m sorry if I’m confusing you here, but this is the reality, most researchers don’t know whether maple syrup causes candida or not, what we know now is that candida colonies seem to increase in number and in strength whenever a person consumes high amounts of highly processed foods and sugar.
So, if you ask me, yes, maple syrup, if consumed on a daily basis, in high amounts, is going to cause candida.
What’s the best sweetener to use if you are suffering from candida?
Well, you can use stevia or xylitol but personally, I don’t trust them, and I only prefer to use no sweeteners.
