Hi all. I'm trying to cut out sugar to battle the yeastie beasties. So what really qualifies as sugar? Is it just white sugar or does it also include maple syrup, agave nectar etc.? I don't know, do you? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> Feel free to include other yeast killing tips <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

When it comes to yeast - any kind of sweetener qualifies as sugar. Stevia is the only one you can use. They even recommend you don't eat fruit or dairy products (unless cultured). There is an interesting book called "The Body Ecology Diet" which gives specific dos and don'ts for yeast. They have a website which I think is <a href="http://www.bodyecologydiet.com" target="_blank">www.bodyecologydiet.com</a>.<br><br>
Cultured foods are beneficial - yogurt, kefir, natural sauerkraut, etc. or probiotic supplements.<br><br>
I think the Health and Healing forum has lots of yeast related threads that might give you more info.
