Is Yacon Syrup Good For Candida
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements. Thanks forchecking out my tutorial. We're going to do a tutorial on Yacon syrup. Yacon syrup basicallyis syrup that is derived from the yacon plant that grows in the Andes mountain regions,which is Peru like South America. It was used a lot by the Incas quite a long time ago.The process of making yacon syrup is similar to molasses. I think they dehydrate it orthicken up the syrup by dehydration methods. Even though this kind of a natural occurringsugar tends to have no real effect on blood sugar levels in terms of diabetes becausediabetics in South America are known to eat
the yacon leaves and the yacon syrup. It doescontain about 30 to 35 percent fructose, so it's quite high in natural sugars. Not onlythat, about 50 percent of yacon syrup is fructooligosaccharides, so these are naturally occurring sugars. Alittle bit like you're going to find in other types of tubers and roots. Jerusalem artichoke,for example, contains a lot of inulin, which is also a fructooligosaccharide.I want you to be very careful with things like yacon syrup, because they still are sugarsand they're no good for Candida. They're definitely no good for people with SIBO, with bacterialovergrowth and microbial imbalances in their gut. I've had too many bad reports of peopletrying to switch over from sweetening agents
and sugars into yacon syrup and agave syrupand these kind of things and get massive aggravations, a lot of gas and fermentation, so my takeon it is to avoid this kind of stuff. I think it's perfectly okay to eat it whenyou've got a good balance in the digestive system like I have. But if you haven't andyou get a lot of gas and bloating and you know you've got a yeast infection or leakygut, be very careful with yacon syrup.

Can I Eat Weetbix On The Candida Diet
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. Today we're goingto talk about Weetabix. If you live in the States or in Europe, you may actually seethis in your supermarket. It's a breakfast cereal that's actually made in Australia bythe Sanitarium Health Food Company. Very nice people.Weetabix basically are little processed blocks of wheat high in fiber, tastes like cardboard.Some people call them the chicken nuggets for breakfast because chicken nuggets tastelike crap. I don't know why people eat them. No flavor. Bland stuff. Weetabix don't havemuch flavor about them and my concern with
these kinds of cereals is that people putlots of sugar on top, lots of honey on top or agave nectar or some kind of sweet stuff.Because a lot of people want something that tastes nice. Remember, I've said it beforewhen people talk about nice taste, they're usually talking about sugar and that's theproblem, so don't put teaspoons of sugar all over the Weetabix.Weetabix only contains I think about three or four grams of sugar per hundred grams,so it's rated as one of the healthiest breakfast cereals around. I wouldn't rate it quite ashigh as rolled oats. Whole oats are my favorite. I think oats are fantastic cooked in water.As you put a couple of raisins in there, I
find them to be perfectly good to eat. They'requite satisfying. But the fiber content of Weetabix is quite high, so it is a very goodbreakfast to eat. Your choice of what you're going to put withit if you've got a yeast infection, it's a tough decision. Not a good idea to put lotsof sweetening agents on top of it. But, hey, you might get away with it. Some people can.Some people can't. Is Weetabix healthy? I think it is healthy. I think it's definitelya better choice than a lot of those breakfast cereals that are laden with sugar. You lookat these really colorful ones with green colors and purple colors. You shouldn't be eatingstuff with really weird colors anyway unless
it's a vegetable. Just be careful.Weetabix is a good choice. Soy milk I find is good to put on it. Some people say thatsoy is really toxic for health. Soy has become very maligned like gluten. These foods havenow become taboo for many people, but I don't have a problem with soy milk as long as it'snot genetically modified. I find it perfectly okay. Not a good idea maybe for younger people,but for people 30, 40 upwards, I think soy is perfectly fine to have a cup of that inthe morning with Weetabix. What I like about Weetabix is that they'renice square blocks. You can choose how much you want. It's easy to have. Oats take time.It takes a few minutes to cook up. So for
convenience sake, it is a good breakfast.Rice milk or almond milk or oat milk or other alternatives. Some people I know even havecoconut with their Weetabix. There are options. And other people in winter just pour boilingwater on top of it, which makes them dissolve quite quickly.They've been around since the 1920s. They're very popular in New Zealand and Australiaand I think they've made their way up to the States, so it is a good choice for breakfastand it does contain gluten. So if you're one of these people with a gluten phobia, thenplease don't eat it. But I can tell you now, most people can tolerate gluten to a degree.Check it out. That's called Weetabix. Thanks
for tuning in.
