A yeast-free diet, or anti-fungal diet, or candida diet, is a diet that involves avoiding foods that either contain yeast or foods that are conducive allowing yeasts to grow in the body. There are many different foods that are restricted on a yeast-free diet, especially simple sugars. Other foods that should be eliminated are all grains (breads, pastas, cookies, cakes, etc.), simple table sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, corn, mushrooms, peanuts, pistachios, alcohol, vinegars (except apple cider vinegar), coffee, teas, high sugar fruits and vegetables, high starch vegetables, and cheeses.
