View Full Version : What are the sweeter fruits?
07-10-2005, 02:03 PM
I suppose the answer should be in the eating, but I was wondering what fruits are considered the "sweeter ones" to moderate in one's diet if concerned about candida? I ask because I'm hooked on apples, pears and nectarines and wonder if they would fall into this category? My guess is no, but I'd love some imput. I'm also guessing things like pineapple would fall under "sweeter".
Thanks for any advice,

The fruits you mentioned (possibly with the exception of the pears...but I'm almost certain they fall into the same category) are sub-acid. Pineapples are an acid fruit like oranges and lemons and I think kiwi too.
Sweet fruits are bananas, dates, raisins, dried apricots...any thing that packs a power punch of sweetness. Grapes are sub-acid as are apples, nectarines, plums...things that can be either sweet or tart depending on ripeness.
You're good with berries, the sub-acid fruits and acid fruits I'd think. I have candida issues as well (oral thrush mainly) but I still eat sweet fruits. For ME, it's eating too much of a combation of sweet fruits and nuts together and/or certain cooked foods that gives me flair-ups.

Do a search for "high glycemic" and "low glycemic" fruits. The ones you want are low glycemic.
I haven't followed your posts on this, so this may be redundant -- but there is a theory espoused by Doug Graham, Victoria Boutenko and others that candida overgrowth can be controlled by lowering fat intake (not permanently, just to get rid of the candida problem).
I, personally, have had success doing this. Anyway ... if you don't know about that and wish to, that's also available online by doing a search (no rudeness intended by suggesting you search!!, okay?).

THanks RawTruth and Rawkinlocks, I appreciate the info. My fat intake is pretty low, but I'll do some research. I did notice that the glycemic index of pears and apples is low (I am hypoglycemic so that's why I did the search). I also do like my fruit to not be ripe (I'm weird). I like things slightly unripe (really crunchy).
