Candida Cleanse

List of Foods to Limit


Updated May 16, 2014

  • Dairy Products: Candida is thought to impair the body's ability to digest fat, so dairy products may have to be restricted. How much dairy one consumes may also depend on individual reactions to cow's milk and cow's milk products such as cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, and butter.
  • People often temporarily eliminate the following dairy foods from the diet:
  • Cow's milk, including whole, skim, 2%, dry powdered milk
  • Most cheeses. Cheeses lower in lactose may be tolerated, such as Monterey Jack, sharp white cheddar, swiss, mozzarella, Colby, provolone, and dry curd cottage cheese.

Organic skim yogurt made with live bacteria may be beneficial for some people because of the beneficial bacteria it contains.
