I am on the candida diet and cannot consume yeast, dairy, or sugar but I need a friggin’ drink! What’s the least harmful beverage for me?
Beer is the only yeast containing alcoholic beverage.
All the alcohol beverages we drink are fermented by yeast but in all but beer the yeast has been removed so they are yeast free. Some of the mega sized brewers filter their beers to the point where no yeast is found in them as well. But many-if not most micro-craft beers do contain yeast.
Most wines are okay to drink as they have the yeast filter as well.
But to be safe drink the distilled alcohols such as: Vodka, Whiskey, Rum, etc.
Wiuth the exception of the bottle conditioned beers, all booze has had the yeast filtered out of them.
If you need a drink so badly, your diet shouldn’t be your biggest concern.
Lambic beers are yeast free. Spontaneous fermentation.
Any other alcoholic beverages are yeast free except regular beers.
I know from experience which alcohols still contain yeast, as I am allergic to yeast and on consuming I get rashes and my stomach starts protruding and swelling.
Being on the candida diet you need to stay away from anything fermented and anything with malt (not just yeast) so that includes wines and of course your whisky, bourbons etc. Of course beers and ciders are out, they have loads of yeast in them. Also keep in mind you are not to eat moldy foods so thats where the wine really lets you down as wine is made from grapes that are getting towards moldy. You may tolerate small amounts of red wine but you would have to try and see. It depends on the manufature.
Vodka and gin even though they are fermented are the best choice for you. Keep in mind doctors or candida books wont generally recommend you drinking at all as the liver has to get out all the toxins but if you feel you need a few drinks either vodka and gin mixed with soda and real lemon or diet softdrink will not cause you any probs.
Good luck with it all.
