Pop corn is okay! Not the microwavable pack with lousy butter though. Home made popcorn with freshly melted butter! Yummy! I've been getting weight back on it.
Still keep on the watch 'cause some people are allergic to it-
Not a problem, Jhan. I respect you, we simply have a minor difference of opinion. I could list any number of websites that cite corn as being a problem for people fighting candida. Beyond any question we know that corn is a major source of carbohydrates. I am sure that you are familiar with corn syrup and corn sweeeteners. Corn syrup is a very common cane Sugar substitute, and obviously, is made from corn. When you can make an actual sugar syrup from a product I think you should use caution before including it in a candida diet. I had a bad candida flare up after consuming a bag of popcorn. Personally, I am not going to repeat that experience. Each to their own. As always, my opinions are merely my own. I have no desire to influence the behavior of anyone.
Okay, okay. I have to add my two cents, I guess, which would be in agreement with the consensus here.
Like Zapp said about sugar, here's another way to think of it. Corn can and is processed to extract the Sugar which is dextrose. Also, there's this:
A naturepath told me a long time ago that popcorn was one of the worst things you can eat if you have candidiasis because the husks get stuck in the folds or creases of the intestinal wall/lining and those husks can house or hold candida. Seems to make sense to me.
I know... the snack issue gets to be overwhelming sometimes.
