Digestive enzymes break down different food elements. There are amalyse, lipase (for fats), protease (for proteins), cellulase (for fibers), and others. If these food groups are broken down before going into the small intestine, then colon, they don't sit around and rot, creating putrifactive bacteria, a friendly environment for candida growth. In fact, candida is a by-product of the decomposition of foods. The more the food is digested properly, the less the candida will be forming. Many foods are broken down into sugars of different kinds, whether or not by our own manufacture of enzymes, or by ingested enzymes. Our brains and muscles wouldn't work without sugars, so they are important. What makes the candida worse is simple sugars we dump into our systems, directly feeding the candida. Foods (even vegetables) that are metabolized into various sugars for system functioning are different, as long as they are not heavy carbohydrate foods. A good reference to have on hand is the glycemic index chart of various foods showing their Sugar content. You can google it.
