I got onto understanding gluten-free and found that although wheat free and a substitute for the foods people like that normally are made from wheat, that it is very high in carbohydrates.
If you look at the labels, it is high in starches, potato, rice, etc. etc. Now, we know that it increases the insulin in your body, but if that is not a concern to you, I realized it could cause other problems.
Candida or fungus or yeast is a normal part of the body, however, if it overgrows it can cause all sorts of problems.
What does this fungus thrive on – sugar.
What is carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are long chains of glucose molecules hooked together. And when the body digests the carbohydrates and breaks it down, it becomes glucose or sugar.
High amounts of carbohydrates become high amounts of sugar. And if you have any overgrowth of this type of yeast, it will help it multiply.
It is something to think about when reaching for the gluten-free foods.
Remember the food you eat can create health, but it can also cause health problems.
