Where to Buy Candida Diet Foods , Yeast Free Bread, Crackers, & Snacks

Updated on August 16, 2010

If you have been diagnosed with a yeast infection or 'Candida', you probably know that the best yeast infection cure is a change in diet. This article outlines some of my favorite yeast-free bread, all-purpose yeast-free baking mix, and other snacks that are safe for people suffering from an overgrowth of candida albicans.

My story: When I was 16, I was diagnosed with a systemic yeast infection which meant that I had superfluous amounts of candida albicans (yeast) throughout my entire body (bloodstream, organs, intestines). From time to time, I go on a strict yeast-free diet in order to clear up my symptoms as they occur.

Here are some yeast free foods online that you can use to bring some variety and added nutrition to your candida or yeast-free diet!

Buy Yeast Free Bread Online

While you can get many yeast free food items at your local health food store, I find that purchasing via is best for saving money, not to mention it is really convenient to have grocery items arrive at your door. 

Ener-G Foods Yeast-Free Brown Rice Loaf

  • Yeast free
  • Gluten free
  • Casein free
  • Dairy free
  • Main ingredients: Brown & White Rice flour
This yeast-free bread is perfect for those on candida diets (yeast-free diets), gluten-free diets, wheat-free, dairy-free, etc.  You can't expect it to taste like an unhealthy bread loaf, but for me, personally, it is nice to have for sandwiches or breakfast. I toast mine and use clarified butter.  Each slice of bread has 120 calories and the full list of ingredients can be located on the Ener-G Foods Yeast-Free Brown Rice Loaf page.  

Chebe Bread All-Purpose Mix

  • Yeast-Free
  • Gluten-Free
  • Casein-Free
  • Dairy-Free
  • Main Ingredient: Tapioca

This product is one of my favorite things to use when making baked goods on my yeast-free, sugar-free diet. The back of the package has all sorts of recipes for rolls, tortillas, pancakes, etc.

I LOVE making tortillas and they taste really good drenched in clarified butter. I then wrap them around scrambled eggs for a healthy yeast-free breakfast wrap.

The All-Purpose mix can be stored for about a week after you make it (or frozen for a longer period of time), so it's convenient to make up all at once and then divide into portions as needed. All you do is add water and egg (some recipes do not need egg) and then cook according to the recipes on the back of the package. If you can handle milk, you can use that in place of the water, but I prefer to use water in my recipes.

Yeast-Free Pizza Crust: Another favorite of mine is to make pizza crust. While I do not eat dairy while on my candida diet, I use olive oil, fresh basil, garlic and oregano, sautee spinach and artichokes and bake. It's really good and is surprisingly good for you, too!

Yeast-Free Crackers - Brown Rice Snaps, Onion Garlic

These gluten-free, yeast-free crackers are a great addition to any restrictive candida diet. Used in moderation, they are safe for use every once in a while.

These yeast-free crackers have just 5 ingredients:

  • Brown Rice flour
  • dehydrated onion
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt

You can't get more simple and tasty as that! This company also has some different flavors that I have yet to try, including:

  • Tamari Sesame
  • Plain
  • Cheddar
  • Vegetable
With a bunch of choices, there is a flavor for everyone. Again, I like the Onion & Garlic flavor with a slice of turkey and cucumber piled on top for a really crunchy treat.

Raw Almonds

In moderation, raw, unprocessed almonds are a great addition to any yeast-free diet.

Not only are they tasty, but they're also full of protein and calcium - did you know that 20-25 almonds have as much calcium as 1/4 cup of milk?

Almond Snack Recipe: I buy mine unprocessed and then coat in olive oil and sprinkle on sea salts and herbs (garlic, greek seasoning blend, etc.) and then bake for a few minutes.

When the night-time munchies hit, I grab a handful and enjoy!

Almonds can be expensive, but there are definitely some great deals online. Check out this article on where to buy organic almonds online.

Yeast Free Recipes - Candida Diet Recipes

I write quite a few healthy eating articles as I try to remain healthy even when I'm not on the candida diet full-time. Here are a few recipes that I've authored that will work out perfectly for someone partaking in a yeast-free diet.

      It is getting so much easier now days to buy foods for the candida diet. Our Giant Eagle has a lot of Organic foods that work great on the candida diet.

      It sounds like you have had a time with candida... me too! I was not diagnosed early like you were but candida has caused me many, many problems. Check out my blog..

      I use my blog like a diary, if it is happening I blog about it.

      Rena - That's a tough question, but not impossible. :)

      Here are some ideas for college students on candida diets:

      Buy or prepare your own veggie sticks. To make your own (more cost effective) use clean glass jars, fill half way with spring water and insert celery sticks and carrot sticks. They last so much longer when immersed in water and are a lot crunchier, too.

      Buy some already hard boiled eggs at the grocery store - those are quick and easy candida snacks. Or, you could make your own with fresh organic eggs if you use a friend's kitchen every few days.

      All-natural (organic, if possible) deli meats require little space and will keep well in a small fridge, as well.

      All-natural canned tuna is great, too. Simply toss with a bit of lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil in place of mayo. Eat with the celery sticks. You can buy lemon juice in plastic lemon shaped containers that will last for a while in the fridge. You can also add the juice it to bottled water for a refreshing, detoxifying drink.

      Hummus is great with sliced cucumbers, or with veggie sticks and comes in a convenient package to store in the fridge. It's also great with sliced turkey.

      You could also buy bags of plain or salted organic popcorn, which depending on what your doctor says, may be ok in moderation.

      To utilize your microwave, try the following:

      Google ideas for cooking eggs in the microwave.

      You can also steam fish in the microwave, combine with steamed veggies for a great meal. (For convenience, buy frozen "steamable" organic veggies that you can steam right in the bag)

      Hope these help - good luck!!

      What would you suggest for a college student living in a dorm with no kitchen and a small fridge/freezer and microwave

      Kristen - it depends on what list you look at. Some practitioners will say it is ok, as mine does. They key is moderation and I only eat it 2=3 times a week. The mix can be prepared ahead of time and frozen, which is really convenient. Obviously if you eat it with every meal you will most likely run into issues.

      Tapioca is on the list of foods not to eat with candida so the bread mix that you're suggesting isn't accurate......unfortunatley.

      May I add also that it is not easy to come up with an array of recipes for a candida diet, particularly since the diet calls for simple recipes with limited number of ingredients. Candida is prevented from multiplying by good bacteria that are also found in the body. If the growth of candida is not checked, it can result in a variety of health complications due to the intolerance of the yeast. In such cases, it would be best for the sufferer to go on a candida-free diet for around six weeks in order to give time to the body to start re-functioning normally.

      You're welcome, fastfreta! Good luck to you. I will be posting some more yeast-free recipes as time allows. I always go back on the candida diet after the holidays to improve my immune system and get back on track. I try to watch my intake of fermented foods during the rest of the year, but I absolutely love vinegar and wine (HUGE no-nos for candida, as you know haha) !
