No. 1 All fruit, because the candida in your body thrives on all types of sugars, especially from fruit,that will feed the candida by fermentation in the digestive track. No matter the degree of ripeness or over ripeness of the fruit, Fermentation will take place, building sugars. No. 2 All foods including deli foods, that have any perservitaves or chemicals of any kind in them.
