After reading this partial list of foods containing yeast products you now have a much better idea of the rather formidable task ahead of you. It is absolutely imperative while on the rotary diversification and avoidance diet that you carefully look at all labels on the canned and packaged food and consult the list above constantly, or you will continue to suffer needlessly the consequences of allergic reactions.

    I have a question about yeast allergies. I have been diagnosed with a yeast allergy and not candida. How are the restrictions for a yeast allergy different from a candida diet? Also, can you explain the connection between the recommendations to avoid chili peppers when you have a yeast allergy? I understand when foods are processed ingredients can be added, but what about fresh chili peppers? Are these restricted too? Would it matter if it was organic? If I grow it myself? Also, can you explain the connection between yogurt allergy and yeast? I understand foods fermented with yeast such as vinegar and alcohol products and all the foods with these ingredients and even cheeses due to the fermentation process, but yogurt is a bacterial fermentation? Is it the sweetener added to the yogurt? Does it matter if it is plain yogurt? Does it matter if it is organic? Homemade? Thank you for your time with this matter. This is a source of much confusion for me. I am trying to plan an elimination and rotation diet and have many, many, many major allergies and want to maximize the allowed foods without impacting my health. Thank you for your assistance. Sincerely, Linda Kelly
