Does Bone Ami Feed Yeast?
« on: May 22, 2007, 06:42:47 AM »
Hi all. Maybe one of the Tallents or Rebekah knows this. Is the sugar alcohol that is contained in Bone Ami going to feed yeast? My husband is on a candida diet but needs a good calcium supplement. I just want to make sure the xylitol won't mess things up for him. Thanks.

I was checking this out online and read that xylitol doesn't promote yeast.  I don't really understand chemistry and how sugars are made up molecularly, but here are a couple of the websites I came across:

Does xylitol promote growth of Candida albacans yeast?

Yeast grow well on 6 carbon molecule sugars but do not grow on 5 carbon molecules like xylitol. If xylitol is used consistently over a moderate period of time, yeast colonies tend to decline.

Xylitol has been shown to be effective in inhibiting Candida Albicans, a serious systemic yeast problem, and other harmful gut bacteria including H. Pylori, implicated in periodontal disease, bad breath, gastric and duodenal ulcers, and even stomach cancer.
