Yeast-Free Diet Safe with Modifications

What is a Yeast-Free Diet?

A yeast-free diet removes all sources of yeast. It is similar to a Low-Histamine Diet in that it is also a fresh foods diet. For example, freshly baked homemade muffins are ok, but store-bought, packaged muffins are off-limits. This diet excludes all yeast-breads and sourdough breads, and fermented foods like lacto-fermented vegetables and kombucha too. 

The yeast-free diet excludes:

  • All processed foods
  • Baker's yeast
  • Nutritional yeast
  • All vinegars, EXCEPT raw apple cider vinegar and raw coconut vinegar
  • Fermented foods
  • Soy sauce, tamari, and coconut aminos
  • Miso, tofu, and tempeh
  • Prepared sauces and dressings that have vinegar
  • Ketchup
  • Dried fruits
  • Olives
  • Mushrooms
  • Aged cheeses
  • Citric acid
  • Alcohol, especially wine and beer
