In this experiment, we inquired about sugar alternatives and how they react with yeast. Candida is a type of yeast that resides in humans; if there is a Candida overgrowth it can cause bloating, stomach aches, skin issues, infections, etc. This was an interesting experiment for us because people are often told not to eat certain foods based on their sugar content, since candida yeast grows more rapidly when sugar is introduced. Therefore, through our experiment, we wanted to test how yeast reacts to sugar alternatives, in order to see if they would be effective substitutes for sugar.
