Some people believe that that a form of yeast called candida albicans may cause autism.
They also think it may worsen some behaviour and health problems in people with autism.
They think that a yeast-free diet, alongside treatments to remove existing yeast concentrations in the body, can help resolve some of these problems.
We have been unable to identify any research evidence on the use of yeast-free diets as an intervention for people with autism.
