    Hi Karen,
    Chewing gum is not allowed on the fast because of the additives and sweeteners in them (regular gum has sweeteners and sugar free gum has additives). Be Blessed!

    I have heard that honey is allowed on a Daniel Fast then I’ve heard from other sources that it is not allowed. Is it or is it not allowed?

    This is one of the “fine lines.” Unsweetened cocoa powder would be fine, But …I think it has a lot of caffeine, which is not allowed on the Daniel Fast.

    Hot water corn bread is fine, just check the ingredients list on all ingredients (baked not deep fried). Be Blessed!

    What are the things eatable during this fasting.

    August 17, 2015
  12. Yes, roasted plantain would be allowed. I suggest you look over this site to find the foods that are allowed. Too much info to add to this post. Everything you need is here. Also, you can go to my other Daniel Fast site and receive a Daniel Fast Kit.

  13. Correct, no honey or any other sweetener on the Daniel Fast.

    Be blessed.

  15. If you are talking about candy-type mints, no. They include sweeteners and/or chemicals. If you mean the herbal mints, then yes. They are allowed.

    Hi Susan, This is first Daniel fast. My question is potatoes aloud?

    January 5, 2016

    If we can eat fruit, then can we have 100% fruit juices with no additives. Example: POM (ingredients list: 100% pomegranate juice, no added sugar)? Thank you! God Bless!

    January 5, 2016
  20. No, the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water.

    “Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink” Daniel 1:12

    Pulse is food grown from seed . . . and water is water. LOL This is why it’s the only beverage on the fast.

    You could use unsweetened juice or unsweetened plant-based milk in a recipe.

    January 7, 2016
  21. Yes, potatoes and all vegetables are allowed on the Daniel Fast.

    Is whole wheat bread or wraps that contain corn starch okay to eat during the Daniel Fast?

    January 1, 2017
  27. No leavening is allowed on the fast, so bread is out. You can use whole grain wraps as long as the ingredients are free of chemicals or sweeteners. Corn starch is okay.
