Diet for Blood Type B

Posted on Updated on

French cheeses

Foods that are MOST BENEFICIAL to blood type B’s are;

Meats and other Animal Products;

Lamb, mutton, venison, rabbit, eggs (as these may help to boost the immune system)


Deep ocean and white fish such as; Mackerel, Monkfish, Orange Roughy, Red Snapper, Rainbow Trout, Salmon, Sardines, Sea Trout, Tuna


Cottage cheese, Fetta, Tasty cheese, Camembert, Brie, Goats cheese and milk, Kefir, Mozzarella, Ricotta, Milk, Yoghurt

Type B is the only blood type that can fully enjoy a variety of dairy foods. That’s because the primary sugar in the Type B antigen is D-galactosamine, which is the same sugar present in milk. However, if lactose intolerance is an issue, this does not apply, you will still be unable to digest dairy.


Green leafy vegetables (These vegetables contain magnesium, which is an important antiviral agent to help Type Bs fight off viruses and autoimmune diseases). Beetroot and beetroot tops, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, capsicum, carrots, cauliflower, eggplant, kale, Lima beans, Shiitake mushroom, mustard greens, parsley, parsnips,
Jalapeno peppers and Sweet potatoes are also all beneficial for a B blood type.


Pineapples, pawpaw and papaya, as they contain enzymes that help Type Bs to digest their food more easily.

Also beneficial are; Bananas, cranberries, grapes and plums






Millet, Oatmeal, and Oat Bran flour, Puffed Rice, Rice and Rice flour, Spelt


Brown rice bread, Essene bread, Millet and Rice Cakes


Warming spices such as; Ginger, horseradish, curry and cayenne pepper


Ginger, peppermint, raspberry leaf, rose hips, sage, green teas (Generally Bs don’t gain huge benefits from most herbal teas.)

Ginseng (as it is seems to have a positive effect on the nervous system.)

Liquorice (as it has antiviral properties.)

Foods that are allowed, but not necessarily helpful to B’s;


Beef, pheasant, turkey and veal


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


All kinds except those listed as not allowed. (Most nuts and seeds are not advisable for Type Bs. They contain lectins that interfere with Type B insulin production)


All kinds except those listed as not allowed


Gluten Free (unless it contains corn)


All kinds except those listed as not allowed

Foods that are NOT allowed,


Chicken, cornish hens, duck, goose, partridge, quail, pork

Chicken, and to some degree the other meats, contains a Blood Type B agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders. It can also be a problem for those wanting to lose weight.


All shellfish (crab, shrimp, lobster, mussels, oysters, crayfish, clam, etc), anchovy, barracuda, beluga, eel, frog, lox, octopus, sea bass, snail, striped bass, turtle, yellowtail These seafood are poorly digested by Type Bs and contain lectins that are disruptive and may cause stress to the Type B system.


Blue cheese, Ice cream, cheese sticks or processed cheese.


Tomatoes as they contain a lectin that irritates the stomach lining of B’  bpos.

Corn as it contains insulin- and metabolism-disrupting lectins for B’s

Olives as the mould in olives may trigger an allergic reaction.

Artichoke, avocado, corn, pumpkin, radishes, sprouts, tempeh, tofu,


Coconuts, persimmons, pomegranates, prickly pear, rhubarb, starfruit as they may interfere with your digestive system.


Canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, sesame, sunflower (The oils not allowed contain lectins that are damaging to the Type B digestive tract.)


Cashew, Hazelnut, Pinenut, Pistachio, Peanuts (including peanut butter), Poppy seeds,
Pumpkin seeds, Sesame seeds and sesame paste (tahini), Sunflower seeds


Wheat of all kinds; bran, bulgur, durum, whole wheat, white, shredded wheat, cream of wheat or any products such as flour, bread, pasta and noodles made with these grain products. This is because wheat reduces insulin efficiency and failure to stimulate fat “burning” in B types.

Rye and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these grain products Rye contains a lectin that settles in the vascular system causing blood disorders and potentially strokes.

Buckwheat, corn (cornflakes, cornmeal) and any products such as flour, bread and noodles made with these grain products (These contribute to a sluggish metabolism, insulin irregularity, fluid retention and fatigue.)

Amaranth, barley, kasha, seven-grain, wild rice, couscous


Bagels, muffins (corn and bran), bread (multi-grain rye, whole wheat), soba noodles, wild rice, couscous


Barley malt sweeteners, corn syrup, cornstarch, cornflour, cinnamon (as sweet herbs tend to be stomach irritants to the B types)

Allspice, Almond extract, Gelatin, Pepper (black and white) and tapioca.


Tomato sauce (ketchup)


Aloe, corn silk, fenugreek, gentian, goldenseal, hops, linden, mullein, red clover, rhubarb, senna, shepherd’s purse, skullcap

Alcoholic spirits, Soda water, Soft drink
