Yogurt and Candida

I read on this site that for candida all simple sugars must be avoid, including lactose (milk sugar). What about yogurt (the plain unsweeted kind)? Is that OK to eat when one is fighting candida? I've read that there is no lactose in yogurt since it is converted to lactic acid by the bacteria, which is a good thing for fighting candida.

Human taste buds are extraordinarily sensitive to simple sugars. If a food contains simple sugar, it will taste sweet if your taste buds are working. Of course they can also be fooled by artificial sweeteners, but on the other hand those are also to be avoided by anyone interested in remaining in good health. As to unsweetened yogurt and candida - excellent choice, expecially if it is fortified with acidophilus.
