Yogurt is great for candida. Plain, of course, and goat’s is even better than cow’s, so you’re on the right track. It’s my list of foods I can eat from my doctor. It’s also highly recommended by Jordan Rubin, who I am a big fan of (he had severed candida and a ton of other illnesses that almost killed him). However, before I answered I checked this website to see if it was on their recommended list and it is. I copied and pasted their comments below.
Live yogurt cultures (or probiotics) help your gut to repopulate itself with good bacteria.
The live bacteria in the yogurt will crowd out the Candida yeast and restore balance to your system.
Especially useful after a course of antibiotics, or when a patient is suffering from Candida.
Yogurt from goat and sheep milk is even better, as they tend to contain fewer chemicals.
Good bacteria will also produce antifungal enzymes that can help you fight Candida.
Plain yogurt does contain a small amount of lactose but this will not feed your Candida.
