There are a couple other websites I’ve looked at that give advice for candida sufferers. One particular site emphasizes the need to cut out all soy products inclding miso. Two other sites group miso with things like kimchi and saurkraut and suggest it has probiotic properties and can support the detox process. I love miso and would love to add it to what I’m eating now but I’m hesitant. Can anyone clear up this contradiction?June 7, 2012 at 2:45 pm #84180

We say no to soy on the forum in general but the fermented aspect of miso is likely beneficial to your treatment…its hard to say if its a detriment or a benefit (I have a feeling its in the middle).
Considering that soy is a genetically engineered food item and isn’t likely organic, I would say no from a personal perspective.

Like Raster says, there’s a lot of crap soy produced in the west. I can’t see how heated miso soup could be probiotic either. A better soy product would probably be natto, which is eaten raw so the bacteria remain alive, and it contains vitamin K2, B12, mucilage and a useful enzyme called nattokinase. It tends to taste awful to anyone who doesn’t happen to be Japanese though. Soy is high in plant proteins, which tend to be toxic, and it also contains goitrogens that can interfere with your thyroid function. It’s probably best to avoid it until you’re feeling better.
Kimchi and sauerkraut are good options, but also contain goitrogens, like all crucifers. The important thing is to make sure your iodine status is good. Goitogens essentially “steal” iodine from your thyroid, so eating a bit more overcomes this. Seaweed is the best source of iodine, but kelp supplements are a cheap and reliable way to maintain good iodine levels and contain a few other nutrients.February 14, 2018 at 4:12 pm #175155

I am curious about chickpea miso. Would that be beneficial on the candida diet?
