According to my dr. Who specializes in candida exclusively sauerkraut and miso are restricted foods. They are both "aged" or "cultured". The diet really serves no purpose if you are not on antifungals and treating any other condition or inflammation in your body that may be weakening your immune system. Nothing is a waste of time if you are doing the right things. There are so many "cures" out there for candida but majority of them are worthless and some make it worse.
