Probally a very stupid question, but would acidolpholous be considered vegan?

No - as it is normally derived from dairy bacteria.

However, vegan brands are available made with human strain lactobaccilli.

So yes and no really...... :wink:

There are vegan sources of acidophilous. I don't know how they are grown, but since lactic acid can be derived from beets as well as dairy, I suppose it's possible. "Vega"and other vegan supplements contain vegan sources of acidophilous.

Miso also contains acidophilous (or some similar good bacteria) as does tempeh. (That's why you should never boil miso or put it into boiling water: that kills the good bacteria).

I wasn't aware of the miso or tempeh. That's good info to know. I'm really worried about the vegan sources of acidophilous though. I'm wondering if they would provide enough to tame candida problems as regular acidophilous does. Right now I'm eating a ton of fruit and that's not helping the problem. Guess I'll have to try it and see how it works. Next shopping trip!

Another thing to try for candida is supplements that create oxygen in the body. I've tried Oxypowder, (it comes in veggie capsules) and it got rid of the white coating on my tongue (which is supposed to sometimes be a sign of overgrowth of yeast): http://www.oxypowder.com/

Thanks for the info, but I don't think that's quite for me. I've done the cleanses, in fact finished one less than a month ago. Normally, from top to bottom I am emptied out in about 6 hours. Candida just loves me regardless. But that's a new option when time comes for another cleanse in a few months.

I'm not sure if vegan acidophilous is 'weaker' than a normal acidophilous. It is possible to get 'stronger' acidiphilous than average as well, but not sure if this would be vegan or not........

This is a more expensive type - I think it has less bacteria than a normal brand, but it is more expensive, so presumably better? It is definately vegan, even though it doesn't say so in the product spec, it says so on the bottom right of the label below the 'blue diamond':

This is the version which I take and is described as vegan on the product spec:
