what is 'lactose from soy'?

i'm not sure about lactose in soy, i've never heard of it. i know that silken tofu often contains gluco delta lactone (which isn't dairy despite the 'lac-', but is fermented and therefore out if you're on a candida diet).
are you taking probiotics and doing all that good anti-candida stuff?
there isn't a cheese recipe in it, but you may appreciate The Food Allergy Survival Guide. its got a load of recipes with no wheat, yeast, refined sugar, etc in it- all vegan. including a pizza crust.
i think the simplest cheese recipe i've seen is unroasted, unsalted almonds or cashews, ground to dust/very fine, put into a little bowl thats been rubbed all over (just the inside of the bowl, yeah?! ) with the inside of a cut garlic clove, with a little lemon juice mixed in, squished to make a paste. it aint bad on crackers. its not 100% cheeseesque, but it does the job.
i've also made a cream cheese in a similar manner- soak unroasted unsalted cashews in a bowl of water till they go soft (overnight is good) then drain that water, and put them in a blender with enough fresh water to make a creamy paste, plus some garlic and lemon juice for a bit of smokiness and tang. i also add herbs, and sometimes add a big chunk of fresh cucumber and make a sort of cucumber yogurty dip. if you freeze that, then microwave it to defrost until its hot, it goes really melty and creamy with a nice crust on the top- sort of like a cauliflower cheese topping.
