1. What are the proven effects of Yakult on human?
2. Sometimes there are sediments in the bottle. What are they?
It is the natural settling of the skimmed milk solids. This happens occasionally as we do not add any food stabilizers in Yakult. So, shake before you drink!
3. Why is the Yakult bottle quite small in size?
One small bottle of Yakult contains over 30 billion live Yakult bacteria. Yakult is not a ‘thirst-quencher’. It is comfortable to have Yakult in small bottle so you can enjoy Yakult everyday as part of your balanced diet.
Smaller bottle is more hygienic. A larger bottle that is not finished might be kept open, thus has a bigger risk of infection with other bacteria.
4. How often should I drink Yakult?
At least one bottle a day. If you’d like to drink more, that’s fine. But keep in mind, it’s not about drinking a lot at one go – what’s important is to drink Yakult regularly every day so the Shirota strain good bacteria is always present in our intestines, regulating our gut function.
5. Why does Yakult comes in only 1 flavour?
As a probiotic drink, Yakult only contains the ingredients necessary to deliver the live Yakult bacteria into our intestines. Therefore, it does not contain any unnecessary additives such as colouring substances. Different flavours usually require you to add in colouring and preservatives.
6. What is the best time to drink Yakult?
Yakult is a food, not a medicine, basically you can drink it anytime. It is meant to be taken daily, so please consume it at a time that is convenient for you to consume during your daily routine. Many people find it easy to drink regularly if taken during breakfast.
7. How long can Yakult be kept after taken out from the fridge?
It is not a problem to keep Yakult outside of the fridge for a while, even up to 4-8 hours. The Yakult bacteria will start to become active at temperature between 15°C to 40°C and will slowly begin to die after that as they run out of nutrients to stay alive.
8. Can I drink more than 1 bottle of Yakult daily?
Yes, there is no limit to how many bottles you can drink in a day, because Yakult is a functional food, not a medicine. At least one bottle a day is enough to provide the benefits. What is important is not to drink many bottles at one time, but to continue drinking at least one bottle of Yakult every day.
9. Is Yakult Halal?
Both Yakult Ace and Yakult Ace Light are certified halal by Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM). At Yakult, a special Halal committee is formed to scrutinise every aspect of the Halal regulations and to ensure that all requirements are stringently adhered to.
10. How is Yakult made?
A solution of skim milk powder, sugar and water is ultra-heat treated, then fermented using our unique live good bacteria, Shirota strain. Syrup, vitamins, calcium and flavours are added, and Yakult is then bottled and packaged. For full details, please place a booking and visit our factory in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
11. Can Yakult be frozen?
Yakult can be frozen. When it’s frozen, the Shirota strain takes a nap. But when it thaws, these good bacteria wake up and get back to delivering those health benefits in our tummies! Just a heads-up: freezing the plastic bottle might cause it to shrink, creating small gaps between the cap and the bottle. This could potentially lead to contamination, so it’s best to avoid freezing Yakult.
