It's very simple Every day is a Yakult day

What's it all about?

What's in the bottle?

Lots and lots of very good stuff.  Well, 6.5 billion bacteria to be precise. Called Lactobacillus casei Shirota, they’re named after the scientist Dr Shirota who cultivated this unique strain that is scientifically proven to reach the gut alive.  The other few ingredients make up the fermented milk drink you see today. You see, with Yakult, it’s all about the bacteria. And it always will be. Read more

What is the difference between the red and blue lid?

Yakult is available in two versions – Yakult (with red lids) and Yakult Light (with blue lids). The Light version has less sugar… but other than that they are pretty much the same; both contain at least 6.5 billion bacteria per bottle.

How much and how often should I drink Yakult?

We recommend a bottle of Yakult a day. But if you'd like a second bottle, that's absolutely fine. Just remember that no matter how much you may enjoy it, Yakult isn't meant to be a thirst-quencher!

Who is Yakult suitable for?

Everyone! So for example, Yakult is suitable for vegetarians, diabetics, lactose-intolerants, pregnant or breastfeeding mums, gluten intolerants and people taking antibiotics.  Read more
