Why does Yakult contain sugar?
Each bottle of Yakult Original contains 8.8g of sugar, a bottle of Yakult Light contains 2.9g and a bottle of Yakult Plus contains 2.7g of sugar. Sugar plays an important role in production with our unique bacteria using it as part of the fermentation process.
Is Yakult suitable for people taking antibiotics?
Yes, however, certain antibiotics can affect the survival of our bacteria (L. casei Shirota) within Yakult. Therefore, we recommend leaving at least two hours before and after taking antibiotics before drinking Yakult.
