Are you getting the real deal?

September 2018 

Yakult was the first probiotic fermented milk drink of its kind to be introduced to Australians back in 1994. Since then, many copy-cat products have appeared which have caused confusion to many shoppers.

Yakult only makes Yakult branded products and do not make any of the copy-cat versions. While Yakult differs from the copy-cats in many ways, including using quality Australian ingredients, use-by date labelled on each bottle and the Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain, how can you be sure you are choosing the genuine Yakult product when you are at the shops?


Here are 3 things to look for to ensure you are getting the real deal:

1.       The Yakult Logo
All Yakult products will have a large Yakult logo in the front of the pack


2.       Country of Origin Label
You will find these on all Yakult packs


1.       Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain picture
A magnified picture of our unique bacteria the Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain is on every pack of Yakult.


With these 3 checks, you can be confident you are drinking the genuine Yakult every day.
