Yakult probiotic drink in the Philippines is taking aim at people misusing its drink as a mixer. In a short clip on its official Facebook page, Yakult Philippines says “Adding Yakult to your favorite refreshments might taste even better, but we strongly recommend to drink Yakult as it is. Keep in mind that the 8 billion Live Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota in every bottle of Yakult works best when taken as originally intended.”
There have been many instances where milk tea chains use Yakult as an ingredient in their drinks including the iconic Yakult bottle. Yakult does recommend consumers to return to the original by drinking Yakult on its own to receive all the probiotic benefits.
