We all have been young ones in a certain phase of our lives and probably one of the things we consumed (that we still crave even as a grown-up) are these small bottles of Yakult. This drink simply has a distinct taste that is not only a feast to the tastebuds but also has its fair share of health benefits.
But, despite being such a hit product, the long-running question that is lingering on our minds is that, “why does the Yakult drink only come in small bottles and not in bigger ones?” Honestly, a lot of people already signified that they are willing to buy bigger sizes of Yakult if the manufacturer ever decides to release such.
So, to aid everyone’s curiosity, a Facebook user named Roseller Kempis used the platform to finally ask Yakult about this. He messaged their Facebook page and he was lucky enough to get a response from the team.
According to the Yakult Phillipines, this is because their product should be consumed in just one sitting. Yakult contains live culture which is prone to contamination when not consumed at once.
Having a bigger-sized Yakult makes it more prone to contamination by frequent opening and closing of the lid.
In another message, the company added that they are using 80 ML bottles which contain just the right amount and sufficient good bacteria (8 billion live Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota) which helps keeps the balance of the gut and at the same time improve digestion.
Now, the mystery is finally solved! It is amazing to know that in such a small bottle, several brilliant minds have worked on and considered the welfare of their consumers in order to provide them with not just a “drink” but something that provides not just one but many benefits to our health.
