What’s inside yogurt cubes? TLDR: lots of sugar

Basically, horrible. Know of people eating this yummy thing? Read on. You might wanna stop them.

Recently we’ve seen this on sale everywhere and online at places like Shopee. Very disturbingly, NONE of them displays any form of nutrition facts and ingredients. Try searching them on Shopee. Thousands and hundreds of them sold and not a single label or nutrition fact shown.

Lucky for us, a supplier approached us touting this “healthy snack”. Of course we had to see its nutrition facts and ingredients before even considering it.

Ingredients (strawberry version): Yogurt (contains milk), strawberry. Problem: no mention whatsoever of what goes inside the yogurt.

56.9g sugar for 10 million probiotic cells only?

Nutrition facts (strawberry version) (see second pic in this post): A whopping 56.9% sugar.

Let’s say a normal probiotic supplement gives you (at least) 10 billion cells and if you’d wanna achieve the same amount by ingesting this “healthy snack”, you’ll need 100kg of it (not a typo). Which means 56.9g of sugar into your system from just 100g of yogurt cubes that only gives you 0.1% of a single probiotic supplement serving.

To put things into perspective: 5g of sugar = 1 teaspoon of sugar. So that’s more than 11 teaspoons right there.

We’ll end this post without a recommendation because it should be obvious enough. Too bad most consumers aren’t aware of this because, as mentioned above, almost none of the packaging comes with a proper nutrition label nor will you be able to find out online before buying.

Please share this so they know what’s actually marketed as “healthy” may not necessarily be so.

#stayhome Productivity Tips

  1. Change out of your pyjamas – trust us, it helps.
  2. Reduce phone scrolling time for that incessant CoVid news. Better yet, go on airplane mode for 15-30 minutes length of time.
  3. Make sure your next meal is taken care of. Did we mention Liquid Meals?
  4. Stock up on vitamins and minerals for maximum brain boosting function and focus. Think Daily Greens and Focus Fuel.
  5. Avoid sweet foods for that midday slump. Think Liquid Meals rather than a heavy lunch.
  6. Remember to breathe for extra brain oxygen. Go for a walk and/or some sun.

How we keep our prices low

One of the perks of living in Malaysia is cheap and accessible food. With Focus Foods starting out from its capital, Kuala Lumpur, the only way for us to penetrate into the minds of the people and make the greatest impact in people’s diets is to keep our prices really low, really affordable.

How do we do that? Not by cutting corners. We put alot of thought into sourcing the best ingredients – and good things don’t come cheap.

That’s why, at least for now, you’ll not see resellers. Our website is the only place one can purchase from. By cutting out the middleman, low prices means we get to make the cost of everybody staying mentally sharp and physically fit as low as possible.
