500ml Bottled Yakult Available At Selected Don Don Donki Outlets

Yakult is arguably one of the go-to probiotic drinks that we’d turn to whenever we are in need of a detox session.


The only gripe we may have with the probiotic drink is its petite size.

Well, Don Don Donki is now selling what we’ve all been dreaming of — a large 500ml bottled Yakult.

The 500ml probiotic drink costs $2.50 per bottle, almost the same as your regular sugared beverage, but filled with detoxing qualities.

Comparatively, 5 x 100ml Yakults at FairPrice will cost $3.20.

So you’re actually getting the same amount of Yakult at a cheaper price — definitely a sweet deal.

Plus, it gives you the perfect excuse to gulp down all 500ml at one go.

Ingredients of bottled Yakult differ slightly from original

The supersized Yakult drink appears identical in colour and branding to the mini ones we have grown accustomed to.

Taking a look at the ingredients, however, it does differ slightly from the original version.

The bottled Yakult’s main difference from its conventional counterpart is the exclusion of the Lactobacillus casei bacteria strain.

The ingredient is what Yakult typically markets as making the probiotic drink beneficial for our digestive system.

Instead, the bacteria is replaced with galacto-oligosaccharides liquid sugar in the bottled Yakult. It is essentially a prebiotic that helps with digestion, the same as what Lactobacillus casei does.

Taste lighter and less gao

Taste-wise, the mega-sized Yakult is significantly lighter and less gao than the tinier ones. Nonetheless, it will almost certainly remind you of the OG Yakult flavour.

It’s also less viscuous when it comes to consistency, so you don’t get jelak quite as easily.

The perfect detox drink after a filling meal

While the 500ml Yakult drink may not exactly be the same as the original, it’s definitely a must-try for bonafide fans.

Plus, the probiotic drink will be the perfect detox after a hearty meal.

So the next time you find yourself near a Don Don Donki after wolfing down your dinner, you know what to do.
