In 1930 a medical researcher at Kyoto Imperial University discovered that lactic acid bacteria suppresses bad bacteria in the intestinal tract. He developed and strengthening a strain of lactic acid bacteria so that it could survive the digestion process, and turned it into the famous Yakult probiotic supplement.

Yakult has since grown to sell a large range of food, drinks, supplements and cosmetics, many containing their signature probiotic strain. Yakult’s probiotics have been scientifically proven to boost the immune system and survive digestion through the human intestinal tract, to have maximum effect on your health.

Many western countries know Yakult’s signature drink, but their total range of products is generally not available. Japanese Taste offers a variety of Yakult products rarely seen outside of Japan.
