R-1 Yogurt from Meiji (明治ヨーグルトR-1)


Today I have a brand of yogurt to recommend you guys! From the morning show I was watching today, this yogurt was introduced as an easy start for those who want to begin their healthy lifestyle challenge for this new year. Meiji has many yogurt products that support health in general. One of them is the red-packaged R-1 yogurt, available in the yogurt cup type and drinking type. 

Nowadays, if you go shopping for yogurts in Japan, you’ll see names composed of big capital letter plus number. This is because there has been a health trend regarding different types of bacteria that would help enhance your internal system. In this case, what R-1 stands for is the bacteria named “1073R-1” (You can look in the photo above to find out its real royally long name lol) Just a quick science here from Wikipedia, 1073R-1 is a type of Bulgarian bacteria, whose characteristic is to be able to produce EPS (Exopolysaccharide, polysaccharides produced outiside the bacteria cell) This EPS is known to help enhance the immune system and protect against influenza virus. 

To put it simply, this R-1 yogurt is one of the new functional food trends in Japan. The taste is not super different from most yogurts. But if you’re looking for something to eat while also allowing you to take care of your body, then you can try this out for once, or mix it with other different yogurts in your shopping basket!
