[Review] Yakult Health Foods - Maroyaka Kale Powder

Kale

Have you eaten Kale before?  It is a vegetable with green or purple leaves.  Kale is very high in Calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K & beta carotene (provitamin A).  Kale also contains sulforaphane, a natural chemical with potent anti-cancer properties. 

Such power food, but it is not available in supermarket most of the time. :(

Maroyaka Kale Powder

I was introduced to Maroyaka Kale Powder by Yakult Health Foods (YHF) when it hit the shore recently.  I went for the product launch debut on 29 March 2014.  I must say, I am truly impressed with how YHF kale & barley grass were farmed, cultivated, harvested from the soil of Kunisaki Peninsular of Oita Prefecture, Japan. It is 100% organic - no preservatives, no additives, no artificial colourings & no pesticides were added/used.  The factory in Oita is ISO 9001 certified for quality assurance, ISO 22000 for food safety, ISO 14001 certified for environmental management & the health food it markets are all GMP certified.



No pesticides are used, so all bugs are removed by hand.

I eat fruits & vegetables, in fact, I love them.  I also take raw vegetables because they are a lot more nutritious than cooked vegetables.  In a way, I am used to eating raw vegetables, & I don't mind the taste. But, many people today lead a hectic lifestyle with the habit of eating out & not eating enough greens. Greens are essential in our diets to achieve optimal health and wellness. YHFs’ Maroyaka Kale offers consumers the goodness & benefits of genuine, premium kale, readily available for easy consumption. 

I tried 2 ways of consuming Maroyaka Kale Powder. The 1st way was to simply dissolve the powder into a glass of water (100ml).

I have to tell you, the taste of raw vegetable is real (after all, it is made from raw kale).  If you are not the type who take raw vegetables, you might not like the taste, so this way of consumption is not for you.

The other way I tried was to add the Maroyaka Kale Powder to yoghurt.

In this case, the flavour of the yoghurt helped to disguise the taste of Maroyaka Kale Powder (raw vegetable) which some of you may find it easier on you.

If you are convinced that you should eat your greens yet lacking opportunity to, YHF's Maroyaka Kale Powder is a good way to supplement your greens intake.  All you need is to try out different ways of consuming it & settle for 1 or 2 that is easier on you.


If you don't take vegetable, at least drink it!

A box of Maroyaka Kale Powder contains 30 sachets, each sachet is 9g.  It is recommended to consume 1-2 sachets per day.  It is retailing at Guardian Pharmacy at $79.90 from now till 30th September 2014, after which the usual price of $87.90 will resume.

There is a Colon Health Talk coming up this Saturday 19 April 2014.  The seminar fee is $10, fully redeemable for YHF's products during the seminar.  Please call to register your interest.
