    Came across this article recently which nicely ties in with what I was trying to express earlier. Sugar is not the evil monster that some make it out to be:

    My mother always told me :-)

    Yep, I think it just depends on the parents' personal preference or views toward it. I think my son actually drinks Yakult when he's with his grandparents once a week but nowadays I take the stance that "What happens at Ye Ye and Ma Ma's (Cantonese paternal grandparents) stays at Ye Ye and Ma Ma's." Who knows what else he's eating there--on the list is most definitely oreos. So, after his sugar high on the weekends I see no reason to feed him any more sugar at all during the week.

    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    Yakult announced in May 2011 on the setup of a new production line at its Hong Kong Yakult’s factory to produce Yakult LT(Yiliduo LT), a low-sugar version of the original Yakult drink, on May 18, 2011 for local sales. The new version will have less than 5gm of sugar per 100 ml bottle.

    http://www.yakult.co.jp/english/news/article.php?num=41

    Thus it contains half or less than half the sugar content than natural orange juice & coke.

    I am a strong believer of moderation too:)

    The point is that I'm not used to the unchilled storage way of yakult & some yogurt product at some supermarkets & convenience stores here. There is also some other brand of yogurt product that should go into the chillers being placed beside them at a particular supermaket, but again they were stored next to the chillers. Back home such things are all stringently chilled for sale and if I don't remember wrongly the yakult bottles there are indicated with a specific temperature to be stored. It doesn't matter if soft drinks are not chilled for sale but to have yogurt products not chilled for sale that seems abit odd...
