    The probiotic way to healthy living

    IF IT tastes good, it's probably bad for you.

    This is a myth that F&N is looking to debunk with its Alive Low Fat Yoghurt range.

    Its seven flavours and smooth mouth-feel make it a yummy treat for the health-conscious.

    The yoghurt contains probiotic live cultures and "good bacteria".

    According to Dr Ooi Choon Jin, a gastroenterologist at Gleneagles Medical Centre, probiotics can be helpful in reducing the severity and duration of illnesses.

    With its probiotic yoghurt, Alive aims to deliver both taste and health benefits.

    The yoghurt comes in flavours like Mixed Berry & Aloe Vera, and F&N Alive Low Fat Fruit-Chunk Yoghurt with Aloe Vera & Nata de Coco.

    Those looking to make an easy treat can buy the Alive Low Fat Natural Plus Yoghurt. Dress it up with fresh or poached fruit, or even with a natural sweetener like honey, and you've got a delicious snack or dessert.

    The yoghurts are free of trans fats and cholesterol, so you don't have to think twice before digging in. Find them at all leading supermarkets for $2.50 for a pack of two.

    Also look for the brand's nutritional snack bars in four delicious flavours - great for those on the go. Like the yoghurts, the snack bars are big on taste, and are packed with all the nutrients you need. The snack bars cost $5.95 for a box of six individually-wrapped portions.
