Danone Actimel Strawberry
Advantages: good for my digestion
Disadvantages: artificial taste
When I don't have a chance to go to the Tesco for my favourite Coconut tasting Actimel I have to choose from Sainsbury's variety which is quite poor. Most of the times I buy Strawberry flavoured Actimel. I drink it for 3 years now every morning and I still find it very useful for my digestion.
About Danone Actimel
On the wrapper of the product you can read that it is a scientifically proven product that helps support your body's defences. Actually it is a kind of yogurt that has no fruit pieces in it just flavoured. It contains L.casei Imunitass which is a unique bacteria that helps to top up the good bacteria. For more information visit www.actimel.co.uk
It is available in 13 different flavours: Blueberry, Cherry, Coconut, Forest Fruit, Multifruit, Orange, Original, Strawberry, Vanilla, Original Fat free, Peach and Mango Fat free, Raspberry fat free and Strawberry fat free.
Price and package
Usually I do the shopping in Sainsbury's but they store only Strawberry, Original and Multifruit Actimels plus 2-3 fat free versions so my favourites I buy in Tesco. I buy two packs of 8 for 4 pounds in both of the supermarkets. One single pack of 8 yogurts costs 2.47 pounds in Tesco or 2.64 in Sainsbury's. My husband drinks it only occasionally but I drink it every day. The Danone Actimel is packed in little white plastic bottles. The bottles are not transparent at all. All the bottles contain 100 g probiotic yogurt. They are sealed with a silver foil (I think it is made of aluminium). There are packs of 4 or 8 but when they are on offer you can se packs of 12 as well.
The Actimel Strawberry
Actually it is very similar to the other ones the only difference to the original is its strawberry taste. It is slightly light pink coloured and thin as a drinking yogurt. There aren't any fruit pieces in it. For me the strawberry taste seems to be artificial. I think you get the same result if you add squash to your drinking yogurt.
Yogurt, Skimmed Milk, Liquid Sugar (Sucrose: 8.4%), Strawberry (2.1%), Dextrose, Stabiliser (Modified Tapioca Starch), Flavouring, Acidity Regulator (Citric Acid), L.Casei Imunitass® Cultures, Colour (Anthocyanins)
Contains milk. Suitable for the family, from the age of 3 upwards. Suitable for vegetarians.
I think the strawberry taste of Actimel is not the best match. It seems to be quite artificial. Usually I like strawberry yogurts - especially the ones made by Danone - but this one doesn't belong to my very favourites.
I am lactose intolerant which means that I can have only a little quantity of normal dairy products because I don't have enough enzyme to digest lactose. I found that Danone's products contain ideal quantity of lactose for me not to suffer. So I can drink an Actimel every day without any harm and I find them really useful to my digestion.
Although I don't really like this strawberry taste ocasionally I buy it because there are worse matches within Actimel's varieties (eg. Multifruit).
Summary: Try it, probably like its taste
