“ Brand: Danone / Type: Yoghurts „
I have been buying Danone Actimel yogurts with the purpose of buying something healthy for my husband's lunch pack. Actimel is a probiotic yogurt drink available in different fruit flavours and some fat free versions. A culture called L. Casei Danone is added to Actimel yogurts and the presence of this culture helps strengthen our body's natural defences. The yogurt comes in a 100 ml plastic bottle and is closed with an aluminium foil. The multi fruit flavour yogurt bottle has a two small pictures of half cut orange, peach, a piece of pine apple and strawberry fruit in the bottom of the bottle. These are the fruit's juices being used in this flavour. On drinking I can feel a mild taste of peach and orange. I really cannot get the pine apple and straw berry flavour. This yogurt is too sweet for me and it dominates the fruit flavour. I hope it gives us a good combination of these fruit flavours and not the over whelming sweet taste. The yogurt is cream in colour. It is not thick or too watery and does not fill our hunger though it contains 77 calories per 100 ml bottle. There are no fruit bits in this yogurt drink. It is advised to drink in the morning so that it can be more effective. Actimel should be stored in the refrigerator at below +6'C. This yogurt is suitable for vegetarians and for whole family from age 3. Ingredients used are Yogurt, Skimmed milk, Sugar/Liquid sugar (sucrose 9%), Fruit juices from concentrates 2.1% (pineapple, peach, orange, strawberry), Dextrose, stabilisers, L.casei Danone culture (Lactobacillus casei DN 114001), Vitamin B6. The plastic bottles can be recycled just like milk bottles and the cardboard carton holding the plastic bottles can be recycled too. Only the lid made from aluminium foil is not recyclable. If you are looking for healthy yogurt and don't mind the mild fruit flavour and sweet taste then multi fruit flavour Actimel might be for you.
I found that there is no review on Danone Actimel Multifruit so here you have mine. When I started to drink Actimel there was only the original and this Multifruit version available. Since then there are 10 different flavours plus the 3 fat free versions. As you know by today (because you have read my previous review on Coconut flavour Actimel - haven't you? Lol) Actimel is a yogurt that contains a special bacteria name L.casei Imunitass. It helps the digestion and supports our body's defences. Actimel yogurts come in a little white plastic bottle sealed with a silver coloured foil. The bottles contain 100 g of yogurt. The colour of the yogurt is odd white in almost all flavours as they don't contain fruit pieces just flavour. The Multifruit version used to taste fruity but the orange flavour dominated it. I haven't buy Multifruit for a while as I found a lot of other flavours and I had to test them too. Once there were only Multifruit available so I bought a pack of 8. When I tasted it I had to realise that the flavour has changed. This new flavour reminds me to plastic then the aftertaste to some medicine. I don't know when and why has Danone changed that nice flavour but I'm sure that it became a terrible one. I won't buy Actimel Multifruit anymore. If you would like to try it you can find it in most of the supermarkets. I buy my Actimel in Tesco. The 4 packs are available for 1.56 pounds but if you buy two packs of 8 you can buy them for 4 pounds. I hope this offer will last very long.

Suitable for vegetarians. My opinion --------------- I used to buy Actimel Multifruit for a very long time as it really helps my digestion. When I discovered the new tastes I switched to them and in the meanwhile the flavour of Multifruit has changed. I can't recommend you to try this flavour because all the others are better. My new favourite is the coconut one but the cherry is great as well. The yogurt works very well but its taste reminds me to plastic and medicine so I rate it 3 stars only.
