What is it:
Calpis is my favorite milk based beverage in Japan. Unfortunately, in its original form it contains way too much sugar and is non conforming to a LC lifestyle. That is where the Amino version comes in! It contains zero sugar and is sweetened with erythritol :) and unfortunately, the normal cocktail of artificial sweeteners that I am finding more and more often with sugarless products are also listed on the ingredient list.
Taste: Tastes very much like a light version of the original.
Price: Costs the same as the original. ( about $1.25 for 16 ozs)
Verdict: Although Amino Calpis is fortified with 6 different Amino acids and is a natural probiotic. The cocktail of sweeteners does this beverage a disservice and takes away from the from the overall health benefits of drinking this beverage. Therefore this is regulated to the drink as a treat once in a blue moon arena. If you love Calpis and need a fix give it a whirl :)
