Product review: Tummify probiotic shots

Tummify probiotic shots are an alternative to other probiotic products in the market that are higher in sugar. This is a product designed for gut health.

Tummify probiotic shots

Tummify probiotic shots are 98% sugar free and certified organic. Each shot contains 35 billion colony-forming units (CFU) of a 13 multi-strain formula (see more details in the Nutrition information section below).

The product comes in 5 and 20-packs containing single serve (65ml) plastic bottles, which are BPA-free and recyclable.


Fresh organic milk (99%), monk fruit juice concentrate, prebiotic fibre, kefir cultures and probiotics.

For reference, these are the ingredients in the most popular probiotic product, Yakult:

  • Original: Water, skim milk powder (reconstituted), sugar, dextrose, flavouring, live Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain
  • Light: Water, skim milk powder (reconstituted), maltitol, polydextrose, sugar, dextrose, flavouring, sweetener (steviol glycoside), live Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain

Taste test

I got a few complimentary shots courtesy of Doorstep Organics. It was great timing since I had just finished a round of nasty antibiotics. I really enjoyed the not-too-sweet taste and texture of the product. Two thumbs up.
