Below is a comparison between Tummify and Yakult (original and light versions).
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.
