Frequently Asked Questions

All About Nutrition

Are Powdies drink mixes different from regular juices?

Yes, they are different! Powdies products are made from ‘whole’ fruits and vegetables, which are very different from juices. When we say whole fruits, we mean using all edible parts of the fruit, including the pulp, seeds and skin which are rich in dietary fibre. At Powdies, we are proud to say that our products retain all natural fibre and do not contain any added sugar or additives. On the other hand, for many juices you buy from supermarkets, the stringy yet healthy fibre are removed through the extraction of juices. Some commercial juices are also sweetened with added sugar.

How much dietary fibre does a Powdies pack contain?

Not only does dietary fibre help improve your digestive system, it also slows the absorption of sugar and hence help improve blood sugar levels. It is a top priority at Powdies to ensure our products retain all dietary fibre which comes naturally in the fruit and vegetable. Each of our packets contains 3.8 to 7.4 grams of fibre, which is up to 30% of what an individual nutritionally requires a day (based on a 2,000-calorie diet).

What does it mean by being ‘100% natural’?

Powdies drink mixes are 100% natural. This means nothing artificial and synthetic is added. The raw ingredients we use are only fruits and vegetables, without any added sugar, preserving agents, flavourings, colouring agents or fillers.

How many portions of ‘5-a-day' are in one Powdies packet?

Each Powdies packet is packed with 3.5 portions of your 5-a-day. 5-a-day is a dietary advice made by the World Health Organisation (WHO). It recommends an individual to consume at least five portions of different fruits and vegetables a day to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer. Here are some examples of one portion of fruit or vegetable: 1 medium apple, 2 handfuls of raspberries, half a medium cucumber and 3 tablespoons of carrots etc.

How are Powdies drink mixes made?

The Powdies drink mixes are made by dehydrating fresh whole fruits and vegetables, under a low-temperature, slow and controlled drying process. We ensure the process takes away only water, while preserving maximal taste, colour and most importantly the nutritional value of the fresh ingredients. As the powder is dried to a very low moisture level, our final product has an extended shelf life of up to 12 months, minimising the likelihood of household food wastage.

How are Powdies drink mixes formulated?

Each flavour that Powdies offers has been carefully designed and formulated by our medical professionals. We ensure all recipes taste good, as well as having a combination of vitamins and minerals to deliver different health benefits.

Are Powdies drink mixes the same as supplements?

No, Powdies drink mixes are different from vitmain or mineral supplement. Majority of store-bought supplements are made of isolated and synthetic nutrients. This means each pill contains only one type of micronutrient and is made artificially in a laboratory or industrial setting. On the other hand, Powdies drink mixes contain a of a mix of micronutrients come naturally from a range of organic fruits and vegetables. To achieve a balanced diet, our body requires a combination of different micronutrients to work together. Therefore, in contrast to Powdies drink mixes, isolated nutrient in supplements could not substitute for a balanced diet. It is also shown that human bodies absorb synthetic nutrients at a slower rate as compared to natural nutrients.
