The product should be stored in room temperature with no direct exposure to sun and should not be used to substitute any medicine to treat any conditions or diseases.
Beetroot is my favourite vege! It is virtually fat-free, low in calories and contains betacyanin to help reduce oxidation of LDL cholesterol and protect the artery walls to reduce risk of heart disease or stroke. It also contains folic acid for normal tissue growth and is a well-known antioxidant.
Calcium is crucial in maintaining bone strength and new bone growth. Not only that, it also helps the nervous system maintin proper pressure in your arteries and regulate heart rhythm & muscle functions.
Soya lecithin are derived during the processing of soy beans. Lecithin quickens fat breakdown, boost metabolism and prevent fat build-up in the walls of your heart, brain and arteries. Not only does it lower cholesterol and prevent heart diseases, it also helps prevent memory loss.
The tub is pretty hard to open that I had to get my dad to open it for me. Once opened, there is another protective cover on top to keep the contents cool & dry. A spoon is also provided for easier measurements.
To prepare the drink, add 2 spoons (15g) of oat powder.
Add 250ml of lukewarm water. Preferably the ratio of hot to cold water should be 3:1. Surprisingly, the brown powder has now turned pink upon contact with water, due to the beetroot's colouring.
Stir or shake well before serving. I decided to use a shaker bottle because I find that it is easier in helping the powder dissolve. You can alwaays use a spoon to scoop out the undissolved powder at the bottom, which I find is quite yummy to eat haha.
Lovely in pink! The drink doesn't smell milky at all but instead smells like regular oats, with a slight hint of vegetable smell (again, this could be due to the beetroot). Do try to consume the drink ASAP cos it will tend to thicken due to the consistency of the seaweed collagen.
My verdict? I was never a fan of oat drinks or even Nestum or Horlicks. This drink has changed my perspective. It's not too sweet and has a pleasant smell. Doesn't taste "jelak" at all. I don't take breakfast normally, so this acts as a meal replacement or supplement drink for me. It's quite filling and lasts me a good 2-3 hours before lunch time. My dad has high cholesterol, I'm so going to introduce this drink to him as an alternative to normal oats drink!
You can purchase Emgrain from selected pharmacies in Johor Bahru at RM50 for a 500g bottle. Pretty reasonable if you ask me, as one bottle can last for about 3 weeks. I also spotted Emgrain being sold at a seafood restaurant I dined in during my recent trip to Desaru haha. You can also purchase the shaker from them.

Before I end, I'd just like to leave a silent prayer to those who were on board AirAsia QZ8501. Hoping and praying that the plane will be found soon and that the passengers and crew can all return safe and sound. It's always saddening to hear news like these :( It has been an unfortunate year for the aviation industry, but what we can do now is to stay strong. You'll never know what's going to happen the next moment, so cherish your life, your health everyday.
