Singapore: YGC Group launches eucheuma seaweed drink

Health-food manufacturer YGC Group, in collaboration with the National University of Singapore, has unveiled the launch of a new range of health drinks made with eucheuma, a type of seaweed found locally in South-East Asia.

Announcing the launch, YGC Group said the line was suitable for a broad demographic and was promoted as an “everyday drink targeted at the health-conscious”.

The line, which features omega-3 rich eucheuma as its primary ingredient, is available in varieties such as Eucheuma with Cordyceps, Longan & Bird's Nest and Eucheuma with Honey, Collagen & Bird's Nest, and also includes more widely known health food ingredients such as red dates, goji berries, water chestnut abd rhoeo.

The 150ml bottles will initially be sold from YGC Group’s website at a price of S$19.50 ($14.40). The firm indicated that it may begin larger-scale commercial production and distribution in the latter half of the year.
