Frequently Asked Questions

Product Information/Storage 

Are your products Halal Certified?

Yes! All of them are except Almond Bird’s Nest. We are working towards certifying it as soon as possible. 

What is the difference between AlmondPlus and Almond Culture?

AlmondPlus is a Meal-In-A-Bottle. The viscosity of the product is much thicker and it makes you feel full for up to 4 hours. On the other hand, Almond Culture is a daily drink, fortified with Prebiotics and Lactobacillus Paracasei 10 Billion Cells. It is good for strengthening our immune system. It is also 50% lighter in texture and easily consumed as a health drink.

Where can I get the Almond Culture drinks?

Currently, Almond Culture bottles can be purchased from Cold Storage Online/Cold Storage, Marketplace, or Jasons Deli physical stores. Follow us on Instagram @firstbrewsg for the full list of retail outlets. 

Do I need to refrigerate the products?

You can store the products at room temperature. However, the Almond Drink, Almond Bird’s Nest, Soya Milk, Jelly Cups, Agar-agar and Bandung need to be stored between  2°C to 4°C upon receiving. You can also check the product label for storage instructions.

No. We use only non-GMO soybeans from Canada, pandan leaves and cane sugar (if sweetened) with no preservatives or artificial flavouring.  

Is there a reduced sugar variety?

Yes, Soya Milk No Sugar comes in a 5kg bag. You may add sugar or sweetener according to your taste before consuming it.  

Do you have bottled Soy Milk without added sugar?

No. The bottled Soy Milk at 420ml is sweetened with sugar. Currently, we do not offer unsweetened bottled soy milk. Our Bottled Soy Milk is sweetened with 6.7g of sugar per 100ml. 

What is the difference between Bottled Soy Milk and the 5kg Soy Milk?

Bottled and Pouch contain the same ingredients but are produced slightly differently. Bottled Soy Milk is suited for people who prefer convenience, whereas the 5kg Pouch is more suited for larger groups who want to buy and use it in bulk. Another difference is that bottled milk has a minimum 45 days shelf life, whereas the 5kg pouch has a minimum 15 days shelf life. 

What is the percentage of bird’s nest is inside Realfit and Almond Bird’s Nest?

While we generally do not give out our recipes, we can assure that both products are made from 100% genuine bird’s nest, without preservatives or added colouring. 

 

Packaging

How can I open the bottle cap easily?

Turn the bottle upside down, knock the cap on a hard surface and that should do the trick. 

We have attempted to change the caps to make it easier for opening. However, as our drinks do not contain any preservatives, any change of caps may affect the quality of our products. We are continually looking for ways to innovate and create a better product for you.

When you purchase the next order, we will collect the empty bottles from you.
