Heart disease and stroke are amongst the biggest killers, accounting for 15 million deaths in 2015 in the world, according to statistics from the World Health Organisation. In Singapore, cardiovascular disease accounts for 1 in every 3 deaths.
So taking the right steps towards living a healthy lifestyle is important to achieve good heart health such as taking a routine health screening or having a nutritious diet or active lifestyle.

F&N delivered a couple of packages to my place
I recently received the Reduced Sugar and No Added Sugar variants of the F&N NutriSoy from F&N, for my tasting.
I had personally preferred the No Added Sugar drink because with this variant, I found that I can taste much more of the original taste of the soya beans without the flavour being diluted with the sweetness from the sugar. As well, the drink also tastes great when taken both when chilled as well as warmed up.
For instance, after a run, I like having my soy milk cold from the fridge as I am quite hot and sweaty, but on the other hand, after a meal, having soy milk warm tastes refreshingly great to wash down my food.
