They gather information from Internet, relatives and peers living abroad and Word-of-Mouth. Health conscious people meticulously view the ‘Nutrition Facts Label’ of a food product to watch carbohydrate, fat, sodium or sugar intake.

M.R.P. of 1 litre pack of these products is ranged from Taka 140/- Taka 190/-. They are available in superstores like Nandan, Almas, Dhali, Dedar, Tropikana etc. located mainly in posh areas like Gulshan, Bannani and Dhanmondi. The only isolated Soy Protein product ‘Whey’ is imported from USA. 3kg pack is sold in Taka 5,000.00 at a store in Gulshan (Tropikana).
