The influencer has raised concerns about Tang's sugar content, leaving it up to the viewer to make an informed decision about consuming it.

After reviewing Bournvita, nutritionist Revant Himatsingka shared a video of himself reviewing another popular product. This time, he reviewed the drink mix, Tang. In the video, Himatsingka claimed that the product has a very high sugar content and insisted that consuming it is not a healthy option.

The influencer even suggests that if ‘one runs out of sugar, one shouldn’t bother neighbours; instead use Tang’ as a substitute.(Twitter/@thefoodpharmer)

“Tang has ~93% sugar! Tang is nothing but flavoured sugar powder. If they limited their marketing to taste, there would be no issue,” wrote Revant Himatsingka while sharing a video on Twitter.

“The problem is they advertise their product as a drink with various vitamins. They also market the drink with a campaign ‘Tang milao, Pani pilao’ to get children to drink more water using Tang. Tang also contains E171 (Titanium Dioxide), an ingredient banned by the EU and several Middle-Eastern countries,” he added.

“In less than 90 seconds, I reviewed Tang,” concluded Himatsingka.

Another enquired, “You are doing an excellent job and spreading awareness. More power to you.”

A third commented, “Waiting for you to share a video on Kinder Joy! Why is it banned in some places and still allowed in India? Khao Khelo Khush Raho! Their latest ad campaign is to be gifted in Raksha Bandhan!”

“I’ve been reading the labels from the time I’m watching your videos. Thank you bro @thefoodpharmer,” expressed a fourth.

A fifth wrote, “Please make a video on how to analyse nutritional information whenever someone buys something from the market. That would be more informative.”
