In a continuation of his product reviews, nutritionist and influencer Revant Himatsingka has once again shared his insights on a popular consumable – this time, it’s the drink mix, Tang. Himatsingka’s video review, in which he raises concerns about the product’s high sugar content, has garnered significant attention and sparked discussions about its nutritional value and marketing practices.
Having previously reviewed Bournvita, Himatsingka took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Tang, focusing primarily on its sugar content. In the video, he reveals that Tang reportedly contains approximately 93% sugar, branding it as nothing more than “flavoured sugar powder.” Himatsingka asserts that if Tang’s marketing solely emphasized its taste, there might not be much controversy.
However, his primary concern stems from the product’s claims of offering various vitamins and its campaign “Tang milao, Pani pilao,” which encourages children to drink more water using Tang. Himatsingka also points out that Tang includes E171 (Titanium Dioxide), an ingredient banned in the European Union and several Middle-Eastern countries.
Concluding the video in under 90 seconds, Himatsingka underscores his reservations about Tang’s sugar content and its status as a health drink option. He leaves the ultimate decision of whether to consume the product to the viewer.
Since its posting on August 19, the video has gained substantial traction on Twitter, accumulating over 6.4 lakh (640,000) views and counting. The tweet has been widely liked and retweeted, sparking conversations and reactions from the online community.
Commenters engaged with the video’s content, expressing a range of viewpoints:
- Some users appreciated the awareness-raising efforts: “You are doing an excellent job and spreading awareness. More power to you.”
- Others raised specific questions about product bans: “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!”
- Many expressed gratitude for the educational content: “I’ve been reading the labels from the time I’m watching your videos. Thank you bro @thefoodpharmer.”
- Requesting further insights, a user suggested: “Please make a video on how to analyze nutritional information whenever someone buys something from the market. That would be more informative.”
Himatsingka’s video not only highlights concerns about Tang’s sugar content but also triggers discussions on informed consumer choices, nutritional awareness, and marketing strategies in the food industry. It underscores the increasing role of influencers in shaping public perceptions about consumable products.
