Looking to Stock Up on Healthy Produce? Check Out these Singapore Health Food Stores
Our dietary habits are continually changing. As we learn more about nutrition, more and more of us opt for healthier food options. For example, in 2017, UK’s sales revenue from vegan products totaled approximately 657 million pounds. While no other survey on the subject has been conducted since then, it is estimated that this number has grown and is likely to continue to grow. And Singaporeans are refusing to be left behind. As the population of Singapore becomes more health-conscious, health food stores have mushroomed across the city.
With three locations across Singapore, Scoop Wholefoods is a convenient option for stocking up on healthy goodies. The Australian-owned store retails products by weight, which means that you only buy what you need. The store stocks a huge range of local and international wholefoods, many imported from Australia. Some of the products on offer include a range of cold-pressed oils, vinegars, grains, salt, rice, flour and nuts. Scoop Wholefoods also stocks natural household products, such as laundry powders, salt baths and stain removers.
Those who care about the health of their gut will love the store’s prebiotic and probiotic foods, or more precisely drinks. Try kombucha or junbucha, fermented drinks jam packed with good bacteria. Alternatively opt for water kefir, which is infused with fruit and vegetables. Last but not least, the store also offers tepache, a traditional Mexican concoction with bacteria sourced from pineapple skins.

Not just healthy, but also ethically-sourced, Little Farms’ range of produce is not just good for you but also for the world. Since Little Farms buys directly from farmers—there is no middleman—the products sold at the store are also less taxing on the wallet.
The one-stop-shop stocks anything and everything from fruit and vegetables to meat and seafood, both local and imported. Fill your basket with fresh organic milk, organic free-range Danish eggs or vanilla bean organic coconut yogurt. Stop at the bakery for some sourdough bread or gluten-free classic country loaf. Alternatively, pick up some ready-made frozen meals for your home freezer.

I suspect that Covid might have prompted more Malaysians than ever to apply, raising the bar for everyone else. So an increase in rejections might have more to do with the number of Malaysians in the queue (we know who gets ultimate priority).
