Activated charcoal has become a hit not just for home use and beauty products. Recently, a lot of food enthusiasts are starting to incorporate this powerful antioxidant into snacks, breads, drinks, and desserts. Because of the ability of activated charcoal to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, it has become an ongoing health trend. It is known to reduce high cholesterol, cleanse digestive tracks, whiten teeth, alleviate gas and bloating, and is also great for anti-aging.
The activated charcoal yogurt invasion continues. And this time, BLK 513, the brand every health enthusiast, dessert lover, and FroYo junkie has been talking about, is set to conquer the hearts (and tummies) of more people as the brand opens a new branch in the South of Metro Manila – specifically in SM Southmall.
Owned by Frost Five Inc., a company that was set up by friends Abi, Kim and Gerry, BLK 513 became the talk of the town when it opened last year, thanks to the unique color of its bestseller, the frozen yogurt enhanced using activated charcoal. For their newest branch, the brand decided to open at SM Southmall to make it easier for everyone to have access to their now famous frozen treat.
A cup of this frozen yogurt doesn’t only give a nice play of colors that contrasts with its unusual grey swirl; it’s devouring on a dessert while it does a lot for the body!
