Health Products - Nestlé Milo

In 1934, Australian industrial chemist and inventor Thomas Mayne developed Milo and launched it at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.  Milo was then produced at a plant located in Smithtown, near Kempsey on the North Coast of New South Wales. The name was derived from the famous Ancient Greek athlete Milo of Crotona, after his legendary strength.

Milo soon became a favourite children's drink in Australia and New Zealand, and we are not sure if it was developed for Nestlé or bought by them soon after it was introduced. But it has proved a winner and is widely sold around the world today.

Most people love the taste of milo, but what's in it?

Nestlé tell us that milo has 6 essential vitamins and minerals. But it's also rich in chocolate, caffeine and sugar.  The ingredients on the label are misleading as it contains negligible protein, the protein comes from the milk that is mixed to create a drink.

Milo contains 1,760 kJ (421 calories) in every 100 grams of the powder, mostly from carbohydrates. Carbohydrates can be used for energy by the body, which is the basis of Milo being marketed as an energy drink. The high calorie content means Milo can be useful for preventing weight loss.

Milo dissolved in water has a Glycemic Index (GI) of 55, the same as Coca-Cola. However, milk has a much lower GI of 30 - 33, so mixing a very small amount of Milo into a mug of milk yields an overall GI closer to 33, and mixing a large amount of Milo into a mug of milk will give a GI closer to 55.

The Milo website states that the drink is high in calcium, iron and the vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12. Milo is advertised as containing "Actigen-E", but this is just Nestlé's trademarked name for the vitamins in the Milo recipe

This popular drink comes from the worlds largest food manufacturer. Far removed from its founding ideals, Nestlé is a giant corporation that makes an estimated 15 million percent profit on bottled water sales in Canada. It holds that water is a resource and not a human right and Nestlé is taking all legal avenues to deprive the world of free drinking water.  Nestlé also contributed a large amount of money to block genetic food labelling legislation in California,  (California’s Proposition 37 which was defeated in November 2012 after companies such as Monsanto, The Hershey Co and Nestlé outspent supporters of such labelling by $44 million to $7.3 million).

Nestlé is proving itself to be anti human in the way it does business and its time to find a substitute for milo in principal if not on science.
