Shocking & Fun Facts You Should Know About Milo (Drink)


2. Not Everybody Can Drink Milo (Allergen Declaration)

The major ingredients Milo is made from are Cocoa, Milk, Malt and Sugar; it is there on the ingredients list on Milo sachets or cans. Malt is mostly made from Barley or Sorghum and these grains are known to contain Gluten, which some people are hypersensitive to. But is seems Nestlé may have found a way around their product such that it does not contain gluten. I am saying this because it is not declared on their package.

I have talked about allergies in one post, under which I mentioned gluten, eggs, milk, soy milk, etc., as allergens to some people. In another post, I mentioned that gluten-rich foods could contribute to abdominal bloating, causing stomach protrusion. Lactose-rich foods such as milk could contribute too, therefore, people that have lactose intolerance may be hypersensitive to Milo because it contains Milk.

Nestlé has done a good job by clearly stating the allergens that could be present in Milo as follows;

  1. If adverts pronounce the name the correct way, people will catch on. Except Nestlé in Nigeria don’t know the coRect pronunciation.

  2. Milo used to be my best, in fact, only beverage for decades, but of late, I discovered its too sugary. Even the added sugar does not dissolve and you could see heavy deposit of sugar grains at the cup bottom.
    I had to opt for a less sugary Ovaltine.
