Nestlé Singapore, the local arm of the Swiss food behemoth, has launched a new formulation of the Milo health food drink on the local market

Milo, which was first introduced in Singapore in the 1950s, is being replaced by Milo with Actigen E. The compound promotes the effective release of energy from the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food, said the company.

"Nestlé is committed to bringing its `Good Food, Good Life' promise to all of its consumers in Singapore," said Audrey Liow, MD of Nestlé Singapore: "and MILO with Actigen E, which is specially enhanced with a combination of vitamins and minerals, contributes to the optimal release of energy."
