Interesting Facts About Milo:

  1. Origin of Milo: Contrary to popular belief, Milo was first manufactured in Sydney, Australia, by Thomas Mayne in 1934, not in Switzerland where Nestle’s headquarters are located.
  2. Allergen Declaration: Milo contains malt, which is usually derived from gluten-containing grains. However, Nestle has found a way to eliminate gluten, making Milo suitable for those with gluten sensitivities. It is crucial to be cautious if you’re lactose intolerant due to Milo’s rich milk content.
  3. Malt vs. Cocoa Proportion: Surprisingly, Milo contains more malt than cocoa by weight, challenging the common perception of it being primarily a cocoa drink.
  4. Pronunciation: While Nigerians and many Africans pronounce “Milo” as “my-lo,” the correct pronunciation is with a long ‘i’ sound, as in “mee-lo.”
  5. Possible Addiction: Milo contains theobromine, a substance similar to caffeine found in cocoa. Consuming over 15 heaped teaspoons daily may lead to addiction, similar to the addictive properties of caffeine in coffee.
  6. Quantity of Sugar: Milo contains more sugar by weight than cocoa, malt, or milk. The sugar is not just sucrose; it includes lactose from milk and maltose from sorghum, making it a blend of natural sugars.
  7. Glycemic Index: Studies reveal that when Milo is dissolved in water, it shares the same glycemic index (55) as Coca-Cola, providing an interesting insight into its impact on blood sugar levels.


Milo’s journey from its Australian origins to becoming a global household name is marked by nutritional richness and surprising facts.
