KUALA LUMPUR: The largest food and beverage manufacturer, Nestle Malaysia, has clarified that the information in a video on sugar content in Milo, which has been circulating over social media, is misleading.

In a statement Tuesday (Jan 30), Nestle said over 50% of the total sugar in Milo naturally comes from milk and malt.

"We keep the amount of sugar we add to a minimum – adding only 6gm of sugar for every 200ml serving, which is about one teaspoon of sugar. This is to maintain the taste that Malaysians are familiar with," the statement said.

According to the statement, Milo is made of milk, malt (barley) and cocoa powder and contains vitamins and minerals including vitamins B2, B3, B6 and C.

"We take our responsibility to produce great tasting, nutritious products very seriously," it added.
