What do you mean by “low GI”?

GI is short for Glycemic Index, a ranking system that shows how carbohydrates in a food affect a person’s blood glucose (sugar) levels.

Our bodies – including our brain, organs and muscles – break down carbohydrates to create fuel, which helps us think straight, work hard and play happily.

Foods with a “low GI” score have carbohydrates in them that our bodies digest and absorb slowly, allowing blood sugar levels to rise gradually, and extending energy levels over a longer period of time. High-GI foods, on the other hand, are quick to digest and absorb, leading to significant changes in blood sugar levels, which is thought to be less healthy.

Ovaltine is a low-GI food and is certified by the GI Foundation.

Source of
protein

Necessary for normal growth and development ‡

Learn more

Why is protein important?

Estimates suggest that about half of the human body’s dry weight is made up of protein. It is needed to repair and build your body’s tissues and also assists with maintaining proper pH and fluid balance.

Proteins have also been found to keep your immune system strong, transport and store nutrients and can act as an energy source, if needed. Collectively, these functions make protein one of the most important nutrients for your health, and a necessary requirement for normal growth and development in children.

Calcium

Essential for building healthy bones ‡

Learn more

Why is calcium so important?

Our body cannot produce its own calcium, so it’s important we get enough from the foods we eat. Calcium is an essential nutrient which helps our body build our bones, in fact, around 99% of the calcium in our body is stored in our bones and teeth.

 

Calcium rich food sources:

There are many foods and drinks we can consume to ensure we have a sufficient supply of calcium in our diet. The best source of calcium is from dairy, including milk, yoghurt and cheese.

 

How can drinking Ovaltine help with my daily calcium consumption:

When you drink a glass of Ovaltine with skim milk, you’re consuming 50% of your recommended daily intake of calcium**. A delicious way to keep your bones strong and healthy.

LOVED BY AUSTRALIANS

Our scrumptious milk drink has been around for more than 100 years and Australians have been enjoying it for almost as long.


Ovaltine came to our shores in 1919. It was invented by a Swiss chemist at the beginning of the century who wanted to find a way to reduce malnourishment among children in his country.


Today the recipe has changed to specifically suit Australian tastes, making Ovaltine a delicious treat which is packed with added vitamins and minerals, and loved by kids and adults all over Australia.
