Ovaltine has been an integral part of life in the UK for more than 100 years. Loved by kids and grown-ups alike. Delicious recipes, some fun facts and many ways to add a bit more comfort and wellbeing to our everyday lives.

Ovaltine - Malted Drinks

Ovaltine is totally caffeine free which makes it the perfect bedtime drink. We love its delicious 'chocolatey' malt taste - cosiness, relaxation and comfort in a mug. Super easy to make and the best bit - it is full of vitamins and minerals, too!

Malted Drinks Fun Facts

  • Recipe originally developed in Berne, Switzerland.
  • Original name: Ovomaltine - however, when the drink was first exported to Britain in 1909 someone got the spelling wrong (Brits and foreign languages!) on the trademark application form. That's why its called Ovaltine in all English-speaking countries. 
  • Over the years the formulation was changed which is why there are different versions available around the world. The UK version contains malt, milk, cocoa powder, minerals & vitamins.
  • Tastes great hot or cold!
  • Ovaltine is an anagram for 'Vital One'.
