Ovomaltine was bought by ABF[edit]

Ovomaltine is no more a Novartis brand.

Ovaltine or Ovomaltine[edit]

  • If Ovomaltine is the original name, why it is not the article title? JeDi 15:14, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Presumably because it hasn't been Ovomaltine in the UK since the early 1900's. And Ovomaltine has a redirect to ovaltine. J.P.Lon 10:10, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Also I think since very few people call it Ovomaltine, we should stick to what people commonly refer it to as. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:02, 27 September 2007 (UTC)


The article states that egg and malt were originally in the ingredients. This infers that they no longer are, but my jar clearly states that egg is still included(among other ingredients): Barley and malt extract, whey concentrate, fat reduced cocoa, sugar, calcium carbonate, hydrogenated veg. oil, magnesium carbonate, eggs, etc. J.P.Lon 10:23, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

  • A pack of ready-to-drink Ovaltine. NOTE: A different packaging and trade dress is used for Ovaltine in the United States.

Why should this sentence have to contain the "NOTE..........Ovaltine in the United States.? For one thing, it's not important, and secondly, if it really needs to be in the article, it should in another part of the article. The stats table picture could be moved to where the packaging part is to support the fact, and the second highest picture of the article could be moved to the stats table. - Up and over for a six!

  • Sounds like a job for a bold editor. Have at it! Rivertorch (talk) 02:14, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm a little confused about that caption too... is it saying that it is the packaging used in the United States, or is it the packaging used outside the United States? (talk) 01:26, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Google translates this Arabic text as "Peace be upon you and His mercy and blessings of God yet send you greeting from Libya Moataz Hamed Onbey Amoirbe Emile want to hire Aovlten (ovaltine) and thanked Please reply to Alamil". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:08, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

The name change[edit]

  • The change "Ovomaltine" to "Ovaltine" looks more like someone misunderstanding slovenly pronunciation or misreading bad handwriting. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 22:02, 6 September 2010 (UTC)


Hello, it is written

Ovomaltine was exported to England in 1909; it was a misspelling in the trademark registration that led to the name being truncated to Ovaltine in English-speaking markets.

Could you get some source(s) to confirm this information? Pamputt (talk) 02:02, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


If Thailand is the largest market, then we should have something about Ov. in Th. (talk) 14:15, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
