Goodness of Milk
Growing Up Milk
Milk consists largely of water. Milk powder
is milk from which this water has been extracted. The powder
does however contain all the important nutrients from milk.
All you need to do to reconstitute the milk is to add water
to the milk powder.
For generations, Dutch Lady has been proud
to bring parents high quality nutrition for their young children
through its Growing Up Milk formulas. We were the first in
the world to offer consumers growing up milk formulation,
and we are constantly guided by our international and local
research & development efforts, to continue developing
breakthrough innovations that provide the best dairy nutrition
for our future generation.
Essential nutrient in Growing
At Dutch Lady Malaysia we strive to offer
Growing Up Milk range of products that is nutritionally designed
for optimal growth, ensuring that nutrients are well balanced
for a growing up child in Malaysia.
Added goodies such as DHA,
By continuos research we develop new technologies
to enhance our formulas. Recently we have upgraded Dutch Lady’s
Growing Up Milk with 5XDHA. DHA or docosahexaenoic acid is
an essential fat needed for the growth of brain and is needed
to maintain a healthy brain function. While this specific
fat is so essential in the early years, young children can
not synthesize DHA sufficiently in the levels needed. So therefore
children need to have a direct intake of DHA, provided in
their daily diet. But sometimes it is difficult to ensure
that your child eats well balanced, often young children can
be fuzzy eaters. Therefore, Growing Up Milk is a good carrier
to bring the needed DHA to growing up children. A healthy
brain development results in improved focus, learning, behaviour
and cognitive functions like perception, thinking, reasoning
Different types of sugars
and the role of sugar in Growing Up Milk
Sugars like natural sugar and natural added sugar are types
of Carbohydrates. They are important because Carbohydrates
are a main source of energy to ensure the healthy growth &
development of the body and brain of growing up children.
Natural sugar called lactose can be found in milk while natural
added sugar comes from plants (described as added sugar because
it’s not found naturally in milk). In terms of calories,
there is no difference between the two. In fact, when you
take sugar naturally found in milk (lactose), it also counts
as part of your total sugar consumption.
Dutch Lady's Growing Up Milk is nutritionally designed using
a combination of naturally present sugars like lactose, and
added natural sugars.
Based on years of research we have found
that Malaysian children can digest milk best if we respect
the natural ratio of lactose in milk. From our research, we
found that increasing lactose to a level that is not naturally
found in milk may cause digestive problems like diarrhoea
and bloating (due to too much gas).
Therefore optimally balanced
types of sugars found in our Dutch Lady Growing Up Milk formula
will make the milk easily digestible for children, while providing
the energy that they need. At Dutch Lady, we believe that
milk brings your children essential nutrients; therefore we
find it of utmost importance that many Malaysian children
can enjoy the benefits of milk.
Dutch Lady Growing Up Milk formula is developed in line with
local legislation and well within the Malaysian Recommended
Nutrient Intake (RNI) 2005 and WHO (2003) recommendation.
