This growing-up milk serves as a nutritional safety net by providing a healthy complement to the diet at a time when children tend to exhibit their independence at mealtime.
S-26® PROMISE GOLD®, formulated with Biofactors System™ which is a scientific approach to balancing key high-quality nutrients. Its focus is on both the quality and the appropriate quantity of each nutrient to support a child’s mind, visual, development and physical growth at a specific stage of life.
S-26® Promise Gold®:
- Is a nutrient-enriched growing-up milk that delivers 226 kcal per 240 mL serving, providing the energy needs of children 4 years and above
- Has a heart-healthy fat blend that accounts for 31% of its energy content, which is in line with Malaysia Recommended Nutrient Intake (MRNI) for children to transition to low-fat dairy products
- Is fortified to contain balanced levels of the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids AA and DHA to help support visual and cognitive development
- Contains whey protein that consists of a high quality protein, alpha-lactalbumin which is readily digested, absorbed, and tolerated
- Supplies 54% of its energy content from carbohydrates, a proportion in line with Malaysia Recommended Nutrient Intake (MRNI) for energy from macronutrients in children
- Is sucrose-free to help support healthy eating habits during early childhood
- Contains a soluble dietary fiber, oligofructose, to help support GI tract health
- S-26® PROMISE GOLD® provides at least 100% of the US Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) for vitamin A, iron, iodine and zinc for less than the recommended intake by older children when fed as directed (3 servings per day). It also meets 100% of the 2008 AAP recommendation for vitamin D intake when fed as directed (3 servings per day)
- Is fortified with the carotenoid lutein, which acts in the retina as an antioxidant and can help shield developing eyes as a filter against high-energy blue light
- Contains carotenes, which are natural antioxidants with immune-enhancing effects
- Contains vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, and phosphorus, which make an integrative contribution to bone health
- Provides at least 100% of the US DRI for iron for young children, when 3 servings (720 mL) per day are consumed, to help prevent iron deficiency, which may lead to adverse effects on physical and mind development
- Provides at least 48–72% of the US DRI for young children for most nutrients when consumed as directed, thereby supplying an ideal complement to the diet and serving as a nutritional safety net during a period of unpredictable eating habits
