An expert in bone nutrition, Anlene is the leading adult milk brand across Asia, offering dairy products specially formulated to encourage optimal bone health.

Anlene products are enriched with a scientifically-formulated complex of essential bone nutrients which include vitamin D, zinc, and magnesium to ensure enhanced absorption and bone strength. Anlene also provides twice as much calcium as regular milk. 

Anlene has a 20-year track record as the leading bone health product in Asia. The brand’s mission is to raise awareness of osteoporosis so people can take steps to prevent it through better nutrition and exercise. 

We have conducted more than five million free bone scans across Asia and the Middle East, and partnered with local osteoporosis societies around the world to help raise awareness of maintaining bone health. 

To date, Fonterra has spent more than US$50 million on bone health research and US$15 million directly on the development of Anlene, increasing our understanding of osteoporosis and the role of dairy in its prevention. The experts behind Anlene have funded, and been involved with 18 clinical trials relating to bone health.

Fonterra has worked with the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) since 2007 and became IOF’s Regional Nutrition Partner Asia-Pacific in 2010. The partnership is based on a shared vision to increase bone health awareness and education in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. Some of the activities Fonterra has supported include the Asia and Middle East/Africa Bone Health Audits and World Osteoporosis Day activities in various countries across the region.

  • 5. Osteoporosis only affects older people so I don’t need Anlene until I reach my mid-forties. Am I right?+

    Our bones are living tissues which break down and regenerate. Our bone mass peaks when we are around 30 years of age, after which our bones can begin to break down faster than they can rebuild themselves. From this point on, without adequate nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, bones can become thinner and more brittle – which can lead to bone diseases such as osteoporosis. 

    Osteoporosis is often referred to as the ‘silent disease’ as people often don’t know they have it until they suffer from the first fracture. There is no cure for the disease so you need to make sure you’re doing enough to look after your bones from an early age.

  • 6. Apart from consuming Anlene daily, what else can I do to ensure healthy bones?+

    Making the right lifestyle choices will go a long way towards helping prevent the onset of osteoporosis later in life. 

    Making sure you’re eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise are two key ways to help you stay fit and active for longer.
