Anlene: Expert in bone nutrition

The expert in bone nutrition, Anlene is the leading adult milk brand across Asia and offers a range of high calcium dairy products specially formulated to encourage optimal bone health.

Anlene products are enriched with a scientifically-formulated mix of calcium and other essential bone nutrients which include vitamin D, zinc, and magnesium to ensure enhanced calcium absorption and bone strength that aid in continued mobility. Anlene has 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. 

In the past 12 months alone, Anlene has 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 Regional Audits and World Osteoporosis Day activities in various countries across the region.

Anlene is available in 17 countries across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

  • 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 have a balanced diet and get regular exercise are two key ways to help you stay fit and mobile for longer.

  • How effective is Anlene in maintaining bone health?+

    Anlene is a unique milk drink clinically proven to reduce bone loss. Anlene products are specially formulated with essential nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, zinc and magnesium which combine to assist the effective absorption of bone nutrients and help maintain bone health for continued mobility.

    Drinking Anlene or the intake of other Anlene dairy products is a convenient way to get calcium plus the other essential vitamins and nutrients you need to help protect your bones.

  • 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. 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 a fracture. There is no cure for the disease so you need to make sure you’re doing enough to look after your bones and take preventive action from an early age.

  • What is a bone scan and the Anlene Bone Health Check?+

    The Anlene Bone Health Check conducts free bone scans that use ultrasound technology to assess your bone health. The bone scan is painless, takes around two minutes and provides an accurate indication of your bone’s quality and strength. 

    We provide free Anlene Bone Health Checks regularly at events, supermarkets and health centres across Asia and the Middle East and have carried out more than five million free bone scans in the past 12 months.

  • What is the recommended daily serving of Anlene?+

    Taking just two servings a day provides the recommended dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D for most adults.
