An Infant Food

Before coming to America in 1873, James Horlick worked for London pharmacist Gustav Mellin, who had developed an infant food made of wheat flour and malt. Mellin's Food, which was mixed with both water and milk, became popular on both sides of the Atlantic.

Although malted milk eventually became most popular as an ingredient in milk shakes and confections, the company did not totally abandon the infant food market.
