Horlicks is the name of a malted milk hot drink. Horlicks Dinosaur is a Horlicks topped with a heap of powder. The drink remains popular in Malaysia and Singapore where was packed under license from SmithKline Beecham and sold in large glass and tin containers everywhere at hawker stalls. It is also available in 1.5 kg refill packs. "Taller stronger sharper" is its slogan.
Unlike similar drinks, Horlicks is not a dry blend of malt extract and milk powders. In the initial stage of manufacturing milled malted barley and wheat flour are mashed together in hot water where the starch is converted into sugars. To this sugar solution dairy powders are added. The water content is then evaporated off to form a syrup, which is dried in vacuum band driers to form a cake. This cake is milled into the finished powder. This is then fortified with vitamins and minerals.
