"The Perfect Food"
"Good Food is the Origin of

In thla country wa have th ideal food. It ia Malta-Vita, the food
whica gives to the body and brain perfect strength and perfect health.
It ia often called "The Perfect Food" becaua it contain every
food element the body needs, and in the eaact proportion whicb
physiologists say are necessary to health and strength.
Malta-Vita is the whole of the best whit wheat, mixed with fineat
barley malt extract. This is the reason it is so rich in vitalising-, re
freshing, muscle-building, blood-making food elements. Ths wheat,
after being thoroughly cleaned, is cooked and steamed until the starch
cells break down. It ia then mixed with the malt extract and rolled
out into wafer-Uke flakes, every flake a whole grain of wheat. The
malt extract, an active digestive agent, converts the gelatinized
starch of th wheat into maltose, or malt sugar. Maltose is very
nutritious snd is easily digested even by the weakest stomach.
Malta-Vita is baked in great ovens until it is crisp and brown,
ready to eat. That is how it comes to you, th moat strengthening,
most delicious and cleanest food in th world. No other food ha that
delicate, satisfying Malta-Vita taste. Try some today with milk or
