Radio-Malt was an early to mid-20th century brand of malt extract preparation that followed the Minadex trend. Produced by British Drug Houses, it contained Vitamin A, aneurine hydrochloride, riboflavin, and calciferol. The contents were sickly sweet, with a consistency between molasses and treacle. It is much loved by the classic character Molesworth.
Additional recommended knowledge
A favorite of film producer and politician David Puttnam, Radio Malt was often used in English boarding schools in an attempt to change skinny, young coeds into prettier roundness and given to post-World War II children to give them more bulk. Radio malt still is being sold at Post-War World - a store in England.
