Since then many teams and athletes have been using PeptoPro® for the Olympic Games.

PeptoPro® was launched in South Africa in 2007.

Science related to MixMe®-In 1996, a group of UNICEF consultants determined that the standard iron drops were not effective, as adherence to treatment remained poor. They called for a simple, inexpensive and potentially viable new method to provide micronutrients (including iron) to populations at risk. Around 2005 researchers at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children have developed a cheap, simple-to-use supplement, called Sprinkles, that could achieve this goal. This supplement was also referred to as Micronutrient powder (MNP’s).

MixMe® is the same formulation and was launched in South Africa in 2014.
