The VRG recently reported that Nestlé Malaysia® introduced in 2009 a Nescafé® Body Partner® coffee that contained collagen (a protein usually commercially derived from fish, cow, or pig). At the time, no further information on Nestlé Malaysia’s® collagen source was available.
We received an email reply from Consumer Services Executive Zalbiah Yaakub of Nestlé Malaysia®. She wrote that “We are sorry to inform you that our Nescafé® Body Partner® products have been discontinued due to sales and marketing reasons. The collagen in Nescafé® Body Partner® products is from a fish source.”
