How Was "Ovaltine" Named?

From Wikipedia:

Ovaltine (registered trademark of Associated British Foods) is a brand of milk flavoring product made with sugar (except in Switzerland), malt extract, cocoa, and whey, by Wander AG, a subsidiary of Novartis Consumer Goods. It was developed in Switzerland, where it is known by its original name, Ovomaltine (from ovum, Latin for "egg", and malt, originally its main ingredients). The person credited with its original formulation is Dr. Albert Wander, son of the company's founder Dr. Georg Wander. Both Drs. Wander spent their lives working with malted barley extracts as nutritious food supplements. Also remember that "Ovaltine" is an anagram for "Vital One".
