Why was Maggi banned?
You may have found your favourite 2-minute Maggi noodle very tasty,
but fact of the matter is that it contains harmful chemicals which
could be dangerous to your health. Reportedly, the company may face
ban in India after as it was recently found that the noodle Maggi
contains high amount of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead.
Experts say that the chemical is harmful if often used,
especially for children. It could cause weight gain,
brain damage and liver inflammation and
other serious health implications.
Are MAGGI Noodles safe?
Yes. In addition to our regular testing of the finished product and
raw materials, we have carried out extensive tests of our MAGGI Noodles in India.
To date, Nestlé India has tested more than 2,700 product samples of MAGGI Noodles,
including 1,100 samples at independent accredited labs in India and abroad.
These tests represent more than 165 million or 16.5 Crore packets of noodles in total.
These tests found that levels of lead in the products were within the food safety
limits specified by the Indian authorities, which is why we are saying the
products are safe for consumption.
