At Nestlé, it is always our endeavour to provide consumers with complete information about the ingredients used in your favourite MAGGI Noodles.
Please be assured that MAGGI Noodles and its Masala Tastemaker do not contain Monosodium Glutamate (MSG/E621). Our stringent quality standards and processes ensure that the ingredients and additives used in our products comply with food regulations.
As a part of our Allergen Management Plan, the statement “MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF SOYA or MILK” is mentioned on every pack of MAGGI Noodles. Though Milk is not an ingredient used in the manufacturing of MAGGI Noodles, other products containing Milk/Milk Solids are manufactured in the same facility.
If there is a significant chance of cross contact from equipment that cannot be ruled out, then it is indicated on the pack as precautionary labelling. Hence, the statement is mentioned on each pack of MAGGI Noodles.
Please be assured that your favourite MAGGI Noodles are absolutely safe for consumption. Since Lead occurs naturally in the Earth's crust and is also present in the air, soil and dust, there can be minute traces of the element found in all manufactured products.
The level of Lead in MAGGI Noodles is well within the prescribed limit specified by the governing authorities. So feel free to enjoy it all, without a worry.
Please be assured that all vegetarian products manufactured by Nestlé carry the 'Green Dot' symbol. This indicates that the product has passed all regulatory tests to be categorised as Vegetarian.
MAGGI Chicken Noodles are the only non-vegetarian variant available under the MAGGI 2-Minute Noodles line. This is also indicated on the pack with a 'Brown Dot' symbol.
Since its launch in 1983, MAGGI Noodles has enjoyed your immense love and trust. We cherish this trust shown by you and assure you that MAGGI Noodles are completely safe for consumption. And we recommend you to enjoy your favourite MAGGI Noodles as a light meal, as part of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
MAGGI has been the pioneer of 2 minute noodles and we have stayed true to that claim for the last 34 years. If you follow the suggested method of preparation, as mentioned on the back of every pack, it would take 2 minutes to cook the noodles. However, it is very common for consumers to customize the method of preparation a little bit, depending on their style and choice. For example, the quantity of water used varies a lot depending on how soupy one wants their MAGGI to be. Such personal touches may cause the cooking time to vary.
Follow this simple method to prepare a bowl in your microwave, within minutes.
You will need:
MAGGI Noodles + Masala (1 pack) + Water (210 ml i.e. approx. 1½ cups)
- A deep glass bowl
1. Place noodle cake, broken into 4 pieces, in a deep glass bowl.
2. Sprinkle Tastemaker Masala onto the noodles.
3. Pour 1 ½ cups (210 ml) of water over the noodle cake.
4. Microwave on high power for 3 minutes.
5. Stir and microwave for another 3 minutes.
6. Stir again and serve hot.
MAGGI Noodles are cooked exactly how you prepare your breads/rotis at home. We just do it at an industrial scale to make sure you get the same experience, every single time.
The preparation of MAGGI Noodles starts with mixing of flour, water etc. in a mixer to produce the dough. The dough, then goes through a series of rollers to form a thin sheet, which is then artfully cut into fine noodle strands. These strands are then waved, folded and cooked to form the final noodle cake. The noodle cakes along with Masala Tastemaker sachets are then wrapped and sealed in packs which we hope you enjoy with every bite.
Your favourite MAGGI Noodles are indeed fried. This helps you cook the noodles in 2 minutes at home, and also adds stability to its shelf life.
Frying is a traditional method of cooking which gives better palatability and mouth feel. During the manufacturing process, MAGGI Noodles are fried for about 1-1.5 minutes. This lowers the moisture levels in the noodles, thus stabilising its shelf life and reducing the final cooking time to 2 minutes.
Palm oil is used for its various physical properties and composition, which impart desirable sensory characteristics and stability to the food items prepared with it. It has approximately 50% Saturated Fatty Acids, 40% Monounsaturated Fatty Acids (MUFA) and approximately 10% Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA). Palm oil has many food applications, where it can be safely used and consumed as a part of the end dish/food, managed by the right portion size.
At Nestlé we make sure that all the products are of correct portions and can be made part of a diversified, balanced diet to deliver all nutrients in right amounts as per nutritional guidelines.
