Eating Maggi Everyday.


So, What Will Happen if you Eat Maggi Everyday? Maggi products help bring out the best in every meal. Quick and easy solutions – like bouillons, soups, seasonings and sauces – to aid cooking and add flavour.

It also has a incredibly dangerous side.

Here is the review written by a Food Industry expert with complete confidence:

It is extremely harmful to have Maggi Noodles everyday. However, this is not because Maggi Noodles contain wax or any other non-edible ingredients. No major food company would run afoul of regulations in such a way.

Having Maggi on a daily basis is a bad idea for the following reasons:

Maggi is made from All-purpose refined flour (aka Maida in India)

All purpose refined flour is essentially whole wheat stripped off all its fibre and nutrients, till what is left behind is a smooth flour which has just simple carbs, i.e. the equivalent of Sugar. Simple carbs, when consumed in excess, have a tendency to accumulate around the abdomen as fat. Therefore, consuming excess Maggi is bad for you.

Maggi is double deep-fried to give it that non-sticky, waxy appearance

The process for making Maggi noodles involves deep-frying the ingredients not once, but twice! Most of us don’t realize this, since the product doesn’t have an oily appearance. There are several videos on youtube that will substantiate this for you. The excess fat in the noodles is what gives them the waxy appearance and prevents them from sticking together while the product is hot. Again, excess fat creates those rolls around the waistline.

Maggi contains – MSG

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that’s “generally recognized as safe,” but its use remains controversial. For this reason, when MSG is added to food, the FDA requires that it be listed on the label.

MSG has been used as a food additive for decades. Over the years, the FDA has received many anecdotal reports of adverse reactions to foods containing MSG. These reactions — known as MSG symptom complex — include:
  • Headache
  • Flushing
  • Sweating
  • Facial pressure or tightness
  • Numbness, tingling or burning in the face, neck and other areas
  • Rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations)
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Weakness

Maggi is very rich in Sodium

Maggi contains a high amount of salt, and is hence very rich in Sodium. Salt is an excellent flavour enhancer and really helps bring out that amazing maggi taste. However, the ills of excess sodium are well documented, including water retention (causes puffiness of the face and body), dehydration and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Mostly, the ills of consuming too much Maggi are very similar to consuming too much of any other fast food, i.e. lack of substantial nutrition, an expanding waistline and, in the long run, damage to the cardiovascular system.

Like other answers have mentioned, it’s ok to have Maggi once in a while, as long as it is balanced out with other nutritious food. But do yourself a favour and try to minimise consumption. So, now you really like to eat Maggi?
