Did you know that MAGGI is named after its great inventor?

Over a century ago, back in 1884, a genius called Julius Maggi invented a powdered pea and bean soup, to provide nutritious, easy to prepare food for busy women who worked in factories and didnt have time to prepare healthy meals. This new product really improved the nutrition of common people, and he followed this first MAGGI product two years later with the invention of ready-to-use soups and liquid seasoning. But he didnt stop there! Soon afterwards, Julius Maggi perfected bouillon concentrates, first in capsules, then in cubes.More than 100 years later, MAGGI is still a byword for top quality products that combine healthy and varied nutrition, fast and easy preparation and affordable prices.

The brand is popular in India, South Africa, Brazil, Nepal, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and the Philippines in several countries, it is also known as

"maggi mee" (mee is Indonesian/Malaysian for noodles). Maggi noodles are part of

the Maggi family, a Nestl brand of instant soups, stocks, and noodles. In Malaysia, there are fried noodles made from maggi noodles known as Maggi goreng. Maggi noodles recently introduced a new variety of its noodles, to cater for the health conscious like 'No MSG', 'Less Salt', and 'No Trans fat'. A wholewheat flour based noodle variation marketed by the name "Vegetable Atta Noodles" has been introduced in India (Atta flour is used in preparing most forms of wheat based breads in India) and caters to health conscious buyers wary of the refined flour used in the regular Maggi noodles. This move helps the brand in India as suburban mothers, who feed the noodles to children as an afterschool snack, are the primary customers of the brand. Recently, a line of Rice noodles and Whole wheat with pulses, carrots, beans, and onions has also been introduced in India. In fact, "Maggi" has become a genericized name for instant noodles in India and Malaysia. In mid 2008, New Zealand supermarkets introduced replacement formulations for its Beef, Oriental, and Curry flavours. A new feature is an extra sachet containing dehydrated vegetables. Maggi claims the new range contains 88% less total fat and 86% less saturated fat than the average of top-three (unnamed) 2-minute-noodle competitors. The new Maggi range also has considerably lower fat than its own previous formulation. However, the salt content has been increased by 31 percent. Consumers have not reacted well to the new formulations, complaining that they want the original chicken flavour back. Maggi noodles also produces cup noodles known as "Hot Bowl", and sells cup noodles branded "Cuppa Mania" in India.

The British Advertising Standards Authority said that the ad did not abide by the new consumer protection legislation, by which advertisers have to provide proof of health claims. They have faced criticism for double standards, adhering to standards in developed countries, but then making misleading claims in developing countries, where the legislation permits it. Maggi Noodles also contains the additives E150d and E627. E150d is sometimes made from maize, which is usually genetically modified. According to Nestle Consumer Services, "the ingredient Flavour enhancer- E627 (Sodium Guanylate) used in [Nestle's] product is made from vegetarian source i.e. from

Tapioca starch. It is not prepared from any non-vegetarian item." As also confirmed by Nestle's consumer services, all the variants of Maggi 2-Minute noodles (except chicken) are 100% vegetarian.
