So, let’s take a look on the top reasons that informs us about the unhealthy aspects of ‘Maggi’.

1. Maggi Does Not Have Enough Nutritional Value

Nutritional Value

Maggi is definitely a perfect quick bite meal and especially amongst youth and the corporate world. But did you know that the food item is highly processed and lacks nutritive value? Rich in carbohydrates, sodium and other food additives, Maggi is extremely low on necessary constituents such as fibre, vitamins and minerals.

2. Loaded With Harmful Preservatives


Maggi is permissible to use acid regulators, flavor enhancers, colors, stabilizers, anti-oxidants, emulsifiers, flour treatment agents, preservatives (to preserve them) and anti-caking agents for its making. Do we really need to understand the harmful effects of these additives on our metabolic system?

3. Chance Of Miscarriage


Maggi noodles appear to be the working women’s favorite dish. But in the first trimester of pregnancy, the intake of noodles, not only can put in risk the development process of the fetus but also it can lead to miscarriage

4. Responsible For Obesity

The major components of Maggi noodles are fat, carbohydrate and high amount of sodium. All of these are responsible for obesity.
