MAGGI Noodles and MSG concerns

5 June 2015

MAGGI Noodles are completely safe and have been trusted in India for over 30 years.

The trust of our consumers and the safety of our products is our first priority. Unfortunately, recent developments and unfounded concerns about the product have led to an environment of confusion for the consumer, to such an extent that we have decided to withdraw the product off the shelves, despite the product being safe.

We promise that the trusted MAGGI Noodles will be back in the market as soon as the current situation is clarified.

We understand that consumers are concerned by reports that the authorities have found MSG in MAGGI Noodles.

We do not add the flavour enhancer MSG (E621) to MAGGI Noodles sold in India. However the product contains glutamate derived from hydrolysed groundnut protein, onion powder and wheat flour. Glutamate produces a positive test result in a test for MSG.

We are fully engaged with the authorities in efforts to resolve the situation.
