Is MAGGI® Halal?

All MAGGI® products catered to our Middle East and North Africa consumers are provided with a “Halal Slaughtering” certificate from the factories where our chicken and meat products are produced.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and Safety

Glutamate is found naturally in our bodies and in protein-containing foods, such as cheese, milk, meat, peas and mushrooms. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) for the food industry is made through a fermenting process using starch, sugar beets, tapioca-sago, sugar cane or molasses and it obtained FDA’s GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status since 1959, when consumed in moderate amounts as part of the diet. There is also no scientific evidence suggesting that MSG has any adverse effect on consumers’ health as long as it is consumed normally as part of a diet.

It is important to mention that the amounts of MSG used as a food enhancer in MAGGI® products are in line with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

We would like to highlight that NESTLÉ® manufacturing processes are performed under stringent measures, and that the quality and safety of our products in addition to the well-being of our consumers are a non-negotiable priority.

Fat Content in MAGGI® Stocks

This table clearly indicates the Nutrition Information table for MAGGI® Chicken Stock. You can easily check the total fat content per 100g and per 167ml serving. Considering that the stew will serve 6 persons, the fat in the recipe coming from the stock is very small. Nutritionists recommend managing the amount of fat in the diet to not exceed 30% of the total daily energy intake. Therefore, it is recommended to watch for the amount of fat (such as oil and butter) used while cooking, choosing healthy lean ingredients, and the right cooking method that does not require large quantities of fat.

.

.

MAGGI® Cubes Salt Content

A healthy adult is recommended to consume no more than 5g of salt per day as per the latest recommendations of the World Health Organization as part of a daily healthy diet. This translates into 2.0g of sodium per day. 2 cubes of MAGGI® Chicken Stock are used to prepare a 1 liter broth, which is commonly needed for preparing a main course that serves an average of 6 people. Therefore the quantity of salt that is present in 1 liter of broth is spread in the entire recipe serving 5-6 persons. A 167ml of prepared broth using MAGGI® Chicken Stock contains an average of 0.6g of sodium. We do not recommend adding more salt while cooking, since MAGGI® Stock has the perfect combination of natural herbs, spices and salt to enhance the natural taste of healthy ingredients making it easier and tastier to prepare dishes without having to add any extra salt.

MAGGI® has also provided a Chicken Stock that contains 30% Less Salt; MAGGI® Chicken Less Salt, if you desire preparing dishes with less salt, or if you are using fresh ingredients that naturally contain salt such as: Fish/Salted Cheese/Soya Sauce.

Middle Eastern governments have strict regulations about importing meat-based products that meet Islamic food regulation standards.

Soups

.

What are the benefits of MAGGI® Soups?

MAGGI® Soups are prepared by dehydrating vegetables - exposing them to hot air and allowing them to dry - a process that has been used for centuries in the Middle East to dry limes and dates. After dehydration, spices, salt, herbs and wheat (for texture) are added to the dried vegetables. In a similar process for chicken soups, Halal slaughtered chicken meat is dehydrated and added to the rest of the ingredients. No preservatives are added to MAGGI® Soups, thanks to the multi-layered packaging that isolates the ingredients from external elements such as humidity and light - two factors that allow bacteria to develop. This also protects the ingredients from color fading, so MAGGI® Soups don't just taste delicious, they even look delicious!

.

MAGGI® Soups Salt Content

Over the past couple of years, MAGGI® Soups have been periodically decreasing its sodium content which is currently in compliance with the standards ensuring good taste and nutritional balance. A healthy adult requires 5g of salt per day as per the latest recommendations of the World Health Organization as part of a healthy diet. This translates into 2.0g of sodium per day. 1 sachet of MAGGI® Excellence Chicken Soup with Corn, for example, is used to prepare half a liter of soup, intended to serve 2 people (1 serving=250 ml). 250 ml of prepared MAGGI® Chicken Soup contains 0.66g of sodium.

In addition, it is important to note that different people have different salt thresholds (ability to identify salt taste). As a consequence, people may develop a tendency to prefer foods with lower concentrations of salt.

We hope you continue enjoying our wide range of MAGGI® products!

.

Preservatives in MAGGI® Soups

Due to the process of dehydration, we do not need to add any preservatives. Furthermore, the multi-layered packaging protects the content from any deterioration caused by the external elements, such as humidity and light. These are 2 agents that help in the development of bacteria, change in appearance, texture and taste of the ingredients used.

.

Traces of Ingredients in MAGGI® 11 Vegetables Soup

The reason why we write "traces of milk" on the label is not because it contains milk, but simply because in the production area, there are milk containing ingredients used for other products and there could be traces left behind.

Therefore, to prevent issues for people with allergies, we take precautions and write "traces of milk" on the label.

Nonetheless, the actual product does not contain any milk ingredients.

Hope this clarifies your concern.
