“Nestle has reassured me that they adhere to stringent testing for quality and safety and are working with the authorities closely,” she said.

Maggi recently came under the scanner after samples collected by Uttar Pradesh Food Safety and Drug Administration were reported to be containing Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead more than the permissible limits.

Nestle India was asked to withdraw a batch of the popular snack from the market by the authorities in Uttar Pradesh recently.

Disputing the claim, Nestle India had said, “The company does not agree with the order and is filing the requisite representations with the authorities.”

      Maggi 2 - minute noodles in India contains hydrolysed groundnut protein , It contains MSG ( Monosodium glutamate ) used as a flavor enhancer , which is made using Bactosoytone , itself made from soy protein using a catalyst enzyme porcine (taken from intestine of Pig ) Hydrolysed vegetable protein can contain high levels of glutamate , but still mentions “ NO ADDED MSG ” on the pack .. According to the United States FDA , this practice is misleading to consumers , as hydrolysed protein leads to formation of monosodium glutamate MSG after cooking ...sources@

            What else would Nestle say?.people like Madhuri endorses things just for money. Two other products that needs to be banned are coco cola and Pepsi.
