    Default Maggie & its effects......!

    For all who love eating Maggi


    DO NOT IGNORE THIS ....... Especially those fond of Maggi.......

    'CORRECT WAY OF COOKING NOODLES'

    The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health. `Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles
    into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it's ready to eat..

    This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles.

    By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structures of the MSG
    causing it to be toxic.

    The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to
    excrete the wax after you have taken the noodles.

    CORRECT METHOD :

    1. boil the noodles in a pot with water.
    2. once the noodles is cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax.
    3.. boil another pot of water till boiling and put the noodles into the hot boiling water and then shut the fire.
    4. only at this stage when the fire is off, and while the water is very hot, put the ingredient with the powder into the water, to make noodle
    soup.
    5. however, if you need dry noodles, take out the noodles and add the ingredient with the powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

    Dietician's Note: If you buy plain hakka noodles which you make initially need to boil in water and discard the water. This will soften
    the noodles but to prevent it from sticking we need to add a tbsp of oil and also the noodles are deep fried partially to make it crunchy and
    then dusted with flour to prevent it from sticking while boiling. Hence when you buy the noodles they are already made unhealthy and this
    is the type we use to make stir fry noodles and the regular maggi too is made the same way plus they add MSG/ ajinomoto and other chemical
    preservatives.

    A large number of patient with the ages ranging from 18-24 years are ending up with pancreatitis either as a swelling or infection of the
    pancreas due to regular consumption of instant noodles..... If the frequency is more than 3 times a week, then it is very hazardous...


    Got this in mail thought to ask you people's views on it..

    What about the word "instant" . People like eating maggi cause it takes less time to get ready and that too very easily.

    Maggi is tastes good, but it is not good for the digestive system as said earlier, the stuff used to make maggi sits in stomach and is not easily digested thus ruining your digestive track and your eating habits. Its good to have it once a while but do not make a regular habit of eating it, especially dont skip your regular meals for maggi.

    Thanks! I didn't know this. I love maggi but fortunately, don't eat it too much. I used to have it when I was a kid.

    Yes, kids love eating maggi, which they shouldn't because they are at their growing stage and require proper diet which provides essential nutrients to the body and are easily digestable.

    I still remember those days...When I was in US, maggie was my main food as it was easy to cook...Just put the maggie in a bowl with water, add the masala & put it in the microwave oven...I took around 45 packets of maggie from here.

    that area should have plenty of Indian stores.

    Then there is the Bay area which has more
    Indian stores that have maggie than most Indian cities ;-)

    Nice thread Kiran, Repo added.

    It's strange that none of us opened a thread on maggie until kiran.

    I love maggie,though i know the disadvantages so normally takes it once a week, but i enjoy it a alot.
    Thanks for mentioning a safer way to cook it. I will try it.

    as per information available on the packing, Maggi DOES NOT contain MSG while both Top Ramen and Wai-Wai noddles contain "Added MSG".

    But yes, the better method of having maggi is to first fry some chopped veggies and then add a little water and boil maggi in it (and throw the "tastemaker" to the dust-bin)

    also better try pasta than maggi

    Yeah! Pasta is definitely better than maggi. I love one with pesto and sun dried tomato.

    make sure u don't boil the content of the flavour packet and add it only at the very end. or it can have toxic effects also.
