Maggi Oats Noodles-Is It Really Healthy?

I planned to review Maggi Oats Noodles since the time I saw Madhuri Dixit doing the advertisement. Maggi oats noodles is being promoted as ‘Healthy Breakfast’. Nestle has made a breakthrough with Maggi Oats Noodles after launching ‘healthy’ Atta maggi ! A lot of my friends shifted from Masala Maggi to Atta Maggi. I can bet they would have not read the labels, phew !

Let’s talk about Maggi Oats Noodles !

Let the ingredients talk first –

Maggi Oats Noodles-Is It Really Healthy (3)

Don’t get confused by 51% oats. Its 51% of 78.4% which is close to 40%. That means Oats composition is only 40% . I fail to understand how it could be Oats maggi when 60% composition is other flours and ingredients.

Let’s look at nutrients list –

Honestly I don’t see anything interesting here. Its as junk as a burger or a pasta. I thought this could be better than Maggi Masala noodles, so I compared with that too.

Maggi Oats Noodles Review

Maggi Oats noodles has more calories, and tiny winy extra fibre which Nestle has highlighted thinking we would miss whopping carbohydrates πŸ™ . It has more that 402 kcal per 100 grams which is way too high considering people have maggi as snack, not as a meal. For women, who consume 1200-1300 calories a day, Maggi is one third the calories you can consume a day !

It has sugar, starch and guar gum too. Guar GumΒ is a thickening agent and is not too healthy. It has wheat gluten, so people who can’t tolerate gluten, please stay away from this.

For weight watchers

If you wish to adopt Maggi Oats noodles for breakfast, its the worst option possible. You could have a mouth water paneer parantha for breakfast, it would be way nutritious than this maggi.

For low carbers

It has whopping carbs, hence should be avoided. In case you wish to have this as a cheat meal, please ditch this and have masala maggi or your favorite pizza or pasta instead πŸ˜‰ .

  1. I too wanted to pick it once, but end up leaving it on the supermarket rack after seeing 446 kcal. πŸ˜€
    I feel the chotu maggi with heavy dose of beans, carrot, peas, cabbage (i dont add cauliflowers) and some chicken sausage slices or scrambled egg is way better and healthier as full meal.

      • I do not see that happening anytime soon! All the top-notch actors have each picked up a brand of cola drink. That’s the upsetting considering carbonated drinks spoil our health so much.
        If ever the celebs think this way, they should really start with not endorsing carbonated drinks.
        Aaj kuch tufani karte hai, and guess the tufani is spoiling your health for a cola burrp!

        Uff !

  2. In the ingredients list, there is an item called ‘Flavour enhancer (635)’. The No 635 is an E-Number and used to classify chemicals used in food. I checked on the net (Food Info and Wikipedia) and found that E 635 is mainly produced from animals and Fish. So does this make it Vegetarian? Manufacturers need to state that these chemicals are not sourced from animals and fish.

  3. I purchased 2 big oats maggi packet without checking ingredients nd found around 40%-50% saturated fat…. it has trans fat also….
