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 !

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.

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 🙁 . 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 Gum 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 😉 .
