Recently Nestle's Maggie Noodles was in news headlines and banned in India. It is said that the food crossed the permitted limits of chemicals such as monosodium glutamate, lead, etc.

So what are all the aftereffects on people who were using this for a few of these years? What steps can be taken to minimize the damages or aftereffects?

  • Isn't monosodium glutamate safe? – Leonardo Herrera Jun 18 '15 at 18:24
  • see this question, health.stackexchange.com/questions/1293/… – MoonMind Jun 20 '15 at 11:40
  • I don't see anything valuable there – Leonardo Herrera Jun 22 '15 at 13:33
  • We may need to wait for the right answer for that question. BTW, MSG(AKA Ajinamotto) is banned in different countries as it is unsafe. – MoonMind Jun 22 '15 at 16:39
  • That it's banned it's not a good answer, even if it were true (for what's its worth, it hasn't been banned in any country.) Linking it to obesity because it makes food taste better is as meaningful as saying that cinnamon leads to obesity because them rolls are yummy. High sodium content can be found on salt, also not banned. I have yet to see a good, meaningful study saying it's dangerous when eaten in normal consumption levels (of course it can be dangerous, you could drown if you fall into a pool filled with it.) – Leonardo Herrera Jun 22 '15 at 18:42
