The question on everyone’s mind - what’s in our noodles? From being India’s favorite “2 minute noodles”, Maggi is now just a symbol of being “lead” down. It’s been making headlines lately for all the wrong reasons. As it faces countrywide scrutiny, tests are being conducted in various states across the country like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Bihar, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh to check for lead and MSG content.
It all started in Uttar Pradesh where the Food Safety And Drug Administration (FSDA) collected a few samples and sent them to Kolkata for testing. The report found the samples to contain high levels of Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead.

If lead is allowed to accumulate in the body over time, then it can spread to your brain, liver, kidney and bones causing long-term damage.
