MAGGI® Soups are prepared by dehydrating vegetables exposing them to hot air and allowing them to dry a process that has been used for centuries in the Middle East to dry limes and dates. After dehydration, spices, salt, herbs and wheat for texture are added to the dried vegetables. In a similar process for Chicken Soups Halal slaughtered chicken meat is dehydrated and then added it to the rest of the ingredients. No preservatives are added to MAGGI® Soups thanks to the aluminium foil packaging that isolates the ingredients from external elements such as humidity and light two factors that allow bacteria to develop. This also protects the ingredients from colour fading so MAGGI® Soups do not just taste delicious, they even look delicious.

We are pleased to inform you that over the past couple of years, MAGGI® Soups have been periodically decreasing its sodium content which is currently in compliance with the standards ensuring good taste and nutritional balance.
“A healthy adult is recommended to limit his daily salt intake to less than 5g of salt per day as per the latest World Health Organization recommendations for a healthy diet.”
1 sachet of MAGGI® Excellence Chicken Soup with Corn for example is used to prepare half a litre soup portion, which is intended to serve 2 people that is 1 serving=250 ml. A 250 ml of prepared MAGGI® Chicken Soup contains 0.7 g of sodium.
In addition it is important to note that different people have different salt thresholds, the ability to identify the salt taste. As a consequence, people may develop a tendency to prefer foods with lower concentrations of salt in case of a lower salt threshold.
We hope you continue enjoying our wide range of MAGGI® products.
Due to the process of dehydration we do not need to add any preservatives. Furthermore the aluminium foil packaging protects the content from any deterioration caused by the external elements such as humidity and light. These are 2 agents that help in the development of bacteria, change in the appearance, texture and taste of the ingredients used.
