Unboxing Maggi Gift Box for Diwali 2017


We were a select team of foodbloggers invited to visit the Nestle R&D Center at Delhi. Please visit my culinary adventure blog series to Nestle Part 1 and 2. At the end of our visit all of us received this maggi gift box which is going to launch for Diwali.

Diwali is celebrated with all grandure throughout India. The festivities begins with decorating the house in a very colourful way, preparing varitey of goodies and sharing all the goodies with cousins, friends and neighbours. In return for all goodies, friends and family exchange gifts this is when the confusion for gifting starts and many of us want to splurge on gifts which will be cherished and appriciated.

Every year Nestle puts togeather gifting options at an affordable price point which can be gifted for all ages. This maggi gift is a very neat idea. We can ourselfs assemble all maggi products and create a personalized gift basket or box if this box is not available on online stores or local grocers.
90% of all maggi noodles are whole wheat or Oats. There are only few flavors with rifined flour used in noodles. The balance between Protein, Carbohydrate and Fat in MAGGI noodles is very similar to the recommendations made by Indian Council of Medical Research. This includes even the newly launched MAGGI comes with Oat noodles which  provides energy in recommended ratio –Energy from carbohydrates (56%), protein (10%) and fats (33%). According to ICMR recommendation on Dietary Guidelines for Indians, the total fat in the diet should provide between 20-30% of total calories. 

The total fat intake in the diets can go up to 50g per person per day based on the level of physical activity and physiological status.The fat content per serve (per pack) in the various MAGGI noodles is 11-13g and is well within the recommended proportions. It is about 1/5th of the total fat requirement for a person’s daily diet. Even if we compare the fat content in some commonly consumed food items – one bowl of MAGGI Noodles had lesser fat than common food items like a vegetable cheese sandwich, veg biryani, a dosa, or an aloo parantha.


We got to see MAGGI Noodles cake go through 6 step cooking process before they are packed. At first they are steamed - very similar to the process of making Idli. Then they are baked. The 3rd step involves quick air frying of about a minute and a half which reduces the moisture in the noodle & cooks the noodles cakes enough for them to remain stable for several months before they reach consumers.

This also ensures that you can cook your MAGGI noodles in boiling water in just 2 minutes. Finally after drying & cooling the noodles are packed. A special poly cover ensures the noodles remains fresh for several months.  

After visiting the research and development plant. I realized the efforts and strict quality measures ensured to produce a healthy snack for todays consumer. 

This maggi gift box has a thankyou note card in every box.
