Yes, those are often referred to as micro-ingredients. These micro-ingredients are only used because of demand for meat, eggs, milk. So when people stop consuming those major ingredients, it's highly unlikely these micro-ingredients would be used.

Many veg*ns don't concern themselves with checking for these micro-ingredients, because it makes being vegan look much harder to other people (and we want everyone to realise how easy it can be) -- and because the time and mental energy to memorise and check for those micro-ingredients would probably be better invested in helping animals in some other way (eg. vegan leafleting).

GUH what is the obsession with Maggi Noodles! you only like them because of the years exposure to MSG...

GET A REGULAR PLAIN OL' Noodle cake... ???

Then Add Vegetable Stock... ! It is the same thing, just healthier and cheaper,
if you end up using the big container of stock for this and soups and stuff,
if you ever get to using it all... but the Noodle Cakes are Much cheaper,
with-out the flavouring packets.

Which you will be throwing away if you buy them anyway.

So IDK...

*sigh

i don't see why i'd be throwing out the flavouring sachet considering the company has confirmed its veganness.
i did contemplate buying noodle cakes with like, massel stock or something, but i couldn't find any noodle cakes that looked appropriate for my cause.

However, I suppose it all comes down to personal choice. I wouldn't eat them, because last time I ate noodles they had a really strong plastic taste, but if you want to eat them, and don't feel comfortable about the flavouring sachet ingredients, just use a bit of powdered vegetable stock. It works well, and they taste like chicken noodles.

I heard Mi Goreng noodles are vegan, too.
migoreng is definitely not vegan

"The inclusion of flavour enhancer 631 makes Indomie Mi Goreng unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans."
also the fact it contains palm oil..

bleh who needs processed foods anyway -_-'

I always wondered about Zen House mi goreng noodles because the ones I saw in the shops had egg in them.


well there was only one I could find, I think hot and spicy that was Vegan by reading the ingredients...

and even then... I didn't trust some of the packets that came with it and just used the plain chilipowder with some vegetable stock.. which is alot nicer anyway? and includes more veggies in it?

Maggi Noodles are open to interpretation...If you're a vegan who considers micro ingredients, then no they are not vegan. Just like a majority of processed foods. But if you don't consider micro ingredients, then yes they are vegan. Simple as that! wink

No Animal products added in maggi but still it is not vegan.

How? Maggi has sugar. Processed sugar isn't vegan. Bone Charcoal has been used to process the sugar. I consider sugar as Non Vegan and I use either raw cane sugar or palm sugar.

By the way, I am Mohana from India happy
