Yes, yes, I feel your pain. If you’re a vegetarian that doesn’t eat eggs or fish, please, stay away from Maggi noodles! I live in Dubai, and I have been eating Maggi Curry for so long… I LOVE that flavor… Alas, my heart it quaked, the moment it was revealed to me, that Maggi “may contain traces of fish and crustacean”. LIKE OMG WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY! Even the Vegetable flavoured Maggi Noodles have traces of fish and crustacean! What part of “VEGETABLE” do they not get?
In India, vegetarian foods that are absolutely safe for vegetarians to eat have a green dot on the packet. My friend said these foods with the green dots are verified and checked by authorities to ensure they are vegetarian-friendly. The good news is that these green-dotted Maggi packets are available in Dubai and are safe for vegetarians. Even so, I strongly urge all of you to check the ingredients just to be sure, even if they are “vegetable flavored”. It seems even cheddar cheese is made out of animal rennet. Some cheddar cheese is perfectly safe for vegetarians as they are made from vegetarian rennet. Even Kraft cheese is made of animal rennet! But… LIKE OMG WHY WHY WHY WHYYYYYYYYY! Why would they do such a thing! It’s CHEESE!!
