Maggi Seasoning

All about Nestle’s Maggi seasoning


Maggi was originally started back in 1872 in Switzerland and has since been bought out by brand giant Nestle. The Maggi seasoning is so popular because it offers a very unique base to it that makes it perfect for gourmet dishes. The seasoning has a liquid vegetable base and is often specifically used in sauces and soups for additional flavoring. This seasoning can be very salty to some people so if your recipe calls for adding salt, hold off until you have tasted the item with just the seasoning first. If you use the seasoning properly you can get a very unique and tongue pleasing taste.


If you have to compare Maggi seasoning to any other widely known product, it would be soy sauce. It delivers the same concentrate, texture and even the same generic taste. Some countries even use the word ‘maggi’ as a generic slang term for soy sauce. The seasoning from Maggi however tends to deliver a bit more flavor though. This seasoning is widely used in Asian and Philippine cultures and can come in a variety of different flavors and brands as well.
