Yes Maggi in your everyday Soup and foods is a killer worst than HIV/AIDS, Ebola, covid-19 all joined together.
Are you shocked? Then read on..
Firstly it was created in 1886 by a Swiss named Julius Maggi for LOW INCOME workers and the POOR, who could not afford to balance their diet with meat and fish because they were very expensive to them.
In order to provide a TASTE of meat and fish to the poor, JULIUS MAGGI introduced the Maggi cube with its famous red and yellow label on the packaging.
In 1886, after the Berlin conference, colonial masters were free to export whatever they produced to their colonies mostly in Africa.This was how Julius Maggi thought that there would be lucrative market in Africa for his product.
So he exported and ingeniously launched his advertising there. It began to gain recognition and patronage in 1910.
Prior to the introduction of Maggi to Nigerians, the local locust bean called IRU in Yoruba, DADDAWA in Hausa and OGIRI okpe in igbo mixed with cray fish or dried fish was the traditional means of adding FLAVOUR and DELICACY to the soup.
All these mixtures have much medicinal benefits and may have contributed to the long life span and physical fitness enjoyed by our forefathers.
Maggi was not popular in Nigeria until in the early 1970s when it started spreading very fast in the market as neighbours and communities introduced it to one another.
The product succeeded because maggi cube could be kept longer at higher temperatures and with the possibility of giving a better taste to the cooking whenever used.
The Knorr, Royco, Dangote cubes..etc are different brands competing with Maggi even though people generally regard all of them as Maggi.
Africans began and continue to put it in every dish despite the danger inherent in it.
DID YOU KNOW that Maggi contains a high level of MSG (MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE)? extremely high level of lead nearly seven times above human body needs, transfats LDL, sodium all of which damage s the Brain cells and increases chances of stroke..etc.
Nigeria has continued to witness several brands of the product including the white Ajinomoto in the 1980s to 90s which medical experts condemned as capable of affecting the human liver.
Millions of Maggi cubes are sold and consumed every day in Africa so the company had to expand by creating eleven factories in the region despite warnings of public health risk associated with the products.
Women, mostly ladies add as many cubes to their cookings to the extent of the level of sweetness they want the soup to produce. In many homes, the preparing of “moi moi” (steamed bean paste) akara (fried bean paste), beans, boiling fish etc cannot go without Maggi nowadays. African foods have the highest test in the world.
However, lots of people based on medical advice have wisely abandoned Maggi and have been using the traditional “iru” or crayfish as alternatives.
“Consuming the Maggi cube in every cooking is akin to increasing cardiovascular risks including hypertension ,diabetes and stroke (cerebrovascular). The risk is higher particularly when one advances in age as it weakens the heart functions” -Dr Olúṣọlá Ajólore. 09-12-2020.
With high rate of Maggi consumption could develop erectile disfunction, persistent waist pain and rheumatism.(i.e. Dissolve six cubes in a 750ml of water, give the goat to drink and it can’t mate for at least six months.)
Maggi has been identified as having greater negative consequences on human health than sugar. Unknown to many the product is primarily the contributing factor in many cases of strokes in Africa because of its continuous mass consumption during the active ages.
