Maggi is back! While the Maggi Instant Noodles’ comeback received a warm response on social media, there is a new player in the game.

Maggi vs Patanjali 8

Taking advantage of the controversial Maggi India Ban, Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali noodles has sneaked into the market while Maggi is just getting back in the fray.

We bought, cooked and tasted both instant noodles.

Here is the detailed Maggi vs Patanjali comparison.

Taste

Maggi vs Patanjali 7

Since we could not find Maggi Atta noodles on the stands, we had to compare it to the regular Maggi i.e. Maggi Masala.

New Maggi vs Old Maggi

Maggi, in its comeback avatar, is almost the same as the old one, but we found it a tad less spicy, just a very little bit. The old taste is still there, just that the spice does not overawe you like before.

This one does not stay on your tongue for long and even doesn’t make you salivate for a bottle of coke.

Patanjali Noodles

Patanjali, on the other hand, was a different thing altogether. It is not at all spicy, but actually pretty well-balanced. The best part about Patanjali is that it easy on the way down.

Maggi, as always, makes you feel a little heavy.

Nutritional Information

Maggi vs Patanjali 2

Both the noodles have a licence from Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI). Patanjali Atta noodles state that their product is in line with the international guidelines recommending a limited intake of saturated fat, sugar and salt.

But on comparing the both we realise that Patanjali noodles have both sugar and fat content more than Maggi.

Also, Patanjali noodles have dietary fibre, iron and sodium that Maggi is lacking.

Cooking Time

Maggi: 2 mins approx

Maggi vs Patanjali 5

Patanjali Atta Noodles: 4 Minutes approx

True to its name, Maggi is ready in 2 Minutes flat, while Patanjali takes a little longer to cook.

Price Comparison

Maggi vs Patanjali 4

A 70 gm pack of Maggi is available for INR 12 only.

Maggi vs Patanjali 3

A 70 gm pack of Patanjali’s atta noodles are available for INR 15 only.

Although Patanjali’s atta noodles cost Rs. 3 more than Maggi noodle, we can’t overlook the fact that the Atta noodles by Maggi were otherwise for Rs.25. By that standard Patanjali’s Atta noodles are fair for its price.

Availability

Maggi is available in most departmental stores whereas we could find Patanjali noodles only at the Patanjali store. Maggi has a network across mountains, valleys and hills and even at the smallest of departmental stores, unlike Patanjali.

Also unlike Patanjali, Maggi can also be purchased online through Snapdeal.

  1. Would also like you to compare Maggi with Sunfeast Yippee since I cannot spot the difference

  2. Well paid comparison… In case you would like to compare do.compare with Maggi atta noodles which is awaiting fssai approval. For Me it’s actually copycat of Maggi atta noodles.

    • Dear Sanjib

      We agree that this is indeed a well-paid comparison as it connected us to many who have read, liked, shared and commented on our article. Surely, we will heed to your request and would also compare Maggi atta noodles with Patanjali Noodles once Maggi gets the approvals.I agree that Patanjali Noodles seem like Maggi’s replica but our experience suggests that nothing beats Maggi tastemaker in flavours and hence its very difficult to find anything close to it.
