Hyderabad: The Telangana government-run-laboratory has given a clean chit to food giant Nestle on the issue of lead content in Maggi noodles. However, the lab has stated that the food major has ‘misbranded’ the product, following detection of monosodium glutamate (MSG) in its tastemaker Maggi Masala  

The lab, in its report, said that the lead content in the noodle samples was 1.929 parts per million, which is quite within the permissible limit of 2.5 per cent. However, the lab detected MSG in the tastemaker.

A food product is said to be ‘misbranded,’ if it is found to contain anything opposed to what is mentioned on its label.

According to the lab report, the claim 'No added Monosodium Glutamate' was mentioned twice on the packet, which was misleading as its tastemaker did contain MSG.

Meanwhile, in another report received by the government, the Institute of Preventive Medicine (IPM) has seconded the same finding. The IPM report is expected to be released by the government on Tuesday.
