Nowadays, Baba Ramdev’s “Patanjali Noodles” is stuck with the controversy as the country’s food regulator FSSAI claimed of not having an approval for its instant noodles, but Patanjali Ayurved strongly denied the claims of FSSAI by saying that it has a license for pasta in the central category from the organization and that no separate approval was needed.

Mr. Ashish Bahuguna, the Chairperson of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India stated,

“For instant noodles, companies need to take prior approval. Patanjali Ayurved has approvals for other products, but they don’t have approval for instant noodles.”


The company claimed that the FSSAI has given it the licence of re-labelling under pasta category and on the basis of that it has given contract to many companies to manufacture noodles. And earlier this week, Patanjali had launched “Atta Noodles” in 70 gram packs priced at INR 15 with an eye to make the strong position in the market and compete the leader Nestle’s Maggi, which had now returned to the shelves five months after FSSAI had banned it.
