    What is Maggi sauce?

    • Pati

      Hi Annette, Maggi sauce is a seasoning sauce that tastes like a combination of soy sauce and beef bouillon (but made from vegetable extract). It’s Swiss in origin but is very popular in Mexican kitchens! You can find it in the international aisles of supermarkets and Latin groceries, or you can always substitute soy sauce for Maggi sauce.

        Maggi is not Swiss, but German. however, it belongs to Nestle now. Actually it is nothing more than a seasoning. Once you use it, everything tastes the same. I have to say that I am very surprised that maggi is also so popular in Mexico.. surely sad for the Mexican kitchen…
