I have used it - but it's been years. You might read this about the flavor of Maggi's Seasoning Sauce on the Cook's Thesaurus website ... just scroll down until you find it.

Oops.
I just went to the cabinet to get my bottle to answer your question and list ingredients, but it's not maggi.
It's Knorr Caldo de Tomate.
So I looked up the site Michael just did.
They're not the same stuff.
So check that site out.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

A major ingredient in Maggi is hydrolyzed protein, which is a sneaky way of saying MSG, in case that matters to you (it does to me).

The original maggi seemed to taste mostly like the herb lovage. The stuff made in China doesn't seem to be quite the same

I have it in my cabinet and I think it is older than me even though I use it regularly. It is definitely concentrated so a little does a lot. I love the stuff.

I don't make any connection of MSG (which I hate) with hydrolyzed plant protein defined as a protein obtained from various foods (like soybeans, corn or wheat), then broken down into amino acids by a chemical process called acid hydrolysis.

I have been using this product since I can remember. We always have it in the house since it first came out. It is good. I like it very much. We usually use it into dips for little Asian meat rolls but I'd use it on most of my food when I have Asian if it will not be that expensive. Short of that, if I ran out, I will mix dark soy sauce with lemon and a bit of sesame seed oil...
