Cup noodles and instant noodles is one of the biggest inventions in Japan that has spread all over the world. In Japan there are thousands of different flavors and they are much more stuffed compared to those sold in Brazil.
It is consumed by much of the Japanese population due to the low price and short preparation time. It is mainly consumed by busy people or Neets. Momofuku Ando, founder of Nissin, invented instant noodles in 1958.
Some people mistakenly find that instant ramen is healthy just because it is done in Japan and is full of vegetables. Like most industrialized products cup noodles and Japanese instant noodles also have its dangers, and we’ll see about them in this article.
Dangers of Cup Noodles
Why are Cup Noodles dangerous? All this due to its manufacturing process. The purpose of the manufactures is to create a long-lasting, desicdo noodle that cooks in a few minutes. To arrive at these requirements it is fried in oil and its dehydrated soup has much more fat and sodium besides monosodium glutamate (MSG) and several other preservatives and chemical components.
The great danger even is in the high sodium content, possessing more than 1060mg and 13g of fats. A Cup Noodle has about 380 calories, 126 of which are fats and the rest white flour. Instant noodle seasoning and soup is great responsible.
I think everyone should know the danger of sodium that causes pressure and ulcer problems. Monosodium Glutamate used to mask and enhance the taste of ingredients can cause headaches, nausea and burning in some people. After 20 years this can even help develop cancer. We don’t even need to talk about fat.
Alternatives to Cup Noodles
Just as we can’t stop drinking soft drinks, eating snacks or meat, CUP Noodles doesn’t have to be 100% avoided, just have balance. Among all Cup Noodles one of the healthiest is chicken with vegetables that has only 290 calories.
You can also resort to other types of instant noodles without seasoning and ingredients. You can season yourself and stuff in a natural way with products you buy. Also note instant products that take longer to get ready, the longer it takes to be healthier. Also buy other pasta that are not fried in oil.
If you live in Japan it is much better to go to a ramen restaurant, soba or original udon instead of eating instant and industrialized products.
Differences between ramen and myojo
Miojo is an industrial instant noodle that promises to bring the taste of the lamen to your home. Despite the attempts, the Miojo will never arrive or near a handmade and original ramen.
The handmade ramen takes hours and hours to get ready, while miojo is done in just 5 minutes. Only the sauce of a ramen can take up to 20 hours to get ready. Not even cup noodles comes close to a ramen.
The ramen has a totally different texture, aroma and flavor, a completely unique sauce and not that seasoning sache that comes in instant noodles. It takes a lot to make a ramen.
