Company Creates Instant Ramen Noodles That Has All The Nutrients Needed To Survive
For some people, ramen is life.
The Japanese dish consisting of Chinese-style wheat noodles, served in a meat or fish-based broth, flavoured with soy sauce or miso, and has toppings like sliced pork, nori, menma, and scallions is goddamn delicious.
That version is the typical dish you'll find if you're getting it from a restaurant, however the instant noodle version is decidedly less packed with all those yummy features.
It's obvious that you wouldn't be able to live off the instant version very well because you'd have to get your nutrients from somewhere else...until now.
Nissin is a pretty big player in the instant noodle game and they've created an All-In range that is meant to have all the stuff you need to survive.
"In general, it is said that nutrients in food are lost during long-term storage and cooking," the company said.
"The NISSIN All-in series is overwhelmingly confident in the taste while keeping all the nutrients you need for the day until after boiling. Even if it is stored for a long time, even after it has been boiled, we are committed to nutrition even when eating so that necessary nutrients are not lost."
They've engineered the noodles to have 40 percent less carbs because of their special coating, which packs a load of the goodness.
Each pack of instant noodles has 13 different vitamins, 13 minerals, protein, and dietary fibre, making up a third of your daily intake.
It doesn't take genius at maths to work out downing three of these bad boys will make up everything you need to live.
Nissin hasn't released the seemingly delicious packs yet but they're available for preorder until shipping starts on August 17.
You get three flavours to choose from, Abura Ramen, which is a pretty stock standard ramen flavour with spicy rayu oil, chashu pork, and spring onions; Tom Yum, which is inspired by Thailand and has a coconut milk and lemongrass flavour; and Tantan, which is a smokey Szechuan flavour.
It'll be interesting to see whether it's a fan favourite or if pumping it full of nutrients and vitamins means it's less tasty. Everyone loves a bit of MSG here and there and there's a reason why it's used in so many different dishes.
