The instant noodles are mainly popular among people who lack money and time. It is true that they are cheap, convenient and very tasty when served hot, but the question is how healthy they are? If they are one of your favorite meals, you need to cut them off. In case you think that even though they are not the healthiest choice they are not worse than the fast food, you are definitely wrong.
There was an experiment in regard to the instant noodles, conducted by Dr. Braden Kuo of the Massachusetts General which proved to be very concerning. By using a camera put in the digestive tract he wanted to see what happens in the digestive tract itself when you consume instant, processed noodles. The homemade ramen noodles were used as a comparison and after two hours the instant noodles remain intact, much more than the homemade ones. This result is disturbing and concerning for many reasons as follows:
This means that the digestive system is forced to work for hours in order to break town the processed food and it undergoes a heavy strain. This is strange because due to the devoid of fiber, most of the processed food usually breaks down very quickly and interferes with the insulin release and the blood sugar levels.
When the food stays in the digestive tract for a long period, it impacts the nutrient absorption but in the case with the processed ramen noodles there isn’t much nutrition. There are many additives instead, such as the toxic preservative tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ). This additive remains in the stomach as well as the invincible noodles and it is a mystery how this extended exposure time can affect your health.
We truly hope that you will reconsider your consumption of instant noodles and cut them off because the results are really concerning and frightening.
