Beware Noodle Lovers: Cooking Instant Noodles in a wrong way is very dangerous to your health.

Many of us find it convenient to just cook a packet of instant noodles when we are hungry. Here is a piece of information to share so that we can remove the potential health hazard of consuming such foods.

Maybe you should print this and pin it up in the kitchen or dining room as reminder or in your purse if you are always travelling. DO NOT IGNORE THIS …
Especially those fond of easy- to-cook Instant noodles.


Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot withwater, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it’s ready to eat. This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder,normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structure of the MSG, causing it to be toxic. The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coatedwith wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have eaten the noodles.


1. Boil the noodles in a pot of water.

2. Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax.

3. Boil another pot of water, add the cooked noodles into the hot boiling water and then turn off the stove.

4. Only at this stage when the stove is off, and while the water is very hot, add the flavouring powder into the water, to make noodle soup.

5. However, if you need dry noodles, remove the noodles and add the flavouring powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

Dietician’s Note: If you buy plain hakka noodles which you make, you initially need to boil in water and discard the water. This will soften the noodles but to prevent it from sticking we need to add a tbsp of oil and also the noodles are deep fried partially to make them crunchy and then dusted with flour to prevent them from sticking while boiling. Hence when you buy the noodles they are already made unhealthy and plus they add MSG / Ajinomoto and otherchemical preservatives. A large number of patients with ages ranging from 18-24 years are ending up with pancreatitis either as a swelling or infection of the pancreas due to regular consumption of instant noodles… If the frequency is more than 3 times a week, then it is very hazardous.

Please do share this with your loved ones. Thanks and have a healthy eating instant noodles.

  4. @ Hans “The Ramen Rater” Lienesch, i do believe that pancreatitis is caused by instant noodles. I grew up as a kid eating noodles, my mom fed them to me bc no one knew how harmful they were. We just knew what everyone else knows. That they are full of salt and msg. At the age of 11 I was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. And no one knew the cause of it… not the doctors not anybody. Then at the age 19 I was diagnosed again. I kept eating noodles in my diet bc I didnt know that was the cause. So believe ppl when they say instant noodles are bad for you bc they are. The msg and the actual noodes itself are harmful. Please treat instant noodles as it they are a very bad drug that you shouldnt be allowed to eat!! Lol i hope i save someonr from eating a pack of noodles. There really needs to be a petition for this or something!

    • My question to you would be this: were instant noodles the only foodstuff in your diet at all? It sounds as if you had a run of bad luck which I empathize with, but I doubt you can solely blame instant noodles for this; salt, fat and carbohydrates are in many, many foods in the same amounts.
