Did You Know That Instant Noodles Were This Bad for You?

Ramen Noodles are a quick cheap meal to have, whether you’re at work, school, or even at home. The cost of Ramen Noodles is very cheap, 12 meals for about two dollars? Why not buy it? But what people don’t know is how bad Ramen Noodles are for our bodies and for our health.

Instant noodles are known for their high amount of different fats such as saturated fat. Based on a 2,000 calorie diet – eating a full pack of ramen noodles fills up forty percent of your daily value of saturated fat. In other words, noodles are fried in fatty-fat-fat.  If you consume too much-saturated fat you’re not only eating a lot of calories, but also run a greater risk of developing heart disease. Experts recommend that you eat less than 10% or 15 grams in saturated fat based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

And if the greatly above average amount of fat in a single cup of noodles isn’t enough, there is an insane amount of salt on top of it all. Sure, in Ramen’s defense, their noodles are high in iron, protein, and fiber. Although these aren’t enough to defray the super high amount of 1,560 grams of sodium in a single pack, which is more than half of one’s daily sodium. The FDA recommend a sodium limit of 2,300 mg per day. Petroleum is also used for making Ramen Noodles. Therefore, when you eat instant noodles you are eating chemicals. Enjoy your Ramen chemicals!
