WE LOVE RAMEN: Eat Ramen Without Guilt! [Infographic]


----------------

All over the world -Ė whether Ramen itself or some other brand Ė university students are intimately familiar with the cheap, tasty, and wonderfully filling wonder that is instant noodles.

However, weíre constantly told how bad it is for you: itís processed, itíll make you fat, itíll make your liver shrivel. Iíve even been told itíll make your hair fall out (I donít believe itÖI refuse to).

Well, thatís all due to the crazy stuff they put in the packets. If you toss away the packets and use your own ingredients, you could have a wonderfully cheap and tasty meal thatís not particularly unhealthy!

And I have learned that this infographic is right: the student is not the only one to glean sustenance from this cheap alternative to other foods Ė when youíre a struggling startup, super cheap instant noodles (with some mixed vegetables for Ďhealthinessí) is mighty enticingÖ

  1. That's great and all but $2 for each meal, yeah I don't think so. Cheap is the whole point of ramen.

  2. Awesome graphic, but I'm skeptical of the actual stats. A package of Ramen contains "2 servings" and the calories this graphic is quoting is definitely for just one serving of half a block of Ramen.

      • Seriously. And the recipes. Ugh.

        Ramen + stewed tomatoes + tomato sauce = your salt intake for a week.

      • If there was that much sodium in it, you could not add it to water without an energetic reaction.

        What you mean is sodium-CHLORIDE, or, you could just say salt and actually look more intelligent than you do when _trying_ to seem sophisticated by using inaccurate marketing-speak.

  3. All this reminds me of is the ramen restaurants in Japan that I loved going to, and knowing that I'm stuck with crappy "instant" ramen in the US. Oh, delicious BBQ ramen, with your succulent pork slices and savory sauce, I will never forget you! ;___;

  4. first off, the word "advertisement" is clearly stated at the top of the article.
    also, a lot of people are talking about the issue of sodium. i'd like to see something on the amount of protien in these meals.

  5. @ashley: THe word advertisement is written for the adsense ad on top of the post, not the infographic.
