WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles :

Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, 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 coated with 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 this is the type we use to make stir fry noodles
and the regular Maggie too is made the same way,
plus they add MSG / Ajinomoto and other
chemical 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
pancreasdue to regular consumption of instant noodles...
If the frequency is more than 3 times a week, then it is very hazardous...
do spread it out, if you love your friends and your family ~~
