Instant Noodles Bye Bye!

By Ashita Bhandari

We all know instant noodles are not the healthiest dietary option. They may come to save your day after a long day of hectic work, or when you have friends over and nothing to cook, but we cannot ignore a few facts about instant noodles that prove to be extremely harmful in the long run.



Almost every family and household has a pack (or more!) of instant noodles. The taste is almost addictive. The recent controversies have surely made people realize and aware of their ill effects and some homes have stopped consuming them completely, but there are a lot who still do. Anything in excess can be harmful, but something that’s already harmful, in excess can be fatal. Of course we don’t realize it now, because the effects are not immediate.

The first con of precooked noodles would be it is made of finely ground, bleached flour (maida), which incites indigestion. A few common effects would be bloating, obesity, high blood pressure and so on.

A very shocking revelation, all instant noodles are DEEP-FRIED! Even if you ignored all the above facts, you cannot ignore this. Deep fried foods are tied to the risk of having diabetes and other heart problems. Sadly, all the work out, running we do to stay healthy and fit goes in vain.
