In those moments of late-night cravings, Ramen Noodles seem to be your lifeblood -- the key to survival, exactly what you need to keep going.
"Consistent quality and the finest of ingredients."
But according to a new study -- they're killing you. OK, not necessarily, or not outright, but the research shows instant noodle products like Ramen can increase the risk of metabolic syndrome for women.
And metabolic syndrome can mean increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The study found women who ate instant noodle products more than twice a week were the ones in trouble.

The only thing I would say is unhealthy is the huge amount of salt some have in their ingredients.
Yup. Gotta use about 2/3 of the powderand no more.
Try tossing in half a dozen cooked shrimp. Yum!
I add a couple handfuls of mixed frozen vegetables, the boil the water. Good!
First Twinkies now Ramen Noodles. I’m not eating nuts and berries. I revolt.
“metabolic Syndrome” is akin to saying to a person they are weight challenged. To put it in blunter terms, that person is suffers from being fat.
Great.....I guess I’m gonna outlive my daughter....she lived on the crap in college.
The real danger are those flavor packets with enough sodium to kill a horse. Ramen noodles are fine however if you discard the “soup” brine after cooking, then stir-fry with some vegetables. The convenience of an instant noodle but without the health risks.
I wonder how much threat there is from the noodles?
I wonder how much threat there is from the powdered flavoring?
Ok, so don't buy the ones in styro packaging. If you don't want all the salt, then only use half the seasoning packet which tastes better than using the whole thing.
I’ve never had Ramen Noodles, am I missing something?
This is about ramen noodles, I promise.
I recall working in a ‘IT’ company in 2000.
The Gore-Bush election media made fiasco was going on.
One of the IT (Customer Service, Level Two) granolas said to me that we should have internet voting.
I asked him if our software worked 100% of the time: “No.” was the response.
“Then why should we have Internet voting when it’s not 100% reliable?” I asked - (BTW - the reliability rate of our software was less than 70% and he knew it).
“It’s better!” he said, “you can trust it.”
“I do not trust ANYTHING on the internet,” I replied.
He ignored me.
He did get reprimanded for stealing multiple cups of single-serve ramen noodles that were in a barrel for the annual Thanksgiving food drive.
He was making tens of thousands of dollars a year and he took food intended for the needy at Thanksgiving.
I mostly despise granola types as they cannot be trusted.
I am not anti-ramen to set the record straight.
I add a tablespoon of canola oil for some extra calories.
Supposed to be good for you too, but who knows.
The real issue is carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates are poison for humans. Doesn’t matter whether sugar, starch, beans, fruit, white, brown, refined, “whole grains,” etc., etc. etc.
The government will continue to propagandize for carbs as long as farmers can hire lobbyists.
OTOH, the ramen served in some Japanese restaurants is really tasty.
Personally I pour out the water then add the powder, except only one pack for two packs of noodles, plus some Sriracha hot sauce, and any leftover meat and veggies I might have on hand.
The Ramen Rater Top 10.
I don’t know if it’s on the list or not but Indo-Me brand BBQ Chicken flavor is outstanding!
