Instant Noodles Production Cost Analysis 2020
Instant noodles are a noodle dish that are sold in a dried and precooked noodle form, with flavouring powder, and seasoning oil. The flavouring is generally in a separate packet. However, in the case of cup noodles, the flavouring is often found to be loose in the cup. Some of the instant noodle products are seal packed and are reheated for consuming straight from the packet or from the very container. Dried noodle blocks are made to be cooked or soaked in boiling water before eating. The primary ingredients used in dried noodles are generally wheat flour, palm oil, and salt. Common ingredients in the flavouring powder are salt, monosodium glutamate, seasoning, and sugar. Flash frying cooked noodles initially created the dried noodle block, and this is still the primary process that is used in Asian countries, but air-dried noodle blocks are favoured mostly in western countries.
Instant noodles were first invented by Momofuku Ando of Nissin Foods in Japan. They were launched back in the year 1958, with the brand name of Chikin Ramen. After thirteen years, i.e., in the year 1971, Nissin introduced cup noodles as well. These were the first cup noodle product. Today these instant noodles are marketed globally under numerous brand names. Ramen, a Japanese noodle soup, is often used as a descriptor for instant noodle flavours by some Japanese instant noodle producers. Moreover, it has become synonymous in America for all kinds of instant noodle products.
