The epidemic broke out, and every household stocked all kinds of instant noodles. The nutritionist reminded that instant noodles are not heinous and can add calories in an emergency, but instant noodles have almost no nutrients except for calories. From a nutritional point of view, it is not recommended to eat instant noodles frequently. If you must eat it, it is recommended to follow the three principles, add vegetables, add half a packet of sauce, and not drink soup to reduce the burden on your body.
The amount of dehydrated vegetables is very small, only a little fiber is left, and there is no nutritional value at all.
There is almost no nutrition in instant noodles, and you can’t eat anything except calories. Some people think that dried vegetables are equivalent to vegetables. Fresh vegetables have fiber, minerals, and vitamins. However, the nutrients and minerals of the dried vegetables after dehydration are lost, leaving only a little fiber, but the amount of dried vegetables in the instant noodles is only the size of a little finger. After eating, the fiber intake is also extremely insufficient.
Salt, monosodium glutamate, spices, various flavors use additives to achieve the desired taste.
In addition to salt and monosodium glutamate, the dry powder package of instant noodles contains different additives. Such as beef noodle-flavored instant noodles, the seasoning powder is unlikely to be concentrated after boiling beef, but uses additives to achieve the desired taste.
Many saturated fats threaten cardiovascular health; flavors and emulsifiers affect liver and kidney function.
The oil packs of instant noodles often use salad oil, palm oil, edible flavors, antioxidants, emulsifiers, gum arabic, etc.
A bowl of instant noodles eats a day’s sodium content
According to the nutrition label of commercially available instant noodles, the sodium content of a bowl of instant noodles ranges from 1100 mg to 2300 mg. At present, the daily sodium content of adults should be less than 2400 mg, which is equivalent to 6 grams of salt. Eating a bowl of instant noodles is equivalent to eating all day’s sodium.
When eating instant noodles, only half of the oil packet and seasoning powder are added, and “never drink soup”, so that the sodium intake can be reduced to the average intake of a meal.
