Sept 21- Why you should soak instant noodles
September 21, 2017 9:10am CST
I never thought that I was supposed to soak instant noodles before cooking them. The instructions on the packet doesn't say so, who did and why? I had watched a documentary series about how the instant noodles were made and how to cook it to taste good. One of the crucial point is you have to soak the instant noodles, after you take it out from the packet, whether it is for soup noodles or dried noodles. Just soak it with tap water until it submerged. One minute will do , no longer than that because it will turn soggy. Reason: instant noodles are pre-fried before packaging and seasoned with coating stuff to ensure the noodles stays the rectangular shape, crisp and last longer. So if you didn't soak the instant noodles, you will be consuming the excess oil and the coating stuff into your tummy, become obese or over weight. Try it. Result: A layer of white stuff and oil submerged on top of the tap water after 1 minute. Guarantee 100%! my photo

yes i also thought that soaking the noodles will remove the salt in them. i also read on FB about throwing away the first water boiled then replace another cups of noodles. it was stated that the salt should have gone with the first water thrown away.
