How to cook noodles

The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health. Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for 3 mins around and then ready to eat. This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG, it will change the molecualr structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic. The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4-5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have taken the noodles. CORRECT method, which you may or may not know, is to cook the noodles this way: 1. Boil the noodles in a pot with water. 2. Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax. 3. Boil another pot of water till boiling and put the noodles into the hot boiling water and then shut the fire. 4. Only at this stage when the fire is off, and while the water is very hot, put the ingredient with the powder into the water, to make noodle soup. However, if you need dry noodles, take out the noodles and add the ingredient with the powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

Thanks for letting me know. It seems rather complicated, boiling four cups of water in two separate pots, but at least it will be safer. I thought it was the powder that was dangerous, not the noodles.

WOW, thanks for sharing this information with us all. I love to eat instant noodles. I eat them at least twice a week. All my life I have been cooking them the wrong way. Thanks to you, now I know the correct way to cook them. I never knew noodles were coated with wax and could be toxic.
