Cooking instant noodle

I bet many of you are using the wrong way to cook instant noodle, me too. Yes, we know the instant noodle is not good to a certain extend that the pack of powder of making the soup, and the mee too. I received this email from my cousin in-law and might sounds true on cooking method.

Normally, when we cook the instant noodles, we normally put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 mins and then ready to eat. This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. By doing this, we actually boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG. This will change the molecular structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic. The other thing that you may not realized is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have taken the noodles.

The CORRECT method, which you should know is to cook the noodles this way:-
1. Boil the noodles in a pot with water.
2. Once the noodles is 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.
5. However, if you need dry noodles, take out the noodles and add the ingredient with the powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

Hope this piece of information is of importance to your health and please apply this cooking method with immediate effect. Yse, although the correct method takes time and it sounds not instant hor? So, eat less and do the correct way.
