Ramen noodles contain Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (THBQ), which is a byproduct of the petroleum industry and food additive frequently to preserve cheap processed foods. It is one of those chemicals that is neither digestible or beneficial in any way for your body. A gastrointestinal specialist conducted an experiment with a time lapse video inside the stomach, comparing both fresh and preserved ramen noodles. After two hours of digestion, the results were staggering.

Salt is the least of my concerns.

Quote:Both the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have evaluated TBHQ and determined that it is safe to consume at the concentration allowed in foods.[4] The FDA sets an upper limit of 0.02% of the oil or fat content in foods.[5] At higher doses, it has some negative health effects on lab animals, such as producing precursors to stomach tumors and damage to DNA.[6] A number of studies have shown that prolonged exposure to high doses of TBHQ may be carcinogenic,[7] especially for stomach tumors

Quote:As a food additive, its E number is E319. It is added to a wide range of foods, with the highest limit (1 gram/kg) permitted for frozen fish and fish products. Its primary advantage is enhancing storage life.

This is why I carry my E-number list with me..

Well msg is a type of salt, and the salt content is high. A lot of people eat this stuff now because it's cheap.
I know I ate two in one night when I had no other food, and I had palpitations so bad, I couldn't sleep.
I ate them all the time well into my twenties, but they probably didn't have as much crap in them then.
I won'ttouch them now.

Eat the real deal. There's a lot of salt in that too, but no chemicals.
You get it at a Japanese restaurant.
