PSA: Nissin’s new All-In Noodles are packed full of vitamins and minerals
14 Aug 2019
Real talk: even the snobbiest food snobs among us find it hard to resist the salty, carby charm of a hot cup of instant noodles. (Don’t just take our word for it though - you know it’s a thing when even The New York Times is getting in on the act). But any guilt that you might feel after inhaling your cup o’ nutrient-lacking convenience might soon be lessened with a very good news story from Nissin, the makers of the famed (and superior) Cup Noodles brand.
The Japanese manufacturers have just unveiled their brand-new All-In Noodles line and, here’s the kicker, they’re bursting with vitamins and minerals. According to Nissin, each packet contains around one-third of a person’s daily nutritional intake requirements, and with 13 different vitamins, 13 minerals and a heap of of protein and dietary fibre in each packet.
This is where the science happens.
The good stuff is all densely packed into the core of the noodle, which is then wrapped in a coating that’s apparently as good as what you’d find in a packet of regular Cup Noodles. This also means that the new nood contains around less than 40 percent of the carbohydrates than regular instant noodles.
The new All-In series comes in four flavours: a plain version free of seasoning (and you can find some awesome tips here on how to seriously up your instant noodle game); Abura, with spicy rayu oil, chashu pork and green onions; Tom Yum, with lemongrass coconut milk and coriander; and Tantan, a smokey Sichuan flavour with a good amount of kick.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner because why not, tbh.
No word on if or when these bad boys will be available in Hong Kong, but you can order All-In Noodles from the Nissin website, with shipping currently scheduled to start on 19 August. The plain version is going for ¥400 (around HKD30), while the flavoured varieties will set you back ¥600 (around HKD44) a pop. Not bad for a very nutritious meal.
