Instant noodles are actually noodles sold in a precooked and also dried block with flavoring powder and seasoning oil. The flavoring is usually in a separate packet, although in the case of cup noodles, the flavoring is often loose in the cup. Some instant noodle products are seal-packed and these can be reheated or eaten straight from the packet. Dried noodle blocks are designed to be cooked or soaked in boiling water before eating but can be consumed dry.
For those who might not know, the main ingredients used in dried noodles are usually wheat flour, palm oil, and salt. Common ingredients in the flavoring powder are salt, monosodium glutamate, seasoning, and also sugar. This has made the process to eat instant noodles to be so easy for consumers, that is why people love to eat instant noodles almost all the time.
