This Is What Happens In Your Stomach When You Eat Ramen Noodles

Just about everyone has heard of Ramen noodles, at some point in their life.


Ramen noodles generally contain Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), a by-product of the petroleum industry and  a harmful and certainly unnecessary food additive which is also found in cosmetics, perfumes, and lacquers, among other things. In very high doses it can actually cause death.

  • Nestle
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Wheat Thins

  • Little Debbies nutty bars and some M&M products



There are actually many more products that contain TBHQ, but this will give you an idea of what to look out for.

Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital conducted an experiment with a tiny camera, the size of a pill, to find out exactly what happens to food in the stomach  after consuming ramen noodles. Both fresh, homemade ramen noodles and processed ramen noodles were observed.

“The most striking thing about our experiment when you looked at a time interval, say in one or two hours, we noticed a processed ramen noodles were less broken down than the homemade ramen noodles.”
