In order to follow the digestive process and observe what happens in the stomach once the person intakes instant noodles, scientists put a little, pill-sized camera inside the person’s stomach. The results were devastating for all instant noodle lovers. They showed that it was difficult for the body to break those noodles down even after 2 hours which is very unusual. On the other hand, those participants who ate homemade noodles, the results showed that they digested much quicker, so after 2 hours was hardly anything left to see in the stomach.
This study was the firts experiments of this kind and it was conducted by Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General hospital. However, Dr. Kuo points out that this does not necessarily means that noodles are harmful for your helath, since the sample was too small and further research is needed in order to establish the effects the slow digestive process has on the gastro-intestinal tract and your body as a whole. Moreover, Dr. Kuo himself contiunes eating these noodles but he does it in moderation.
However, others are more cautious about eating instant noodles, because they put a strain on the digestive tract by staying for so long, and the digestive tract needs to work continuously. Also, instant ramen contains numerous different additives and preservatives, which is bad for the digestive tract to remain for so long inside the organism. It’s not sure what the long exposure does to the body, but it’s probably not that beneficial to your health.
