Make sure you break for at least 3 days after one session of instant noodles before you eat your next packet! Please read the info shared to me by a doctor. My family stopped eating instant noodles more than 5 years ago after hearing about the wax coating the noodles—the wax is not just the Styrofoam containers but it coats the noodles. This is why the instant noodles do not stick to each other when cooking.
If one were to examine the ordinary Chinese yellow noodles in the market, one will notice that in their uncooked state the noodles are oily. This layer of oil prevents the noodles from sticking together.
The hawker then “lowers the noodles in oil and sauce to prevent the noodles from sticking if they are to be served dry. Cooking instruction for spaghetti require oil or butter to be added in the water when boiling the spaghetti to prevent the paste from sticking together. Otherwise, one gets a big clump of spaghetti!
There was am SBC (now TCS) actor some years age, who at a busy time of his career had no time to cook, resorted to eating instant noodles everyday. He got cancer later on. His doctor told him about the wax in instant noodles. The doctor told him that our body will need up to 2 days to clear the wax. There was also an SIA steward who aster moving out from his mother’s house into his own house, did not cook but ate instant noodles almost every meal. He had cancer, and had since died from it.
