you should know this, besides all the starch and sodium, there are beetle larvae eggs, in the noodle and after 4 months they hatch and start eating the noodle, I have as well as friends and family, have plopped the noodles in the water and the little live larvae worms, scurry out of the noodle pack and are boiled to death a long with your soup, so in closing, Chinese eat bugs and so are you..
The flavor packs include lots of sodium & MSG, and the dried-out essence of chicken/beef/pork/shrimp/mystery meat/etc and vegetables. Basically the same stuff that's in a bouillon cube. I'd say I could type in for you all the ingredients, but there are lots of different flavors and brands, so it would be a moot point to list all the specifics. If you have an allergy, check the brand's website for specifics so you don't end up in anaphylactic shock. Aside from that... happy eating! <3
