They probably won’t hurt you in small doses. And they might even help IF (big if) you happen to be deficient in thiamine, or in some cases, iron. But are instant noodles healthy? They aren’t your best bet as a regular menu item unless you give them the “treatment.”
Thiamine – it turns out instant noodles are especially high in thiamine, AKA vitamin B1. One serving (and that usually means half of a package) can give you almost half of an entire day’s requirements. And who only eats half a package?
And some instant noodles are iron-enriched too. If your system is lacking iron, you could eventually develop anemia.
This is a longer list, but most of it also depends on your individual health needs.
You can make instant noodles healthier with healthy additions. If you’re going the cheap and easy route (heartily recommended), add some nutritious canned foods – canned mushrooms, peas, onions. Add some protein (hard-boiled eggs, cheese, or canned meat) and fiber-rich vegetables, and you’ve added in your sense of fullness. Now it’s a meal!
Are instant noodles healthy? It depends on your individual needs. Once in awhile, if you enjoy them, they probably won’t hurt. But if you’re sensitive to the ingredients or you’re not getting the nutrition you need, look elsewhere.
