Nowadays, instant meals are a real hit, mostly due to the fact that modern lifestyles are too fast and people constantly lack time to prepare for their food that’s why they prefer quick and instant.
It is known that Instant noodles are surely one of the most popular meals, as they are not expensive, can be found in every supermarket or a local store, and are extremely simple to prepare.
Yet, if you believe that they are also one of the healthiest meals you can have, you should definitely watch the following video and you will be shocked with the result of the experiment.
At the Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Braden Kuo conducted a unique experiment to find out the effects of the consumption of instant noodles, in particular, ramen noodles, on the stomach and digestive tract, by using a pill-sized camera.
What happens after you eat the processed food?
Instant noodles are chemically preserved for a long life on the shelves, but nobody has ever seen what happens to the noodles once inside the stomach. Until now!
Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital did an experiment to find out what happens in the stomach and digestive tract after consuming instant noodles (ramen noodles).
He says that the stomach is contracting back and forth, as it is trying to grind up the ramen noodle. For comparison, the study subjects also ate fresh, homemade ramen noodles on a different day.
The most striking thing about the experiment was that after 1 or 2 hours, it was noticed that the processed ramen noodles were less broken down than homemade ramen noodles.
The study cannot conclude processed is harmful. In fact, the study is too small to be conclusive about anything. But, millions are drawing their own conclusions.
Doctor Kuo does plan more research that may reveal whether the slower digestion affects the amount of nutrients the body absorbs.
