Easy to prepare and cheap, noodles are the favorite dish of many people. Natural or with vegetables or meat, noodles are the Chinese pasta! They are usually made from wheat flour. But what are they hiding? Why more and more people are warning of their dangers? We will answer these questions in this article.
Difficult to digest
If, as mentioned above, noodles are easy and quick to prepare, they are very difficult to digest for our stomach. They do not begin to digest themselves until two hours after eating them. The noodles overload your digestive system and block it for a long time and won’t let it digest any other food.
Full of additives
If there is one thing that characterizes noodles, it is the impressive number of additives used in their manufacture. They are rich in tertiary butyl hydroquinone, a toxic preservative derived from petroleum, sprayed on foods to prevent color changes. Needless to say, it has adverse effects on health.
These Asian pastas also contain benzopyrene, a chemical compound that can be found in cigarettes. A pollutant like no other that increases the risk of cancer.
In addition, the sodium salt found in noodles can also cause learning disabilities and even Alzheimer’s disease at a certain age.
Rich in calories and fat
Noodles are far from low caloric. A recent US study found that women who ate noodles more than twice a week (including egg noodles) were 68% more likely to suffer from morbid obesity, high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease.
