Hello doctor, continuing the previous question about the effects of consuming instant noodles. I want to ask whether pasta is much better than instant noodles or processed noodles? Please explain Thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Frida, thank you for asking again at HealthReplies.com.


Instant noodles are generally said to be dangerous because of the content of the noodles themselves and also in the additional flavorings. When compared in the manufacturing process, both of them have the same manufacturing process that is by drying until it can last for some time. When viewed from the manufacturing process alone, both of them look equally harmless and cannot be said to be better.


When viewed from the side of the content that is owned, pasta and noodles both contain quite a lot of carbohydrates, which if consumed in excess can lead to various diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and other diseases. Besides carbohydrates, pasta also contains a protein called gluten which has the potential to cause allergies in certain people. However, pasta also has some additional ingredients that are not owned by noodles such as magnesium, potassium, and selenium which are also needed by the body.


If seen at a glance, both are equally at risk of causing health problems, especially if consumed too much. But based on various studies on nutrition, pasta even though it is at risk of causing certain diseases, if you can choose the type of pasta that is fixed, and served and consumed appropriately, can have several positive effects on health such as helping to reduce the risk of developing intestinal inflammation, lowering the risk of colon cancer big, etc.


Here are some alternatives that can be done so that you can consume pasta to be healthier:

Choose ingredients made from whole wheat pasta (whole grain pasta)
Also combine the consumption of pasta with other side dishes that contain protein, fat and fiber
Use healthy pasta sauces made from vegetables such as tomato sauce, sauces made from mixed vegetables, or simply by giving olive oil
Limit the portion of pasta consumption to taste

In the end, it can be said that pasta is better consumed compared to noodles, especially instant noodles if consumed by choosing the right type, portion and serving method.


I hope this helps.
