It is a misconception that instant noodles contain a plastic or coating. We hear this question occasionally as it has been an internet rumor for a long time. Please rest assured that there are no plastics or waxes used in the making of our instant noodle products. There are also no special coatings on the packaging or the containers, nor are the noodles coated for extended preservation or any other reason.

Our noodles are made from flour, water and seasonings like salt and soy sauce. We use regular cooking oil to fry and dehydrate the noodles which reduces the moisture content. The low moisture content allows for the long shelf life. Also, there are federal regulations that mandate all ingredients used in a product must be printed in the ingredients list to allow the consumer to verify its contents.

We hope this information helps to assure you about the products we make. Your interest in Maruchan is genuinely appreciated and we are grateful for your continued support. Thank you again for the opportunity to clear up this misconception.
