In making each package of bagged Ramen, roughly 80 strands of noodles are used. After the noodle dough is kneaded, the dough is pressed into sheets and fed through rollers until it has reached the specified thickness. The final roller it passes through cuts the noodle sheet into strands and these strands are separated into roughly 80 strand counts. The noodles are then steam cooked, cut into individual portions, and folded to give its recognizable shape before being deep fried in oil to dehydrate them. After a short cooling period the blocks of noodles are individually packaged with the soup base packet.
