I just want to share this tip that I got through email. I am not really sure if this is a fact though. I will be researching about this later at work. ;-). Here is how the email goes:
CORRECT WAY OF COOKING NOODLES
The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health:
Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it's ready to eat.
This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic. The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coated with wax (lilin) and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have taken the noodles.
1. Boil the noodles in a pot with water.
2. Once the noodles is cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax (lilin).
3. Boil another pot of water till boiling point and put the noodles into the hot boiling water and then shut the fire.
4. Only at this stage when the fire is off, and while the water is very hot, put the ingredients with the powder into the water, to make noodle soup.
5. However, if you need dry noodles, take out the noodles and add the ingredients with the powder and toss it to get dry noodles.
