Mi goreng may contain unsafe ingredients…suprised??

Taste's like chicken.


An asian health website revealed yesterday that the ever popular mi goreng instant noodles have been seized by authorities and tested, suspected of having a chemical ingredient used as a preservative in cosmetics.  Although results are yet to be confirmed.

These delicious noodles are ridiculously popular based mainly on there value for money (around $2 for a 6 pack in supermarkets, even cheaper in Asian food stores in Chinatown, Sydney) and in my opinion have wiped the floor with other more westernized brands like ‘maggi’ when it comes to value for your money. They are extremely popular with school students and tight arse university students.  The facebook page has almost a quarter of a million fans,  considerably more than the page from the iron chef, which i’m sure has made REAL mi goreng.  But did anyone think of what the hell is in those funny smelling oil sachets?

I heard of rumors popping up all over the place once they started getting popular such as the packets containing more sodium and MSG than any other instant noodle in the supermarket, Which may well be true, but in my opinion i think these rumors cropped up from the nauseous feeling everyone seems to get in their stomach after consuming this spicy substance. I also do not think I’ve ever produced more satisfying farts while under the influence of these bad boys.

Without being to biased towards the company with so little knowledge, does anyone actually know what the hell the white oil is? not to mention the so called “onion flakes” bundled with the powder? and why the end result produces a flavorsome, spicy, glistening concoction that doesn’t come close to any other instant noodle you’ve tried? As everyone has learned from McDonald’s you can’t have something that tastes good AND is good for your health. So there must be something sneaky in these yellow strings that there not telling us.

Any who, whether or not the noodles do contain this unsafe ingredient, the fact is that no one who consumes them will care. They will continue to be an ever growing brand. Like i said the majority of consumers are young adults, a large percentage of whom smoke. The noodles could be killing us for all we care. It makes no difference. The company has accidently fallen upon the perfect marketing sword, targeting the only age bracket in Australia that doesn’t give a shit about long term consequences and I for one will not give up until i grow old and actually learn to cook.
