These pictures were from a email which I received from a friend, and just as I have finished a bowl of home cooked Japanese Ramen at home. When I first read the title of the email, I was a little bit skeptical about the truth in that email. But after looking at the photos, it reminded me of an incident long time ago when a local "low shui fun" noodles factory in my country made the noodles yummy by adding boric acid. Anything to make the noodles yummier and tastier.
Anyway, have a look at the pictures which were sent to me and the text and decide for yourself as to whether this could be fact or not.
There is a restaurant located in Fushan, China serving very popular Lanzhou Ra-Mien (noodle) with daily sales of 700-1200 bowls.
According to the boss, to make such "nice" noodles, some chemical tenderizer have been added during the mixing process. All Lanzhoa Ra-mien contains this chemical.
This chemical is packed in two different packaging. RM3 for the white and RM5 for the blue.
If you could read Chinese, you may be able to tell what is in the contents of the packets.
The function of the chemical is to tenderize and improve the elasticity/softness of the noodles
Experiments were conducted with this chemical in a paper cup and you will see the damages it caused.
On the 2nd day, the chemical has seeped out through the paper cup and caused damage to the floor.
After washing the floor, this was left
The damaging effect was still visible after a long time.
I reckon that if one were to ingest this chemical continuously, problems will arise. But before you throw out all your bags of noodles, perhaps you ought to do a little bit more research first.
