Nissin Moves To Make Its Salty, Fatty Cup Noodles More Healthful

September 15, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Acknowledging healthful eating trends and consumer concerns about processed food ingredients, Nissin has reduced the sodium content of its Cup Noodles – to 45 percent of a person’s recommended daily salt intake from 60 percent – and eliminated artificial flavors and colors. The move follows on the heels of last year’s decision to enlarge the styrofoam cups and make them microwaveable. Nevertheless, the soup still contains more than a third of the saturated fat an adult should eat in a day.
