What exactly is unhealthy about Instant Noodles?

Instant noodle is good to taste and easy to cook. We love to have it often without realising its ill effect. Instant noodles are mostly made of Maida, refined flour. They are highly processed and have low nutritive value. They contain high amount of fat, calories, sodium, artificial colours, preservatives, additives and flavourings. In many cases, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and tertiary- butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative obtainable from petroleum industry are found to be present in these noodles. They are used to enhance taste and preserving properties. These elements can be consumed within a limit. Excessive intake of instant noodles is not advisable as it would lead to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, heart problems and others. Therefore, avoid eating instant noodles regularly.
