This Is What Happens Inside Your Stomach When You Eat Ramen Noodles (VIDEO)

Ramen noodles are inexpensive and, taste pretty good,  but they’re also awful for you. Their sodium contentis enormous and they contain TBHW, or Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone.

TBHQis a biproduct of the petroleum industry and is used as an additive to preserve cheap, processed foods. The chemical is not digestible or beneficial to the human body.

An experiment was conducted to see how ramen noodles were digested by the stomach. A gastrointestinal specialist used a time lapse video inside of the stomach to document two hours of digestion.

Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital was the first to conduct an experiment like this. He wanted to find out what happened to food in the stomach and digestive tract after consuming ramen noodles.

Thanks to a sort of “smart pill,” a camera about the size of a vitamin, Dr. Kuo was able to peer into the gut of someone who had eaten a package of ramen. He was able to record for 32 hours.

Other foods that contain TBHQ include:
  • McDonalds chicken nuggets and french fries

    “The study does not conclude TBHQ is harmful.” The doctor then says he will continue to eat Ramen. Nothing to see here, move along.
