the oil package and seasoning sauce package came with the instant noodles are made up of many processed ingredients. the formula of different products is different. as a result, it is impossible to establish a standard for the formula in practice.
most of the heavy metals in food come from the environment and they are the pollutant that we cannot avoid. the news report claimed that the oil package and seasoning sauce package that came with the instant noodles contained heavy metals. however, after the assessment, there is no risk for ingestion of toxic substances. people do not need to panic.
in taiwan, we follow the regulations on good hygiene practice for food (ghp) to control the heavy metals in foods. no regulation has been established to control the heavy metals in processed foods made up of compound ingredients around the globe yet.
the taiwan food and drug administration reminds people that they should have a balanced diet. the nutrition of instant noodles is not balanced; therefore, people should not have them too often. in addition, the amount of the seasoning sauce added to the noodles should not be too much for people to have a healthy and delicious meal.
