Ramen is really delicious. Even though we know that fried noodles and salty soup are not good for our health, it is difficult to resist the temptation of ramen. Can’t we eat ramen ‘healthily’? Various methods have been suggested, such as discarding the water in which the noodles were boiled, but they are too cumbersome. Isn’t the advantage of ramen that you can simply boil it and eat it? In this case, let’s add healthy tomatoes or cherry tomatoes.

Tomato ramen?

Restaurants in Hong Kong and Japan have been introduced that add tomatoes to ramen. They say it tastes good because it is made by a professional chef. Add tomato sauce or add regular tomatoes or cherry tomatoes. Before boiling ramen, you go through a somewhat cumbersome process, such as frying tomatoes in oil. It is a bit burdensome for the average person to make it easily. It is very difficult to capture both taste and nutrition.

Why do you put tomatoes in boiling water?… Improved lycopene absorption rate

To conclude, adding tomatoes to boiling water helps absorb nutrients. Ripe, ripe tomatoes must be heated and eaten for the main ingredient, lycopene, to be well absorbed into the body. It is a nutrient that helps prevent various cancers and cardiovascular diseases by preventing oxidation (damage-aging) of cells in the body caused by other foods. The absorption rate of lycopene contained in tomato sauce is also much better than that of raw tomatoes. Unlike other foods, tomatoes are processed to actually help with nutrient intake.

Contributes to blood-vessel cleaning… Helps prevent vascular disease

Lycopene is the ingredient that gives tomatoes their red color. It has a strong antioxidant effect and improves blood vessels with a lot of neutral fat and cholesterol. If you eat it consistently, it helps prevent vascular diseases such as hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, stroke (cerebral infarction-cerebral hemorrhage), and heart disease (angina pectoris-myocardial infarction). Rutin ingredients also help clean blood and blood vessels. According to the National Cancer Information Center, lycopene is an ingredient that lowers the risk of cancer, including prostate cancer. This is because of its antioxidant effect that reduces cancer cells.

Ramen is ‘healthy’… It is important to eat less salty food

The calories of ramen fried in oil are over 400 calories. If you eat continuously, it becomes a burden to control your weight. The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said that noodles such as ramen are not good for controlling diabetes because they have a high glycemic index that quickly raises blood sugar levels. Salty soups with about 1,000 mg of sodium are also burdensome. Rather than gulping down ramen soup and eating a lot of salty kimchi, it is better for your health to eat foods that are not salted, such as raw vegetables. Tomatoes are one of them. The amount of tomatoes added to ramen can be adjusted depending on individual taste.
