Instant Noodles a solution to Global Hunger:
As per a latest study by Deborah Gewertz, Professor of Anthropology at Amherst College in US, instant noodles can play a significant role in combating the challenge of global hunger which is aggravating with the increasing population.
The study examines the history, manufacturing, marketing and consumption of the ubiquitous foodstuff and suggests that instant noodles will have an increasingly important global role in the future.
As per the study, instant noodles are served in variable forms and have already shown a remarkable potential to be a part of diverse lives. Researchers expect that the calories provided by the tasty, convenient, cheap, shelf-stable, industrially prepared instant noodles will remain important as food becomes scarcer in the future.
