How much sodium is in those quick-cook noodles?
Quick-cook noodles are cheap, quick and tasty, and are often used as a snack, but many are high in sodium.
We have compared the sodium content in a serve of noodles to 2300mg, which is the recommended daily upper limit for adults. The recommended daily upper limit is less than this for children under 14 years old. Note that serve sizes vary.
Tip: Leaving out the flavour sachet will reduce the sodium content. Add some fresh herbs instead!
