Basically, Ramen noodles use a chemical seasoning called “kansui”, carbonate water to make the noodles chewy and to enhance its flavor.
But SOKENSHA noodles do not contain such them.
In addition, this company don’t use any meat broth.
Today, I introduce the ramen that’s perfect for the health-conscious!
“Onomichi” is in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is about 50 miles from the atomic bomb point. (50 miles from Beverly Hills to Laguna Beach or London to Cambridge are the almost same distance)
The best Hiroshima ramen is this “Onomichi” ramen.
It’s made from 100% Japanese wheat flour only. This noodle is completely white, because they make without Kansui.
It’s soy sauce based and light.
The noodles are so chunky😊
“Yakisoba” means fried-noodle. This sauce means special soy sauce.
But, I don’t like instant Yakisoba because it’s difficult to adjust the water level in the fried noodles…I often make them too soft😥
Typically, Japanese yakisoba is flavored with Worcestershire sauce mixed soy sauce.
This one is with furikake (dried condiments for topping) also .
I used veggies and chicken breasts to cook it healthy, but It’s too much water to light taste…horrible
Hatsuga Genmai Ramen
“Hatsuga Genmai” means sprouted brown rice. This rise is more nutritious than white rice.
It is soy sauce flavored with black sesame seeds.
I topped it with Yakibuta,grilled pork, but it is correct to eat it with just vegetables.
The noodles are moderately firm. In addition, the sesame and soy sauce flavors are savory…this taste reminds me when my child times😌
Kansui is used to create the distinctive flavor and unique texture of ramen noodles. These turn yellow in color.
It contains a lot of phosphates. If you took in large quantities over a long time, you must cause serious calcium deficiency.
Originally mixed with lake water containing sodium carbonate in China, it has long been used in the production of noodles, wontons, and manju skins.
As long as you don’t consume it in large quantities every day, it’s fine. If you mind your health, I recommend you these ramen without chemical seasonings.

I’ll share them with you soon again😉
