eli5: Why are ramen noodles yummy to eat raw but spaghetti noodles are not? 164 viewsOctober 21, 2020 Question34.21K October 18, 2020 3 Answers eli5: Why are ramen noodles yummy to eat raw but spaghetti noodles are not?In: Chemistry MultiFazed commented October 18, 2020 It’s because ramen noodles aren’t raw. They’re pre-cooked and then dehydrated, which is what allows you to prepare instant ramen in just a couple of minutes by rehydrating them, instead of having to boil the noodles for 15+ minutes like you’d have to do if they were uncooked. Baktru commented October 18, 2020 Ramen noodles are precooked, they’re not raw any more. Spaghetti noodles weren’t cooked before yet. Commercial-Support90 commented October 19, 2020 Just to add on, IMO raw spaghetti noodles taste good to me, I’ll often grab a couple when making a pot to munch on while the rest cooks. But dry ramen noodle noodles taste absolutely terrible to me, so it is probably up to individual taste. 0 AnswersActiveVotedNewestOldest Register or Login Other Questions You Might Be Interested In:Why does opening new tabs make me forget in the same way when you walk into a room?ELI5- Physiologically, how does one increase "endurance" and what does that look like in our body?ELI5- How does your phone know when you touch the screen?What's the objective difference between a TV and a monitor?In a movie, where the protagonist is badly injured and about to die, they start using defibrillators...Eli5: How do cancer drugs kill cancerous and precancerous cells?
