They've become such an important part of Japan's culinary landscape that people often forget that ramen noodles were a 20th-century invention (or better, reinvention) and that the way we know them now, with countless variations and toppings, is even more recent –think several decades after World War II. We love noodles, but there's one thing stopping them becoming part of the whole world's diet: somewhere deep in their broth there is always some meat or fish, and that the noodles themselves are made of wheat, making them impossible for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-intolerant people to consume. And then came the ZenB Plant-Based Ramen Noodles!
Made by the Mizkan Group, a company with a history in food R&D and production going back to 1804, the ZenB Plant-Based Ramen Noodles contains noodles not made from wheat but yellow split peas, which means that they are gluten-free, absolutely vegetarian, rich in proteins and dietary fibers, and with an amazing flavor that will make you forget all the other ramen you have tried until now. What you get is eight servings of ramen and six packs of soups with all the standard soups: soy, miso, salt, tan-tan, and tonkotsu, plus a not so standard but super-tasty tomato chili!
