  What Happens To Your Body When You Eat Instant Ramen Every Day

It’s no secret that instant Ramen is full of preservatives and other artificial ingredients — together, they not only allow manufacturers to cram a lot of intense flavor into a small package, but also to ensure everything maintains its intended texture and flavor after weeks — or even months — of storage.

One of the most controversial of these ingredients is the preservative TBHQ, an artificial antioxidant used to prevent the oils in instant Ramen from becoming stale, according to Cooking Light. Besides its use in processed foods, it’s also used as a preservative in some paints and varnishes. And, while legally permitted as a food additive, Cooking Light noted that it’s been linked to vision disturbances in humans and to neurological disorders in rats. 

But, surprisingly, a study in Current Drug Metabolism (cited in PubMed), found evidence that consumption of TBHQ may have an anti-carcinogenic effect due, in part, to its function as an antioxidant. But the authors of the study also acknowledged that several other studies have linked heavy consumption of TBHQ to increases in cancer, though the factors linking the two “are not well understood.” In other words, the jury’s still out whether TBHQ contributes to cancer. So, to be safe, you might want to limit your consumption of TBHQ-heavy foods such as instant Ramen.
