#3267: Vite Ramen Garlic Pork Instant Noodle Soup – United States

#3267: Vite Ramen Garlic Pork Instant Noodle Soup - United States

A few months ago I did a Meet The Manufacturer series on Vite Ramen, but the packs I tried were prototypes and not this, the finished product for version 1.0 (version 1.1 will be coming soon and I’ll be giving that a try when it comes out). It’s a neat concept brought to life by Tim & Tom Zheng.

A lot of people found the idea of a healthy instant noodle very compelling – so much so that they netted a quarter of a million dollars on their Kickstarter campaign. What we have here is the culmination of lots of work by them.

These packs have a myriad of benefits, including lots of vitamins and minerals, 30g of protein, low sodium, low fat, and is an excellent source of fiber.

It also has something that’s hard for people to get – potassium. You can a decent amount in a banana, but eating enough bananas to meet the goal  of potassium intake per day is going to have some side affects aside from the amount of sugar.This pack includes 25 percent of that.

As many of you know, I’ve been on a diet. I’ve been overweight most of my life. My doctor told me on October 18th, 2018 that I had high cholesterol, and pushed me to change my diet and exercise; something I’ve been told by doctors many times before. But I guess it was just the right time to do something about it. We got a jogging stroller and I started walking my daughter Miri on days my son has all day preschool. I also started using a fitbit and the My Fitness Pal app to track my intake and calorie burn.

I started slow; trying to get my step goal and trying to stay under the recommended calories for the day. It was hard at first, but I put myself in a good mindset and pushed forward. I started at 365lbs. I went back to the doctor on April 26th, 2019 – lost 65lbs and cholesterol is in check. I haven’t weighed myself, but I’ve gone down 6 pants sizes. I had to skip walking a couple days after last week too – Monday I walked 9.5 miles, Tuesday 10.5 miles, and Thursday I walked almost 15 miles and hit 30,000 steps. I guess I need to get some walking shoes that are better than the ones I get at Walmart in Richmond BC for $30CAD! I really jacked up my feet…

But in a couple weeks, I’ll find out how much I weigh at the doctor and report on that. I’m pretty stoked – I’m down to around 1200~1500 calories per day and it’s no problem at this point. As far as when I review, I have the tiniest amount of noodles and broth to sample – the rest goes down the drain. But I think today I’ll figure one of these packs into my regime and see how it goes. Let’s get started.

The noodle block.

Dry soup base powder. See contents in the video below.

The ‘Noodtrients’ sachet – this is where the protein and vitamins live.

Canola oil (if there was any doubt).

A mixture of vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg, spring onion, bbq pork, sesame seeds, and shichimi togarashi. Noodles are very hearty which I enjoyed. Broth has a nice homestyle kind of pork flavor to it, however is a little on the lass salty side. Vegetables jydrated well. An impressive feat achieved here. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  No bar code.

A vegetable mixture with 8 different varieties.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken, black sesame seeds, and spring onion. I’m definitely seeing a difference in this from the prototype. The noodle has a nice chew and texture – a unique one which worked well. The broth is on the light side; it’s not a salty bomb, however it has a good thickness and gives a taste of actual chicken broth that I liked. Very happy with the changes in addition to all the protein, low sodium, fiber, and vitamin benefits. Innovative and fresh. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  No bar code.
