Instant ramen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner will take care of all your vitamin, mineral, and protein requirements, company says.

Over the years, Cup Noodle maker Nissin has gotten very, very good at what it does. The company’s array of products is filled with so many easy, convenient, and tasty options that it can feel like a waste of time and effort to do any sort of cooking more involved than pouring in some hot water and waiting a few minutes for your noodles to cook.

The downside, though, is that a diet consisting of instant ramen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner probably isn’t going to be all that nutritious, right? Actually, Nissin seems to have solved even that problem, with its new All-in Noodles series.

Each packet of instant ramen includes over a third of the body’s daily requirements for 13 different vitamins, 13 minerals, protein, and dietary fiber. That might seem impossible, but the noodles used for All-in Noodles are no simple strands of starch. Instead, each noodle has a nutrient-packed core with a standard noodle coating, which Nissin says preserves the texture and flavor of the noodle while also reducing the amount of carbohydrates by 40 percent compared to ordinary ramen.

In addition to a pack of plain noodles, you can get All-in Noodles as one of three cup ramen mazesoba (brothless) varieties. The Abura Ramen comes with spicy rayu oil, chashu pork, and green onions, the Thai-inspired Tom Yum is seasoned with lemongrass, coconut milk, and cilantro, and the Tantan noodles have the fiery kick of Szechuan pepper.

▼ The plain noodles require four minutes of cooking time and the cup varieties six, so you’ll need a little more patience than you would for standard three-minute instant ramen.

▼ If you’re buying the plain-pack noodles, Nissin has some ideas about how to spruce them up.

The All-in Noodles are being initially offered through Nissin’s Lohaco online shop. An individual pack of plain noodles cost 400 yen (US$3.70) while the cup versions are all 600 yen, but there are discounts for bundle orders, including 10 percent off for half-dozen cup orders and 20 percent off for 30-packs of plain noodles. Orders can be placed at the bottom of the All-in Noodles website here, with shipping scheduled to start August 19.
