Wow, if I'd known that while living off of ramen in college...

Nah, I'd still eat the stuff.

similar foods, using a tiny "M2A" (that stands for Mouth to Anus, and it's trademarked, mind you)

Not that I'm promoting unhealthy eating, and I understand what she's getting at, but her methodology is horrible.

She has only shown that a given set of food items digests differently than an entirely different set in an entirely different person. The fact that the foods in the two sets are similar is irrelevant.

Show one person, on an empty stomach, eating ramen noodles and water.
Then, show the same person eating homemade noodles and water. Compare results.
Then, show a second person doing the exact same two steps. Compare results.
Repeat with the other food items, preferably with a statistically-significant number of people.

Again, I understand what the person doing this is trying to accomplish, but this was just stupid. This doesn't actually illustrate anything useful. It's misleading. It's sensationalist junk with a faux-scientific polish on it to make it more appealing.

Much like a processed food.

Or at the very least, feed the same combination of foods to different people. Then feed the different combinations to the same set of people. Pretty much anything other than "feed different foods to different people" would be an improvement.

I just hate junk science. Pardon the RRRAAAAAAGGGGGEEEEE.

I was concerned about this as well. I don't see it mentioned in the article, but in the video around 1:20 they mention that the subject and meal were switched. So it does sound like they ran both mass manufactured and fresh made through each person at separate times. There is still some concern with the significantly significant data set (or lack thereof) and the scaremongering comparisons to various food additives to more common petroleum based products.
 
2012-02-09 02:47:23 PM  
I don't get it. Did the person who ate the ramen not chew or something?
 
2012-02-09 02:48:41 PM  

TheOmni: significantly significant data set


I went back to change a typo and somehow switched what word I meant to say. Contextually I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.

So, she demonstrated the dangers of feeding people products derived from tough-to-digest petrochemicals...By making them swallow an indigestible camera encased in plastic?

I can't be the only one who sees the issue with that.

I'm bothered by the fact that the device is probably expensive, and thus used multiple times.

Same here...but mostly because I love my laziman's ramen stir fry.

1.boil up some ramen with some frozen veggies
2.heat up oil in a large pan, begin frying a couple eggs while the ramen finishes
3.drain all the water from the ramen, pour contents into pan, add a bit of soy sauce
4.enjoy
 
2012-02-09 04:40:55 PM  
I was expecting this to be about salt from the ramen and electrolytes from the sports drink causing you to retain a ridiculous amount of water.

also, she said mouth to anus. hehehe

Ramen is not food. That would be the point.
 
2012-02-09 06:30:30 PM  
"TBHQ... related to Butane... the gas used to fill lighters".

How is this relevant?

She claimed they used salt in their noodle recipe - Sodium Chloride, related to Sodium and Chlorine. You know, An explosive metal and a deadly gas.....

It was an odd video... like a grad student doing something on her own, not approved by her adviser. She made some odd points, and it was weird how she kept showing her face in the beginning. It's just not particularly professional or scientific, at least what I gleaned.

this recipe looks pretty easy, inexpensive and much better for you!

The only thing they won't have at my rural grocery is bonito flakes (dried shrimp), maybe throw some shrimp shells in with the broth and remove later and use a few whole or diced shrimp and add them at the end so they don't cook too much. And togarashi (quick google), which is chili pepper, so you can substitute cayenne pepper (dried, ground) or some finely diced jalapenos or serrano pepper.

Oh, also enoki mushroom. Sub some cremini mushrooms halved?

enjoy!

Wow.. the video proved nothing and provided no substantive evidence for her conclusion. Pretty disappointed because it sounded like it was going to be interesting.. I usually enjoy TED presentations.

The ramen noodles weren't processed as quickly by the stomach? Okay, that's an observation.. doesn't really amount to anything without more data.. nothing in that presentation seemed to show that scientific methodology was being used.

And the bias of the presenter was pretty overwhelming considering that the experiment was entirely subjective.

POOP NOODLES.

I'm guessing the "whole foods" version was much softer/overcooked too.

Anyone else that the whole food timestamp was 10 minutes ahead of the processed food towards the end? SCIENCE!

Recently people have been trying to catalog and quantify the "gut flora" - microbes that live in the intestines and are necessary for proper digestion.

One early result is that people who drink alcohol often have an largely different flora composition than those who drink occasionally or never. In fact the human digestive mechanism can slowly alter to adapt to a high or low alcohol diet.

How do we not know that the raman and gatoraid eater is not also a high alcohol consumer? If that was my diet I would probably also drink heavily.

Eating a kot of those cheap ramen noodles will make your crap hard and can lead to some serious constipation.

This is actually surprising considering that the last time I bought some of the ramen noodles (or went to buy, then put them back), I looked at the nutritional info and they are loaded with fat and calories; or at least the brand that was on sale, and I looked at was. You would logically think if they are so hard to digest, that they wouldn't be very high in either cal/fat... must get it from the spice packet.


/need to make them so you can barely digest them at all... make for an interesting dump to leave in a friend's toilet right before you left their place

Ramen noodles are compressed into squares and fried. That's why they have so much fat and calories.

I agree with you on this. Several times she offered up opinions without supporting facts. She is just looking to get people all worked up over something we all already know.
You mean what I buy in a small package for 60cents is not good for me?!! WHUUUUUUUUU?!

I'm bothered by the fact that you can go grocery shopping, legally be sold 'food' made with petrochemicals, and have to be a chemist to figure it out.
