“Eat Your Noodles” Day

Five Food Finds about Noodles

  1. Dry noodles are considered a form of unleavened bread
  2. In China archaeologists discovered the world’s oldest bowl of noodles, thought to be over 4000 years old. They were made of millet flour.
  3. “Instant” noodles were invented in 1958. They are flash fried then quickly dried. This made for a long shelf life.(If they are kept dry, some say they will remain edible for decades)
  4. Over 40% of the flour in Asia is used to make noodles.  Feeding over half of the world’s population.
  5. Thomas Jefferson brought the first “macaroni” noodles to America in 1789 after returning from a trip to France.
