My brother was eating these ' Fat free, no MSG' ramen noodles the other day, and I was reading the back of the package. I found them to be vegetarian, unlike many other kinds of ramen noodles. I put the package down for a moment, and when I returned it was gone. So I can't remeber the band or name.

Some of Thai Kitchen's instant rice noodles are vegan but not all of them.

i like to make some more interesting chinese dishes (from the Wagamama cookbook- some are veg and many can be modified) and several of them involve ramen noodles. i buy the package and then throw away the flavoring, but even so, i would feel bad paying for a flavor packet that had beef stock in it. so i buy top ramen's oriental flavor. (it's vegetarian) also, if i have that, i can always get really lazy and just have the ramen... hehe. i'm a college student, what can i say.

Top Ramen Oriental flavor are vegetarian. You may also want to check out an Asian market. They'll usually have several vegetarian varieties of ramen noodles that are much cheaper than the health food store kind. Thai Kitchen makes some really yummy rice noodle soups that are veg*n. I love the Spring Onion flavor.

I'm hooked on the Thai Kitchen noodles too, unfortunately the sodium content is super high.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose? Purchasing animal products but throwing them away?

There are several brands of Asian ramen noodles that are veg. I like Ichiban Sapporo Oriental Flavor (says it contains milk here, my package does not) and Jin Ramyun. They are usually in the ethnic aisle and not the ramen noodle aisle of the grocery store and cost a whole 50 cents instead of 10 for $1 but the portion is 3 times as big.



This kind is good too...

There is a brand called Ty Ling that are veggie friendly. They have msg, though. The Flavor is just called "original." They are darn good.

I've heard that the Ramen Noodles are high in trans fat. Although it is not yet listed on the ingredients, I believe it. Does anyone know if Thai Kitchen's products are also high in trans fat? Trying to avoid the stuff!! Thanks

I got some ramen noodles made by Westbrae Farms(?) that advertise the noodles are "baked not fried". I think your typical ramen noodles are fried. I am not sure if I recommend the Westbrae or not. Their packages are expensive ($2.00) and small.
