My mother made me dinner tonight and I had ramen noodles. The info I have found was only about the brand 'top ramen'. My mother also used the brand Maruchan. I am freaking out because I know 'top ramen' noodles are vegan but I don't know know about 'Maruchan'. Can someone help me out?

No flavor packets were used, only the noodles.

The noodles are vegan - but the flavor packet probably wasn't. I don't think that maruchan makes any vegan packet flavors (can anyone confirm/deny this?). 

 

If you are buying the noodles remember that the company doesn't know if you are eating the packet or not, and they don't care as long as you keep buying it. If the packet contains meat derivatives and you buy the packet, then you are telling the company you are fine with it containing the meat. 

 

If you were just desperate for a meal, and it was better than going hungry, there are probably worse things you could eat. But I personally would try to get noodles that contain vegan flavor packets too, even if you end up not using the packets.

I didn't purchase the noodles myself, my mother did. If I ever buy them myself I will buy it with vegan packets. I am very relived that the plain noodles are vegan, because that is all I ate.

I have actually done the same thing before in a pinch (visiting friends at their college dorm) - so I hope you didn't think I was coming off as harsh, I didn't mean to! I just wanted to make sure you thought about buying vegan ramen to begin with. 

 

Off topic - Adorable profile picture by the way, I love ratties!

No, I didn't think it was harsh. I only buy vegan food because otherwise I would be supporting cruelty.

 

Thanks! :) That's my female rat , Ivy. I care for three boys as well. (they are neutered, of course)
