Our ramen is actually resistant to sogginess because of the high protein. It's dried not fried, removing additional fats nobody (no body) needs or wants. In fact, we custom built our own industrial microwave to perfectly heat, steam, and remove water from our noodles, leaving them ready to quickly cook when rehydrated.

Take Control Over Your Nutrition
Cooking Healthy Meals Is Difficult
The Department of Health & Human Services states, "...diet-related chronic disease rates have risen to pervasive levels and continue to be a major public health concern.” But, it’s hard to think about eating healthy after a hectic day, when job stress, life stress, people stress, all of it compounds. Who can muster the mental capacity to create a balanced meal for themselves or their loved ones? Sure, fast food is quick and easy, but it’s not healthy.
High-Protein Should Not Taste Like Chalk
Eating healthy is generally unsatisfying, boring, or complicated. Nobody was ever ecstatic about dining on steamed chicken, broccoli, & egg whites all of the time. Most high-protein shakes taste like chalk and those bars lean more towards cardboard than satisfying.
To The Rescue!
Healthy doesn’t look the same or mean the same to everyone. This is why our noodles are versatile, they remain naked, so you can make them your own, add what you wish, keep off what you don’t like or don’t have in your fridge. Swapping these noodles into your favorite recipes boosts your nutritional intake for the day, including a nice dose of dietary fiber— one of the most under-consumed nutrients whose absence is linked to several chronic diseases. You can also join the NOODist Colony to find new recipes every week. Finally, something good for you, something easy, something you will actually enjoy eating! We know healthy is not one-size-fits-all.
So, you do you, and let us worry about your nutrition.
YOUR BODY. YOUR HEALTH. YOUR NUTRITION. YOUR RECIPES.

(They said it couldn’t be done!)
“Naked Noods are the best. I love these healthy noodles, and we use them instead of regular pasta frequently for easy meals. We really like that we can add whatever we want to them and cook them up differently.”
“I’m a simple man, really, having a quick, tasty noodle I can just doctor and enjoy is a huge win. I’ve got a cabinet full of assorted stuff I throw on Naked Noods, gochujangs, various Fly By Jing condiments, sambals, sometimes I just holy trinity (butter salt pepper) a brick and call it a day, Old Bay noods, the world is my oyster, my extremely simple, tasty oyster.”
“I can add them to any dish that calls for plain noodles and know that I'm getting at least some nutrition, rather than normal noodles—even for mac & cheese!”
"Everyone deserves to be healthy, and we should be creating more options for people to be able to fit healthy, as defined by them, into their lifestyles."

The Naked Nood Details.
Some Frequently Asked Questions.
How is Naked Noods made?
What makes Naked Noods special?
We also make our own kansui, which gives our noodles that unsurpassable bite and chew. What is kansui, you ask? It’s alkaline water used in traditional ramen making which strengthens the gluten formations, giving noodles a chewy texture and distinctive yellow hue.
Are Naked Noods vegan/plant-based/halal/gluten free/low carb?
Our Naked Noods and Nanoboost are both vegan/plant-based and, to the best of our understanding, halal. However, it should be noted that they are not certified halal/kosher. Our noodles are also not gluten free or low carb, though it is often requested that we attempt to make gluten free or low carb noodles, we do not have the manufacturing capabilities needed to create this kind of product at this time.
How do you get so much protein into Naked Noods?
We use special rollers instead of extruders, because all of that protein makes it difficult to work the dough. That’s why they told us we couldn’t do it. So, we designed our own production line. We do it the (very) hard way of pushing it through rollers gradually to thin the dough out for the best bite and texture. Special grooves on the initial rollers help align the protein strands and laminate the layers together. All that protein makes this process incredibly hard to do! This also means there's nothing else like this out there!
Why is the noodle curly?
Naked Noods are curled, because curly noodles are superior to straight noodles in so many ways! They absorb more broth in each bite than a straight nood, sending small shots of joy into your tastebuds. Curly noodles are also ideal for thicker broths because of this. The wavy shape allows more noodles to fit into a smaller package, and they are far less likely to stick to each other during cooking. Shall I go on? They cook more evenly, have better flavor and taste, and are less fragile than their stick straight cousins.
