    Ramen noodle shelf life

    I'm curious...what is the shelf life of Ramen noodles. I found some that I put up like 10 years ago and then forgot about...

    Long story short...I ate them...

    No unusual side effects as of yet, and other than wiping off a layer of dust that had settled on the box they tasted the same.

    Like most things, I think shelf life depends on the storage, if its hot and the sun or direct light hits it, it will go bad faster, but, I would feel that ramen noodles, stored in a "cool dark place" would last quite sometime. I always check expiration dates, just to give me an idea. Not that it cant be expired before said date. I hear that ramen noodles are "dipped" in an oil, to keep them seperated while cooking, and If I remember, the oil can turn rancid. With anything of questionable safety, if it smells bad, no way.. If it smells ok, cook it, try one bite, wait an hour...Just like a mouse..
    Long story short, I guess 10+ years??But, anything is possible..

    Longer then Twinkies & about the same nutritional value.

    I've heard people say they've had them go bad in as little as a year or year.5. I've had them that were several years old, just as good as new, but I've also had a package or two go bad pretty quickly. I don't know if it was storage or just the noodles themselves - but when they are bad you will know - they stink to high heaven. if they look and smell ok they should be fine and should keep for several years if stored properly, but as Deebo pointed out; they are packed with fat and will go rancid eventually.

    I always figured they would be good for a couple of hundred years.

    Some where there are a bunch of Ramen Noodles on a shelf speculating about the shelf life of humans. Trust me. You'll die of natural causes before any Ramen Noodles will if stored properly.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    So far so good no ill side effects from eating them. I haven't grown extra digits, started glowing in the dark or taken an extended visits to the throne...I agree they have the nutritional value of cardboard.

    To quote the 'ol saying. "Might not taste great, but it'll make a turd."

    The main ingredient is Enriched wheat flour. Never heard of anybody dieing from that.

    What's laughable is their serving size is a "1/2 block of noodles"!
