Ex-con cooks up tasty ramen

Chow down! This ex-con knows a little about un-nutritious prison food — that's why he created his own tasty brand of ramen for inmates. 🍜😋

    DO NOT order from this company. Their old social media is full of people (myself included) that ordered noodles from them as late as July 2019 and have YET to receive their orders. Then they bought a food truck with our money and started new socials. Wild. Save your money!

    This is actually great and a lot of the commentary here is tragically simple-minded. Sure, packaged ramen has very little nutritional value but the high sodium levels in it causes harm rather than stay in neutral space of “not great but not harming either” that is necessary when the greatest necessity is simply getting calories in. Obesity, hypertension, and other health concerns relating to sodium disproportionately effect Hispanic people and non-Hispanic Black people than any other group (CDC.gov), the same groups that have a disproportionately high incarceration rate. Not only are people in these groups being arrested at far higher rates than white people, they are being fed food that actively tries to inhibit their avenues to success by giving them new health concerns that will hinder them financially upon release in addition to the stigma present for those released from prison. A similar argument can be made for those with fewer financial resources. The most readily affordable foods for someone with too little to spare is revoltingly processed and crammed full of sodium. If these are the calories they can afford, these are the calories they will consume. A lower sodium option at an affordable price is a positive step. These products are available online and at the moment a 24 pack is $10. And if you’re not looking out for the welfare of those imprisoned or in the lower class, ramen noodles are a versatile meal option. Add veggies and meats of choice. Try new Asian sauces with your noodles. It’s a low cost meal that pleases.

    Why are prisoners given rubbish food filled with salt? They must be constantly thirsty apart from anything else.

    Ramen has almost NO nutritional value whatsoever.... It's just a bunch of carbs. no vitamins, no nutrients, nothing to keep you healthy. it'll keep you alive, but it's not healthy in any capacity. lowering the sodium is a good thing, but it's still not a healthy option. what he needs to do next is to add vitamins and minerals to his product if he is concerned about their health and safety.

    I love this idea but I’m from miami and most people I knew locked up and has been sent to different states to prison comes out healthy with zero body fat all muscles. So even in prison you still have to exercise and be active to prevent obesity.
