Ready to warm us up this winter, Slendier’s ‘little-bit-fancy’ cup noodle range has fewer than 65 calories per 100g and is high in protein and low in fat
Slendier, a health-food company specialising in nutritious and low-calorie products, has launched Instant Cup Noodles made from soybean and authentic seasoning into the Australian grocery market.
As healthy as it is convenient, the low-carb, low-calorie, vegan meal alternative is available in three tasty flavours – Masala, Tom Yum and (soon-to-be-released) Vegetable Ramen – and are the most nutritionally rich instant noodles on the market.
Available online and in Woolworths’ health-food aisles, the ready-to-eat bean noodle product is the first-of-its-kind in the Australian market and is free from oils, chemicals and artificial flavours.
Slendier managing director, Erica Hughes, says the new range has a host of health benefits compared with other instant cup noodles and is perfect as a guilt-free snack or meal on the run.
“There’s no denying regular instant noodle cups are a quick and easy solution for many Aussies, but they’re often packed with sodium and have little nutritional value. At Slendier, we identified a gap in the market to offer people the same convenience, without the nasties.”
“Not only are Slendier’s instant cup noodles great tasting, but the range has twice as much protein, half as much fat and a third less calories when compared to other instant cup noodles on the supermarket shelves,” she said.
The flavour comes from real vegetables that have been washed, dried and ground into a fine powder – one that’s low in salt and entirely plant-based. Paired with Slendier’s innovative nonfried soybean noodles, it requires no cooking and can be ready in just four minutes.
Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill says the product hits the mark for a filling yet healthy food solution. “As a nutritionist, I’m always on the lookout for simple, nourishing, convenient alternatives for meals and snacks and Slendier Instant Cup Noodles definitely tick the box,” she says.
“They’re high in protein, yet lower in calories, carbs and fats than a traditional instant cup noodle. Using soybean noodles, Slendier Instant Cup Noodles deliver close to 30g protein and 12g fibre per serve, two important macronutrients to support our body’s growth and repair, gut health and of course to help keep appetite at bay. They’re delicious and ready within four minutes – a perfect snack or meal option for anyone wanting to maximise time and of course great nutrition in their day.”
Recent research shows the global market size for Instant Noodles is valued at US$51.65b, with the World Instant Noodles Association (yes, it exists) putting Australia at 19th in the world for demand, with 390 million serves per annum.
Hitting shelves now, Slendier’s new range of instant cup noodles will sell for $5.25 each, providing an easy and healthy meal or snack solution for the cooler months.
