"Indo" stands for "Indonesia" and "Mie" stands for "noodles" in the Chinese language, therefore "Indomie" stands for "noodles from Indonesia or Indonesian noodle". Both Indomie and IndoMie can be used to describe the brand. Several advertisements in Indonesia show a variety of customers eat Indomie, usually ended by the chorus "Indomie, Seleraku", "Majulah Indonesiaku" (Indonesia Independence Day only), and "Maafkan Lahir Batin" (Eid Mubarak only).

Mi goreng[edit]

Cooked Indomie Mi goreng Iga penyet (Indonesian Spicy Ribs) flavor, served with fried egg and vegetables.

The "Mi goreng" ("stir fry") range of instant noodles by Indomie entered the market in 1983 and are distributed in North America, Europe, Africa, Australasia and various regions in Asia. The brand name "Mi goreng" is Indonesian for "fried noodle", and is based on the Indonesian dish Mie goreng. The brand flavours are sold in varying weight packets, around 85g, and contain two sachets of flavourings. The first sachet has three segments and carries the liquid condiments: sweet soy sauce, chilli sauce, and seasoning oil with garlic flakes. The other sachet has two segments for dry seasoning powder and flake of fried scallion. In some regions, Indomie Mi goreng is also available in jumbo (120 gram) packs.[2]

In 2006, Indomie launched a new variant Indomie Mi Goreng Kriuuk.. 8x. In this product, 8x means "Lebih banyak, Lebih renyah, Lebih gurih, Lebih gede" (translated: more noodles, crunchier, more delicious, larger), in three flavours: Chicken, Onion, Spicy.

Indomie Mi Goreng is certified halal.

Indomie Mi Goreng contains phenylalanine, so individuals suffering from phenylketonuria should avoid the seasoning. Indomie Mi Goreng also contains Monosodium glutamate (MSG : listed as flavour enhancer 621), making it unsuitable for some individuals with "severe, poorly controlled asthma".[3]

Additionally flavour enhancer 631 can be prepared from meat extract and/or dried sardines, but it can also be created via a microbial synthesis process from a vegetable source,[4] and flavour enhancer 627 is isolated from sardines and/or yeast extract. The inclusion of flavour enhancer 631 and the way it was prepared means Indomie Mi Goreng may or may not be suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
