About Indomie Mi Goreng[edit]

Mi Goreng is Indonesian for "fried noodle". Indomie Mi Goreng is simply abbreviated as Indomie goreng by most Indonesians. Indomie Goreng is a type of instant noodle served without soup and is stirred well with soysauce, oil, and seasoning. This instant noodle derived its inspiration from traditional Indonesian dish called mi goreng, a variant of fried noodle common in Indonesia. Many street vendors sell it and traditional mi goreng is considered as common food by the people. This product has gained a cult following in Indonesia and in various other countries, such as Nigeria and Australia.[1]

Indomie goreng weights vary for each variant, the original Indomie goreng weights 85g and contains two sachets of seasoning pack. The first sachet has three segments and carries the liquid condiments: sweet soy sauce, chili sauce, and seasoning oil with Garlic flakes.

Dietary information[edit]

Indomie Mi Goreng is certified Halal (حلال, halāl, halall).

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.
