I Made FRESH Ramen Noodles From Scratch...

  • Published on Oct 28, 2017
  • Delicious Noodles using Science and a very unusual ingredient. Ep1 : tvclip.biz/video/JyZjoJcvHvE/video.html Ramen Noodles aka Chinese Noodles are very different than pasta, mainly because of their secret alkaline ingredient. In this second episode of My Ramen Addiction Series, I am showing you how to make FRESH noodles from scratch using science and a very unusual ingredient that I baked myself in my oven...
    Many Noodles recipe call for Baking soda, but that ingredient is not strong enough to make Ramen noodles and their very distinctive chewiness and springiness. Baked Baking Soda can solve that problem. If you don't have a pasta machine, place the ramen noodles dough into a solid plastic bag and stamp it with your feet.

    I agree that pasta and Chinese noodles are not the same. You have shown that. However, some homemade Chinese noodles are looking more tagliatelle.

    Bonjour Alex, vas-tu faire les "la main" chinois ? Ces nouilles sont fort proches des "ramen" mais nettement plus difficiles à maîtriser me semble-t-il... ton aide me sera d'un grand secours. En attendant, merci beaucoup pour cette recette-ci que j'ai déjà fait plein de fois avec un bouillon végétalien. Bonne continuation.

    A note: all that we were always told about saturated fat vs health is debunked by plenty of modern studies. Specifically, fat, including saturated fat, correlates with fewer heart issues, not more, in a number of vast epidemiologic studies:
    If that seems crazy to you remember that a few decades ago MHD were pressuring pregnant women to favor powder milk. Then they pressured her to do the opposite. It's more or less how medical science works apparently. Maybe in a few decades, a new stud will find that saturated fats were indeed bad, but only if eaten on a Friday?

    Ahhh man. I thought he was going to hand pull these noodles, then it woulda been authentic. The whole thing about the alkaline is that it makes the dough super elastic, otherwise, they could not be hand-pulled. That’s also why true-ramen has a kinky texture.

    Baking the Baking Soda, turns it into Washing Soda. Is that really okay to use a cleaning agent in the preparation of food? Yes, it is all natural and started out as a food ingredient, a lot of food ingredients can make really good cleaning products. I am just trying to get my head around the idea of this.

  • Distrion Gaming
    Distrion Gaming 2 months ago

    Alex, a lot of people also bake the baking soda to make it more alkaline and increase the pH of the water even further! Google it to see. Also, the best type of noodles are the wavy egg noodles like the ones I get at my favorite ramen place. Can you revisit this and do an episode for wavy egg noodles? I can't find the recipe anywhere.

    sodium bicarbonate in high doses can cause kidney problems, why? well.. sodium is essentially salt, kosher salt is sodium chloride, table salt is sodium iodide, all salt is essentially sodium mixed with something to make a soluble mineral, sodium is a highly reactive metal by default after all.
    (how reactive? how about it goes boom if you drop it in water)
