Both fried and non-fried instant noodles are made using instant noodle machines. Wheat flour, water, and other ingredients are combined to create fried instant noodles, which are then shaped into thin noodles and deep-fried in oil until crispy. The noodles are prepared with a variety of spices and herbs after cooling.
The dough is still extruded into thin noodles for non-fried quick noodles, but this time, steaming and drying remove all moisture from the noodles before they are cooked. These noodles can be kept for a very long period and rehydrated before being eaten.
The dough mixer, extruder, and cutting machine are standard parts of both instant noodle machines. On the other hand, the drying machine is only used to produce non-fried instant noodles; the frying device is only used to make fried instant noodles.
Also, there is a machine for packaging instant noodles that can mechanically add flavor sachets like salt, oil, and powder to various instant noodles, including noodle cakes, blocks, or cups. With this equipment, there is no need for manual loading, which results in high efficiency.
