Usually, Nissin adds twists and upgrades to their flagship instant ramen star Cup Noodle by introducing new flavors such as french fries and chicken nuggets, or unveiling new low carb protein packed versions of the popular instant noodles.

This time, however, Nissin is getting attention for helping people get rid of their noodles--after they've finished eating them, of course. Nissin has recently announced that hey have developed a special powder that solidifies the leftover soup in your Cup Noodle to make throwing away your finished meal and container an easy and eco-friendly disposal!

While some choose to down their Cup Noodle broth or even use delicious recipes to transform it into a traditional Japanese dessert, others will typically toss it out to either cut on calories or simply when full.

When at home or anywhere with a sink, it's as easy as pouring out the broth and then tossing the cup. However, when out and about at work, school, on the road, or doing something like camping, it can be hard to get rid of your broth. This is particularly true in Japan where garbage needs to be separated thoroughly upon disposal.

Nissin Cup Noodle's new powder developed in collaboration with Kobayashi Pharmaceutical Co. solves that problem. Simply pour the hardening powder in the remaining soup, stir for about 10 seconds, and leave it for a moment. The solidified soup then can be thrown away along container as burnable garbage.

The "Cup Noodle Leftover Soup Solidifying Powder" will be given as a gift to those who purchase Cup Noodle at the Nissin Foods Group Online Store, and will also be distributed at an event to be held at PICA Resort, a camping ground operated by Pika Corporation, starting Wednesday, March 31st.
