We have developed our rice flour noodles exclusively for Vegewel RICE NOODLES with the help of food manufacturer Nari. Nari is one of Japan’s leading manufacturers with access to leading milling technologies and products such as gluten free “Komachi Noodles”.
The result is a rice noodle which has been developed diligently so that it can be brought back to its original form within a mere 3 minutes and boiling water.
A well-balanced variety of domestic rice is used to create a mochi like enjoyable texture.
You will be able to taste the sweet undertones of the rice with each bite. The quality of our ingredients will also leave you feeling full and satisfied.
Our soup is made with zero animal products, food additives, chemical seasonings, yeast extract, added sugar or sweeteners. With a mild and gentle flavor you will want to enjoy it down to the last drop.
Traditional Japanese methods and fermented seasonings are used to ensure that there is umami in each spoonful of our vegetable and mushroom soup base.
【Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce】
Our naturally brewed soy sauce is sourced from Muroji, the oldest soy sauce shop in Japan founded in 1573 in Tensho.
This soy sauce is brewed using ground soybeans and wheat from Fukui Prefecture, natural salt and Hakusan mineral-rich groundwater. Each bach is brewed for about a year using a traditional method and no additives that dates back to the Edo period.
The delicate taste, aroma and richness of more than 300 amino acids from the Koji fungi create a complex and rich taste that cannot be imitated.
Mirin-kasu is a by-product made in the manufacturing process after the mirin has been strained. It possesses a deep umami and sweetness thanks to the fermentation and aging process of glutinous rice and Koji cultures.
Vegewel RICE NOODLES uses “Mikawa Mirin,” which is highly rated even among top mirin brewers. They are the oldest brewers of mirin in Japan with a 240 year history of excellence.
It is carefully made by craftsmen using tried and true manufacturing methods. This leads to a final product with an elegant sweetness, rich fragrance and plenty of umami.
【Tree Grown Shiitake Mushrooms from Kyushu】
We have sourced our shiitake mushrooms from Kyushu. These mushrooms have been grown through a raw wood cultivation method. The fungi are planted on trees (such as Kunugi and Quercus) and are cultivated over two years as they receive a bounty of nutrients from the sun and earth.
This method takes considerably longer than the common fungus bed cultivation method (3 months). However, it is worth it as it produces a delicious and umami filled shiitake.
【Onions from Awajishima】
We use onions grown in mineral rich soil under the Awaji Island sun. Onions from Awajishima are characterized by their higher sugar content making them sweet and not too spicy or strong in taste.
【Himalayan Pink Salt】
For salt, we pride ourselves on using himalayan salt which is characterized by a higher mineral content and understated sweetness when compared to refined salt.
We use a state of the art dehydrator that uses low temperature steam to preserve four kinds of vegetables sourced from Japan (yacon, broccoli, radish and carrot).
The nutrients are preserved due to the low temperatures used when drying. Simply adding water will bring the vegetables back to their original nutrient full state.
The added vegetable filling and soup account for 125g of your daily vegetables.This makes up 1/3 of The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s recommendation of 350g per day in just one meal.
【Yacon from Hokkaido】
Yaco is a root vegetable native to the Andes, characterized by a gentle sweetness and crispy texture.
Yacon has been gaining attention in recent years due to its many health benefits. This crop is known to have a high content of fructooligosaccharides which are said to improve the gut flora as they can be converted into bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria within the intestine. All which lead to a healthy and happy gut.
【Broccoli from Hokkaido】
In addition to being particularly rich in vitamin C, it is a great source of folic acid, vitamin E, vitamin K, and potassium.
【Daikon from Aichi】
Rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C and digestive enzymes.
【Carrots from Aichi】
High in beta-carotene which is beneficial as an antioxidant and in improving immunity.
- Please remove the noodles, soup and fillings from their bags and place them into the cup. Please make sure to take out the oxygen absorber.
- Pour 300ml of boiling water (roughly 2cm from the top of the cup) into the cup and stir well so the soup is evenly dissolved.

1. Are there any GMOs in your product?
We proudly do not use any genetically modified ingredients so you can enjoy our products with ease.
2. Can I eat this product if I have a wheat allergy?
The soy sauce that we use is the only ingredient that contains wheat. However, the wheat contained in soy sauce is described in the “Guidelines for Nutritional Meal Guidance for Food Allergies by the Health and Labor Science Research Group 2017” as follows:
“Wheat allergens are lost in the brewing process of wheat when used as a raw material for soy sauce. Therefore, even if there is a wheat label in the raw material, it is basically not necessary to remove it from the soy sauce.”
Based on this information, we believe that even those who are allergic to wheat can enjoy our product. However, there are individual differences in allergic reactions so please use discretion when choosing to eat our product.
3. Why is it more expensive than other cup noodles?
The main reason is that the cost of each ingredient is significantly higher than that of ordinary cup noodles, due to our careful selection of safe, secure and delicious ingredients. In addition, the current production quantity has also had an effect on the overall price.
We are striving to increase the production volume in order to offer this product at a more affordable price in the near future.
4. Is glucose added to the dried vegetables?
Vegewel RICE NOODLES do not contain any added glucose. We have kept the vegetables in their original state.
5. Is this the same product as the one that was crowdfunded before?
This product is new and improved from the one that was initially available in 2018. After receiving feedback we have improved upon the taste and ingredients for the new version of this product.
