“Striped noodles are a staple of many Chinese foodstuffs, with a variety of varieties, from fried rice to noodle soup.
In the past year, however, Chinese restaurants have become increasingly concerned with rising levels of pollution, including the rise of spirulina, an algae-like growth found in spiruline noodles.”
I hope that the government will act swiftly to take steps to protect the health of people and to reduce spirulinine consumption,” said Xiao Zhaoxu, a 24-year-old who is part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Nutrition, Dietetics and Medicine (IINM).
In China, spirulines are commonly found in products made with rice, so Xiao hopes that authorities take action soon to stop this toxic substance from being introduced into the food supply.”
This will be a real problem for consumers, who are not aware that spirulinas are found in rice and that they can be harmful,” she said.”
There are so many people with cancer in China who have never seen the benefits of eating these noodles, and I hope the government is not slow to act.
