Health Benefits of Udon
The main constituent of Udon is carbohydrate. Carbohydrate is the nutrient found in rice, bread, and noodles, which changes to glucose and glycogen in the body. Glycogen becomes both a physical and mental energy source. Compared to other foods, Udon is digested very quickly and rapidly becomes a source of energy for our mind and body. Thus, Udon aids in increased performance when concentration and thinking are required. Udon is suited for lunch as a healthy afternoon energy source in place of coffee.
In testing the effect of Udon, three different types of noodles: Ramen, pasta, and Udon, were served to three men separately and their body temperatures were checked. Right after eating the noodles, all of their temperatures rose. After 2 hours, the temperatures of the two men who ate ramen and pasta had decreased but the person who ate Udon maintained the increased temperature. Although all of the noodles were eaten hot, Udon helps maintain body temperature, and is effective for cold. This is due to Udon's quick digestibility. The three types of noodles were soaked in digestive enzymes at the body temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius. After two hours, only Udon was completely digested. It is digested at a speed three times as fast as beef. Therefore, Udon is recommended for people who have colds and/or weakened digestive function.
