Did you know? LG Noodles need not be stored in refrigerator
(For Export & Retail products)
You don't have to worry about squeezing your noodles in an already compacted and limited space in the refrigerator. These spaces can be used to put your perishable items such as fresh meat, dairy and fruits. LG noodles such as Kway Teow, Hor Fun, Mee Tai Bak, Handmade Yellows, Tai Lok Mee etc had gone through heat treatment which makes it shelf life stable in ambient condition.
Yellow Noodles experiment stored in ambient condition
We had conducted a small scale experiment outside of our R&D lab for a period of 4.5 months and pictures were taken monthly to keep track the condition of LG noodles. The temperature outside of our lab is about 23 to 25 oC and the shelf life of LG noodles is 4 months as it had gone through heat pasteurization process which makes it last longer. From the 1st - 4th month, our noodles remained bright and yellowish which is the ideal and its best condition. Once the noodles is stored past the expiry date, it started turning a darker yellow which is an indication of spoilage.

What is pasteurization?
Pasteurization is a heat treatment process on liquid or food to kill pathogenic bacteria to make the food safe to eat and to extend the shelf life of a product. Our process is based on Low-Temperature-Long-Time Treatment (LTLT) — this process uses lower heat for a longer time to kill pathogenic bacteria. Pasteurizing or treating the product at high temperatures for a longer or shorter period of time is a delicate phase in the food processing cycle. The high temperature-shorter treatment time pasteurization is the norm in reducing bacteria of the product. Heat treatment extends food shelf life without unacceptably changing its taste or texture.
Extending the shelf life of stable food
Without pasteurization, the shelf life of the noodles will not sustain for long. Normal shelf life for our Yellow Noodles and Kway Teow is about 4-5 days without pasteurizing. Whereas after pasteurizing, they can last for at least 4 months. In short, pasteurization lengthens the shelf life of the products and to remove any microbes in the noodles.
Shelf stable food
Shelf-stable food (sometimes ambient food) is a type of food that can be safely stored at room temperature in a sealed container or packaging. This includes foods that would normally be stored In chilled condition but which have been processed so that they can be safely stored at room or ambient temperature for a usefully long shelf life. For LG noodles, it has gone through heat processing which allows our consumers to store our products in ambient condition.
Cooking instructions for Yellow Noodles
Firstly, bring a pot of water to boil. Let it boil until bubbles formed.
Soup: Blanch the noodles at for 10 - 20 sec before serving.
Note: The longer the time used, the softer the noodles.
Stir-Fry: Stir-Fry the product with other ingredients such as sauces, vegetables, etc for 20 - 30 sec.
Note: The noodles will be burnt if stir-fried over a long duration.
