In this fast-paced world, most people want things quick and easy. Food manufacturers have responded to these needs and over the years have developed instant foods. Instant foods are foods that provide convenience to consumers and assists in reducing the time of preparation, whereby for most of such foods no more than five minutes of time is required from the time of food preparation to the food being consumed. Such foods include noodles, instant porridge, instant rice, instant soup, instant pudding and quick-cooking oatmeal. Interested in quick and easy foods? Look no further and explore here for a variety of instant foods available in Zambian stores.

Instant foods are convenience foods which require minimal preparation, typically just adding water or milk Some authors define "instant" food as requiring less than five minutes of preparation and "ultra-instant food" as requiring less than one minute. Instant foods are often dehydrated, freeze-dried, or condensed.

A vast majority of instant noodles are low in calories, but are also low in fibre and protein. They are also notorious for being high in fat, carbohydrates, and sodium. While you will be able to get some micronutrients from instant noodles, they lack important nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B12, and more.

Instant foods can and are produced commercially via spray-drying preblended mixtures, or utilization of freeze-drying, drum-drying, or extrusion. Starches used in foods of this type generally contribute to the product functionality and characteristics.

The marketing concept behind the idea of instant food is that people in fast-paced, mobile societies no longer have the time to cook and prepare food in the traditional manner, yet they still want meals that are nutritious and taste good.

Ready-to-eat foods include:

  • Soft cheeses such as brie, feta, ricotta, blue-veined, and Mexican-style soft cheeses such as queso fresco (unless it is made with pasteurized milk)
  • Soft-serve ice cream.
  • Hot dogs, luncheon meats, cold cuts.
  • Pâtés/meat spreads – unless canned.
  • Precooked chicken and other meats.

Common canned foods include fruits, vegetables, beans, soups, meats, and seafood.

Excess consumption of MSG promotes sluggishness in the body. It may also cause headache, nausea, increased thirst and a twitching sensation in the mouth. In some cases one may feel numbness, skin rashes and excessive sweating too.

There's nothing nutritious about cup noodles AT ALL. One cup of maggi contains from 1600 - 2000mg of sodium, which equals to 4 - 5 teaspoons of salt and your daily limit. There's no dietary fibre, vitamins, or nutrients if you have it on its own.

Although it is marketed as nutrient-rich and high in proteins, Maggi is not loaded with nutrients and fibre. In fact, it is high in carbohydrate (refined flour), which is not good for health if consumed regularly
