Preliminary Justification : The consumption of instant noodle is widespread in many countries around the world. Although many studies indicated that there are strongly association between instant noodles’ consumption and occurrence of metabolic risks, increased risk of NCDs, consumption of instant noodles is continuously rising. During recent decade, consumption of instant noodles becomes popular in Myanmar due to industrialization and changing lifestyles.
