Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DRYING INSTANT NOODLES
Abstract:
The present invention addresses the problem of providing a method of drying non-fried noodles in order to obtain non-fried noodles in which individual noodles do not stick together, and the noodles come apart more easily and have excellent restorability. In the present invention, a step for drying non-fried noodles comprises a step for feeding alphaized noodles into a retainer either having small holes on a bottom surface, the total surface area of the small holes being 30% or less of the surface area of the bottom surface, or not having small holes on the bottom surface, i.e., a retainer having an aperture ratio of 0-30%, and blowing a high-speed air flow, preferably an air flow having a wind speed of 50 m/s or higher, onto the individual noodles on the retainer from above the retainer.
