Balanced Intake of Nutrients Without Sacrificing Appearance or
The NISSIN FOODS Group Delicious Complete Nutrition Meals is a meal
that controls calories, salt, sugar, fat, and protein, maintaining the appearance and taste of the meal,
while offering all 33 nutrients designated by the Dietary Reference Intakes for Japanese in well-balanced
In this way, consumers can maintain a good nutritional balance by simply eating what they enjoy.
We are engaged in the development of these dream-like Future Foods.
We have developed more than 300 foods already, including pork cutlet, napolitan, which is ketchup-based spaghetti, and beef curry.
Although the concept of a Complete Nutrition Meal has existed in the past, actually creating a delicious
product proved impossible, as packing in all the essential nutrients such (vitamins and minerals, etc.)
resulted in bitter and harsh tastes.
The NISSIN FOODS Group Delicious Complete Nutrition Meals offers so much delicious taste that it is
impossible to tell the difference between our meals and ordinary meals.
This has only become possible through our proprietary and cutting-edge food technologies cultivated over
many years in instant noodles and other products.
For example, we make full use of (1) technologies to reduce salt
while maintaining delicious taste;
(2) technologies to reduce fat while maintaining delicious taste; (3) technologies to reduce calories
while maintaining delicious taste; (4) technologies to mask harsh or bitter tastes; and (5) technologies
to prevent nutrient loss during cooking.
The rice used for curry and rice is “resynthesized,” meaning rice that has been broken down once, after
which sugars and salt have been removed and dietary fiber and other ingredients have been added.
By making full use of the aforementioned technologies for reducing salt and fat, we have established a
technology that allows us to freely control and reduce salt, sugar, and fat content up to roughly 50%.
In fact, in a clinical trial in which approximately 40 meals were replaced with our Complete Nutrition
Meal over a period of about 4 weeks, more than 80% of the participants experienced a reduction in body
weight, a decrease in visceral fat area, and other results.
