Why is my urine always yellow after eating noodles? I personally, have noticed that whenever I do eat any type of noodles especially Indomie, my first urine after the noodles is always pure yellow no matter the amount of water I take during meal.
Initially, I thought that I had malaria but when I explained to the nurse who gave me anti-malaria drug a week ago, what she asked me was how frequent do I eat noodles.
Well, Indomie has been my favourite fast food especially at home when I don’t have the opportunity to cook any other food.
However, before I go into conclusion as to why my urine always yellow after eating noodles, let’s look into the ingredients used in packaging noodles.
- Wheat flavour
- Vegetable oil (palm oil)
- Iodized salt
- Humectant (E452)
- Acidity regulator (E500, E501)
- Thickener (E412)
- COLOUR (E101) Also Known as vitamin B2 or Riboflavin.
Also The Seasoning Powder Contains;
- Iodized salt
- Flavour enhancer (E621, E627, E631)
- Yeast extract
- Soy powder

With that said, one has to know that the pigment(s) and chemical compounds in the foods you eat and the medications you take also have the ability to alter the colour of your urine.
Remember, these changes are fairly standard and typically don’t last for long time though.
Therefore, let’s consider this very chemical compound called COLOUR (E101) or Riboflavin, used in colouring most noodles.
Riboflavin is yellow or orange-yellow in colour and in addition to being used as a food colouring it is also used to fortify some foods. It can be found in such foods as NOODLES.
It can also be found in such foods as baby foods, breakfast cereals, sauces, processed cheese, fruit drinks and vitamin-enriched milk products as well as being widely used in vitamin supplements.
In processed foods, it is very likely to be Genetically Modified as it can be produced synthetically using genetically modified Bacillus subtilis.
Colour (E101) which is better known as vitamin B2, are also known for causing fluorescent Yellow-Green Urine like such seen after eating noodles.
Therefore, the question why is my urine always yellow after eating noodles? The answer is because of the presents of COLOUR (E101) also known as vitamin B2 or Riboflavin used in colouring noodles.
