Data on protein and calories in all cup noodles available in the UK

Photo of author

To find the highest protein and lowest calorie cup noodles in the UK, I searched the websites of all of the most popular supermarkets in the UK that make their entire range accessible online. I also searched Amazon for any cup noodles by independent companies that are not stocked in supermarkets yet. I added the protein and calorie content of all available cup noodles in the table below.

Types of cup noodles I included

  • Any kind of instant cup noodles that are prepared by adding hot water directly to the packaging they come in.

I didn’t include; microwave cup noodles, fresh cup noodles, alternative carb cups (rice, pasta, etc.)

The table calculates the following metrics:

  • Protein per serving* “Prot. (Serv.)”
  • Protein per 100g “Prot. (100g)”**
  • Protein per 100kcal “Prot. (100kcal)”
  • Calories per serving* “kcal (Serv.)”
  • Calories per 100g “kcal (100g)”**
  • Calories per 10g protein “kcal (10g Prot.)”

*Serving size is one cup
**We used prepared weight (noodles+powder+water) for this reasearch. However, some imported products do not provide their prepared weight or how many ml of water needs to be added, so we could not calculate the protein per 100g or calories per 100g of the prepared weight. Instead of guessing how much water to add, we marked these products with “[Dry Weight Macros]” in the table and used the dry weight values. These products rank artificially high for protein and calories per 100g. So please also check protein and calories per serving and per 100kcal to get a more accurate idea of how these compare to the rest of the products.

Find your macro match!

You can sort the table by the metric you care about most in ascending (lowest first) or descending (highest first) order by clicking the column headings.

If you want to quickly see the top picks for each metric, along with my thoughts and suggestions, check out my analysis of the highest protein and lowest calorie cup noodles in the UK.
