GARDENA, Calif., Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Cup Noodles announces the newest addition to the company's Cup Noodles® Very Veggie™ product line: Soy Sauce Flavor. The newest flavor is the brand's first vegetarian product and offers yet another innovation to the Cup Noodles product portfolio. Building on the success of last year's launch of Very Veggie, the first-ever instant noodle cup containing one full serving of vegetables1, Soy Sauce appeals to consumers' appetite for savory foods and complements the brand's existing Chicken, Spicy Chicken and Beef flavors.
Alongside the other Very Veggie flavors, Soy Sauce features a full serving of vegetables with a mix of edamame, carrots, bok choy and green beans. Grown from consumer requests, Cup Noodles Very Veggie Soy Sauce provides a vegetarian option that helps them add more vegetables into their daily routines.
"Cup Noodles Very Veggie has seen great success since its debut last year, and introducing a flavor for our vegetarian fans is the perfect next step for Cup Noodles," said Leslie Mohr, Vice President of Marketing of Nissin Foods USA. "We're continuously listening to our growing consumer base and their desire for new flavors, and Cup Noodles Very Veggie Soy Sauce is the newest innovation for an enjoyable, quick option for consumers' on-the-go."
For more than 45 years, Nissin has continued to demonstrate its commitment to providing consumers with delicious, affordable meals and is constantly evolving its products to align with consumer preferences. In addition to Very Veggie, Cup Noodles' recipe was modified to significantly reduce sodium content and remove artificial flavors and added MSG2, while maintaining the same great taste fans expect and enjoy. Nissin already offers two vegetarian offerings from Top Ramen, including Top Ramen Soy Sauce and Top Ramen Chili.
