Immi is putting healthy instant ramen noodles on the market after receiving generous funding.
Immi instant ramen is plant-based, low carb, and low sodium. It is also high in fiber and has 22 grams of protein on average. The plant-based ramen comes in three distinct flavors: Black Garlic “Chicken,” Tom Yum “Shrimp,” and Spicy “Beef.
Co-founders Kevin Lee and Kevin Chanthasiriphan bonded over good noodles, which led to them deciding to run a business together. After they both experienced having family members develop diabetes and high blood pressure, they wanted to find a way to make their childhood favorite into a healthier option.
Chanthasiriphan said, “We immediately agreed on instant ramen. My dad still eats instant ramen each night, and it is such a massive market: 4 billion packets are sold per year, but it is also a product that has been dominated by the same three incumbents for years.”
At first, it was not easy for this two-person business to create healthy and plant-based instant ramen. It was an almost entirely new product to a market in which only a few ramen brands excel. Many people told Lee and Chanthasiriphan that a healthy instant noodle was not possible. However, they did not give up.
