Making Korean Ramen (라면)

Ramen (라면) is something you see a lot in Korean pop culture.

But...how do you make it!?

You can buy and make it in a cup OR you can make it in a pot, but either way is yummy

(though, personally, I'm not really a fan of ramen!)

How to make it:

1. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. 2. Add the noodles and the included soup powder to the boiling water. Cover and boil for 1 minute. 3. Open the lid and stir ramyeon with a spoon. 4. Crack the egg directly into the boiling ramyeon, and cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. 5. Remove from the heat.

Then you get to add whatever you want like spring onion (파), cheese (치즈), fish cake (오뎅) and more!

How do YOU like to prepare your ramen?

Nice! There was this awesome ramen place that I would go to in Korea where it had hard boiled eggs, spam, wonton things, and a whole bunch of other shit that was freaking GOOD!
You could do a healthier/more homemade version by using your own noodles and soup stock to cook in. Plus veggies and eggs and shruff
I used to stuff myself with it before I even knew what kpop was and now I can't stand to even smell it 😂.
I'd love to have my ramen custom made by 5 star chef Chae Hyungwon
I love ramen. I buy the non fried ramen and cook it with an egg. After its finished I add about 1/2 a table spoon of 고추장 to make it a little more spicy

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Rice Protein | Food and Beverages Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Rice Protein in the Food and Beverages Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature and lack of availability of its vaccine. As a result, the greatest medical challenge in the 21st century is yet to be faced by physicians worldwide. Though the emergence of the virus can be traced back to Asia, many European countries along with the U.S. have been struck massively by the pandemic. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. The COVID-19 has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) due to its increased spread across the globe. After the declaration of the pandemic, various countries announced the complete lockdown such as India, China, and other Asian countries to decrease its spread. According to the situation report of 27th October 2021 by WHO stated 244.3 million cases of the corona have been reported globally and 4.9 million patients are dead due to the coronavirus. On a slightly positive note, a total of 6.7 billion vaccine doses have been administered as well. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global rice protein market significantly. The persistence of COVID-19 for a longer period has affected the supply chain as it got disrupted. It became difficult to supply the raw material for rice protein to the manufacturers, which has halted the manufacturing process. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the end-users of rice protein such as the sports & energy nutrition, bakery & confectionery, beverages, and dairy alternative industry are expecting a decline in the market due to the movement in restriction, de-globalization, loss of income, restriction on import and export of products, restriction in the supply of raw materials, among others. All these factors have impacted the market supply chain negatively. The COVID-19 has led to the lockdown worldwide, impacting the rice protein market tremendously as it leads to lack of availability of raw material, labor shortage, shipping problems, highly inflated prices, and others. Although The demand for rice protein has increased drastically after the COVID-19 owning to its functional property coupled with the growing demand for alternatives to animal protein and other plant protein such as soy and whey. Moreover, consumers are more inclined towards protein-rich food products and healthy food options. Growing demand for rice protein-coupled with changing lifestyles and healthy eating habits will ultimately increase the demand for rice protein. However, inflated prices of rice protein make it hard to afford for the consumers in developing countries and middle-class consumers coupled with a lack of awareness about rice proteins, which is expected to hamper the market's growth. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 Post the pandemic, the demand for rice protein would be increasing as there won't be any more restrictions on movement, and the procurement of raw material would be easy. The manufacturers could easily provide rice protein to the end-users such as sports & energy nutrition, bakery & confectionery, beverages, dairy alternative, and other industries. In addition, consumers' eating habits and lifestyles have been changed as they opt for gluten-free products enriched with protein content coupled with a rising trend of veganism will increase the demand for the rice protein market globally. Thus, the growing demand and inclination towards a healthy lifestyle and protein-rich food consumption are projected to increase the demand for rice protein globally. IMPACT ON DEMAND AND SUPPLY CHAIN The demand and supply for rice protein had initially decreased during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic because of lockdown. Consumers were only focusing on purchasing necessary basic products and weren’t focusing on rice protein products. In addition, due to restrictions on movement, there was a halt on the manufacturing process of rice protein as COVID-19 has led to a loss of labor, lack of availability of raw material, and others. But after the lockdown was lifted, the demand for rice protein products has increased as the awareness regarding the functional properties as well as health benefits of rice protein. Consumers have become more aware of the protein-rich content of rice protein and are opting for functional food like rice protein products. Moreover, growing health concerns surrounding the consumption of meat products and several animal disease outbreaks in recent years will boost the demand for rice protein. The rising demand is enabling manufacturers to launch new products in the market even during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · In July 2021, According to William Reed Business Media Ltd, Cambridge Commodities announced the launch of plant-based clear rice protein powders in three different flavors such as cherry cola, tropical, and strawberry & kiwi · In October 2020, According to SOSLAND PUBLISHING COMPANY, Milk Specialties Global launched a product named PROriz brown rice protein in the U.S. The increase in the number of launches to fulfill the demand of end-users of rice protein even during the pandemic is expected to boost the market’s growth. However, the product's high prices are major restraining factors for the global rice protein market. IMPACT ON PRICE The demand for rice protein is increasing after the Covid-19 outbreak which has directly increased the prices of rice protein. The manufacturing process of rice protein is comparatively tricky and time-consuming as it involves the process of grinding and enzyme treatment for separating starch or carbohydrates from protein. The raw material used is also of high quality. Hence, all these factors make the total price of rice protein higher. Moreover, during the COVID-19, the supply chain has been affected, which has directly impacted consumers' demand of consumers, but after the pandemic was over, there was a sudden surge in demand for rice protein as the awareness regarding the health benefits of rice protein has increased among consumers and other manufacturing facilities such as food and beverage industry, which require rice protein as an ingredient. The rising demand for rice protein after the pandemic for various end-use has increased the prices of rice protein. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE In 2020, the market share of rice protein was significantly affected by the COVID-19. The manufacturers of the rice protein were facing a significant challenge during COVID-19 due to lack of transportation and disruption in the supply chain. As a result, the prices of rice protein increased significantly. The manufacturers should take certain strategic decisions to gain a competitive market share post-COVID-19 such as label-centric marketing strategies or production of premium quality products. To gain a significant market share, they are focusing on labels such as “plant-based protein”, “vegan”, “soy free” and others to attract more consumer base. Moreover, several manufacturers are more focused on producing premium quality products to fulfill the demand of consumers. These strategies could help the manufacturer in gaining a competitive share in the rice protein market in the forecasted period. CONCLUSION COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost all industries, including the rice protein, across the world. Also, the outbreak has affected the economy on a global level. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the lockdown worldwide, impacting the demand and supply of rice protein. But after the lift of the lockdown, the demand for rice protein has suddenly increased as the demand for protein-rich food products increased. With the growing trend of veganism and change in consumers’ lifestyles and eating habits, the demand for rice protein has increased, boosting the market's growth. Moreover, after the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers prefer functional food products that include rice protein as an ingredient coupled with the rising awareness of the health benefits of rice protein among consumers is expected to propel the growth of the market. However, with the rise in demand, the prices of rice protein are also increasing, which may hamper the market's growth as it makes it hard to afford high-priced products in developing countries.

How COVID-19 Impacted on Potato Chips in Food and Beverages Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Potato Chips in Food and Beverages Industry Countries worldwide have faced numerous consequences due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Key players in the market have acquired small companies during the pandemic as the demand for potato chips was high. For instance, · In January 2020, J.R. Simplot Company acquired Pinnacle Agriculture. This acquisition represents a significant and important milestone for the J.R. Simplot Company, and it will help the company reach new heights. However, disruption in supply chain has directly affected the production of various small potato chips companies, further decreasing the growth rate during COVID-19. STRATEGIC DECISION BY GOVERNMENT TO BOOST THE MARKET The step that the government is planning to take towards the comeback of the food industry is to make the industry less dependent on imports. Most of the manufacturers have decided to reduce their dependence on China for supplies. Many companies are trying to shift their supplies from China to other countries. This is one of the steps suggested by the government in discussion with the potato chips manufacturing companies to keep the supply chain unhindered. The new rules and mandates were introduced and implemented for the people's safety such as social distancing, utilization of masks and sanitizers, and many others. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE In 2020, the global potato chips market witnessed positive growth. However, the manufacturers of potato chips faced significant challenges during COVID-19 due to lack of transportation and disruption in the supply chain. To gain a competitive market share after COVID-19, the manufacturers have taken certain strategic decisions. · PRODUCTION OF PREMIUM QUALITY PRODUCTS: Several manufacturers are focusing on producing high-quality products with innovative features to improve the demand among the customers. The premium potato chips are chips that are made with high-quality materials. Many manufactures have currently launched many new products during the COVID-19. For instance, · In February 2021, Sietefoods.com introduced a new line of kettle-cooked potato chips. This launch will increase the customer base of the company. Thus, the following instances show that the global potato chips market in countries U.S. and many others are expected to grow drastically. Furthermore, with the impact of COVID-19, the market for e-commerce and online shopping is likely to grow and lead the market in the coming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN As potato chips ingredients are derived from vegetables such as potatoes, the fluctuation in supply of these materials directly impacted the potato chips supply. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the supply chain suffered drastically. Manufacturers of raw materials had stock, but they were not getting enough demand. Moreover, companies faced several issues with the supply of raw materials as most of the country was completely shut down. In this situation, manufacturers faced untimely availability of raw materials. Labor availability was another factor that affected the supply chain of potato chips. At several parts, the manufacturers were struggling for raw material reach, and at the same time, some were struggling to deliver the product. For a few manufacturers, the end-product was ready but could not reach their customers due to restrictions on transportation and thus losing revenue. Thus, the impact on supply is not due to one factor but was from multiple points. IMPACT ON PRICE The prices of potato varieties such as russet, yellow, red, white, fingerling, and purple or blue potatoes witnessed a decline due to outbreak of the COVID-19. The U.S. has significant demand for raw materials such as potatoes and this demand is generally fulfilled with local production. For instance, · In May 2021, Frito-Lay North America is the convenient foods division of PepsiCo, Inc., they issued a voluntary recall of select 16 1/8 oz. bags of Ruffles All DressedPotato Chips because they may contain undeclared milk ingredients, because People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product contained inside the recalled bags, this announcement was published by the FDA as a public service. · In August 2021, Ballreich Snack Food Co.

Thus, the potato chips industry witnessed an incline in the fiscal year 2020 due to the breakout of COVID-19. As the consumption of the potato chips and other type of snacks increased, major players in the food experienced an increase in revenue in fiscal year 2020-2021. In addition, there have been changes in the budgetary support from the government. Another application of potato chips is in confectionery products, convenience food product, and other industries and households. Since these industries have registered high sales during this pandemic, the demand for potato chips has also grown. CONCLUSION The potato chips is mainly used as a snack food. Owing to COVID-19 induced lockdown, the sales of potato chips increased as consumers resorted to filling their shelves with adequate food supplies. Few manufacturers faced issues with supply of raw materials. At the same time, the manufacturers struggled to maintain the supply as per the demand. Also, the gap in supply chain hampered timely availability of end-product in the potato chips market. However, the situation has recovered, and the potato chips market is likely to see normalized growth as compared to 2020 levels as panic buying has disappeared owing to recovery of COVID-19 cases.

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
삶의 질을 향상시키는 라면 레시피 9
라면 밖에 없어서 라면 먹는 게 아니야 꿀 같은 휴일. 배는 고픈데 시켜 먹긴 싫고 요리는 귀찮고 어김없이 찬장의 라면을 찾기 시작했다. 몸에 좋고 나쁘고 그런 건 중요하지 않다. 나의 휴식을 허기 따위가 방해하게 둘 수 없기 때문이다. 하나 남은 라면을 발견하고 반색하며 냄비에 물을 받는데 곰곰이 생각해보니 주말의 나의 라면의 왜 이렇게 초라해 보이는 건지. 살기 위해, 의무감에 먹는 건 사료라고 강신주 아저씨가 그랬다. (크게 동의하진 않지만) 식사를 차려 먹어야만 한다는 충동이 강하게 일었다. 물론 라면도 기분 좋은 한 끼 식사가 될 수 있다. 당신의 사료를, 식사로 만들어주는 라면 레시피를 소개한다. 마요네즈 라면 1. 평소대로 라면을 끓인다. 2. 마요네즈를 뿌린다. 고소하고 짭짤한 맛을 더 보려면 스프와 물의 양을 조금 줄이면 된다. 토마토 라면 1. 올리브오일을 두른 냄비에 토마토와 루꼴라를 조각내어 넣고 볶는다. (루꼴라는 없어도 무관) 2. 볶이면서 토마토 단내가 나기 시작하면 물을 붓고 정상적으로 끓인다. 3. 토마토에서 수분이 나오기 때문에 물을 약간 적게 넣는 것이 더 맛있다. 아주 깔끔한 라면 맛을 느낄 수 있다. 토마토가 익으면서 라면 국물이 배어 김치의 식감을 낸다. 개인적으로 가장 좋아하는 레시피. 누룽지 라면 1. 라면을 끓인다. 2. 반쯤 익었을 때 누룽지를 바닥에 깐다. 3. 다 익었을 때 꺼내서 먹으면 고소한 누룽지 라면이 된다. 라면+밥을 한방에 해결하는데 맛도 고소하고 식감도 좋다. 새우깡 라면 1. 라면을 끓인다. 2. 새우깡을 넣는다. 3. 눅눅해지면 풀고 먹는다. 상상하는 그 맛이다. 라면에서 새우깡 맛이 난다. 생굴 라면 1. 냄비 2개를 이용해서 물을 끓인다. 한 쪽 냄비에는 면만 끓이고 약간 덜 익었을 때 건져낸다. 2. 면을 찬물에 헹군다. (면이 꼬들꼬들해진다) 3. 다른 쪽 냄비에 물이 끓으면 스프와 생굴을 넣고 삶는다. 4. 면에 국물을 부어 먹는다. 귀찮게 왜 냄비 두 개 쓰냐면, 그래도 굴이니까(굴차별) 기분 내보는 건 아니고. 면을 따로 삶으면 굴의 향을 더 제대로 느낄 수 있다. 면도 꼬들꼬들해지고. 팥 라면 1. 물에 팥앙금을 넣고 끓인다. 2. 면과 스프를 넣는다. 팥은 삶기 힘드니까 완제품(팥빙수용 팥앙금이나 양갱이라든지...)을 사는 걸 추천. 악귀가 물러가는 맛이 난다. 요거트 라면 1. 끓는 물에 면을 삶고 꺼낸다. 2. 달군 프라이팬에 올리브오일을 두르고 볶는다. (다진 마늘이나 양파가 있으면 더 좋다) 3. 플레인 요거트를 넣고 볶아준다. 이건 파스타 아니냐고? 헤헤 넘어가 줘. 크림 파스타 비슷한 맛이 난다. 싱거우면 소금으로 간을 하자. (화제의) 김치 버터 라면 1. 일반 라면과 같이 끓이는데 라면이 반 정도 익었을 때 건져낸다.(국물은 버리면 안 돼) 2. 팬에 버터를 두르고 김치를 볶는다. (버터를 많이 넣으면 느끼하다) 3. 건져낸 라면을 볶은 김치에 넣고 같이 볶는다. 4. 라면 국물을 넣어가면서 간을 조절한다. 5-7스푼 정도 넣으면 된다. 상상하는 그 맛. 김치볶음 라면인데 버터가 달콤하고 고소한 맛을 더한다. 우유 치즈 라면 1. 스프를 넣고 물이 끓기 시작하면 우유를 200ml 넣는다. (싱거울 수도 있으니 스프는 다 넣어도 된다) 2. 다 익었을 때쯤 슬라이스나 모차렐라 치즈를 얹는다. 3. 전자레인지에 30초 돌리고 먹는다. 느끼한 걸 좋아하는 사람에게 추천. 크림 파스타 대용으로 먹을 수 있다. 개인적으로는 이런 레시피도 좋지만, 예쁜 그릇에 담아 먹으면 라면도 그럴싸해진다. 보여주기 위해 먹는 음식은 아니지만, 기분이란 게 있으니까 말이다. 그래도 라면 너무 많이 먹진 말고, 몸 상하니까. 대학내일 윤시현 에디터 vvan@univ.me [대학내일] 20대 라이프 가이드 매거진
