Noodles for all tastes
Noodles are the most important ingredient in oriental cuisine, where they have been used for over 4,000 years. Mama noodles are suitable for almost any type of food: soups, woks, salads, baking and they can be served together with meat, chicken, fish, shellfish and vegetables.
Noodles are tasty in both hot and cold dishes and they are ready in just a few minutes.
The type of noodles you should use is influenced, among other things, by the type of meal you wish to cook, taste preferences and allergies.
- Wheat noodles are the largest Mama product category. In terms of their taste and texture, they can be used in any type of Asian food.
- Whole grain noodles are made from whole wheat, so they are the perfect choice for those who prefer more fibre in their meals.
- Egg noodles are made from wheat flour and egg, which gives the noodles a yellowish colour, firm texture and soft taste. Egg noodles are suitable for all types of Asian dishes, particularly wok dishes.
- The main raw ingredient in rice noodles and rice vermicelli is rice. Rice noodles and vermicelli are suitable for people with celiac disease, as rice is naturally gluten-free. Compared to regular rice noodles, rice vermicelli is thinner and more string-like.

First noodle brand in Finland
Mama noodles first arrived in Finland in 1994. At that time, there were no other noodle brands in Finnish shops nor a word for noodles in the Finnish language. People knew very little about noodles. Nowadays, noodles are a common food in Finland and a word that everyone recognises. Mama noodles have continued to be a leader on the market to this day.
