Compare Processed and Unprocessed Noodles in This Icky Video

It'll put you off ramen for a long time

This is gross.

Ever wonder what the difference is between processed ramen and fresh noodles? Well, this video from TED fellow Stefani Bardin shows you what everything looks like after you eat it — and the results are not pretty.

Using a "smartpill" outfitted with a camera, she films the process of digestion with Top Ramen noodles and homemade noodles. The video below shows how blue Gatorade turns everything slightly green and how Top Ramen noodles take much longer to disintegrate. "Top Ramen is made to survive Armageddon," Bardin narrates.

Watch below if you never want to eat ramen again.
