Perhaps most of your already know this but I only recently learned that Ramen has a wax-like coating.
My wife brings our Ramen to a boil and drains it then rinses it in hot water, getting rid of most of the wax, before she boils it to "al dente" softness.
So one of backpackers' (& college students') favorite meals now has an extra step.
I'd recommend boiling/draining/rinsing Ramen at home and dehydrating it then re-packaging it to save time and fuel.
I dunno if I even want to go through all that so I may just substitute other noodles.
