Nissin Foods and JKUAT develop the world’s first instant noodles with sorghum

I recently came across a news item on the Bioversity International website on how the Japanese instant noodles manufacturing company Nissin Foods and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) have developed an instant noodle product using a local crop, sorghum, as an alternative to white wheat flour.

According to the managing director of Nissin Kenya, Daisuke Okabayashi, these are the first instant noodles with sorghum in the world.
