North Korea may have found a way to get around relying on foreign food aid or producing enough food to feed its hungry population. Scientists in the communist country have developed a super noodle that leaves eaters feeling full for a longer time.
Thanks to flooding, six million North Koreans are in urgent need for food aid. The noodle, made of soybeans and corn, has twice as much protein and five times as much fat as a typical noodle. According to a Kim Jong Il-friendly newspaper, the noodle doesn't make people feel the sense of hunger that generally comes soon after eating noodles.
North Korea's leaders do not suffer from a lack of imagination. In March, Kim Jong Il announced plans to make extra cash by turning North Korea's embassy in Berlin into a hostel. Perhaps the noodle can save lives in North Korea, and become the latest diet fad in America. Do you have hope in this noodle, or do you think it's government big-fat propaganda?
