I've been eating instant ramen my whole life. It's fast, convenient and tastes amazing. Over the years my health goals started to change but instant ramen stayed the same. I decided to reinvent the 60-year-old classic so it can be enjoyed without compromising your health goals.
Let's get rid of those empty carbs and replace them with Energizing Protein and Gut Friendly Fiber! Take out those artificial additives and replace them with Natural and Flavorful Ingredients. I feel like a rebel going against the traditional cup noodle, so I decided to name this new product Rebel Ramen.
What's in our bowls?
Our goal was to bring you the best ramen ever, which is why all of our ingredients are natural and recognizable and you can count them with your fingers.
It's the taste and convenience that people love about instant ramen. Our goal was to keep those awesome characteristics while improving nutrition so you can feel great after eating a bowl.
With a whopping 38g of protein per bowl, 72% less net carbs than traditional ramen, and natural ingredients, a bowl of Rebel Ramen can help fuel your day at any time.
Same Great Taste - Chef designed and approved! Our noods rival the best of classic instant ramen. Just add boiling water or microwave for three minutes and you have a protein packed meal anywhere.
Low Carb - Following the slow carb or Ketogenic diet? We’ve got you covered! Our ramen is packed with so much fiber it makes our net carbs are extremely low. Bye bye insulin sensitivity, and hello summer abs!
Vegan - Keeping the ingredients plant- based was a big focus in order to reduce our environmental and ethical footprint. We managed to find an amazing mushroom extract that creates an explosion of umami! You'll never go back to old school ramen again.
A Healthier Ramen with the Macros of a Protein Shake!
If you're like me, you love a good workout. Two issues we understand about having a consistent workout schedule are not eating enough to recharge and not having enough time to cook. We decided to tackle both of these issues by not only making a healthier ramen but also including enough protein to help you recover from the toughest workouts.
I started Biolent 5 years ago with a goal of creating an instant meal replacement with high quality natural ingredients for people on the go. After building this business from the ground up, I launched a second company, Vital House, as a premium solution to the same problem.
Clearly, I think about food too much!
The idea for a healthier ramen came up when I was joking around with my friends. My first thought was "that can't be done"—but the more I considered it, the more I wanted to try.
Our noodles were the hardest to develop. We needed a way to cook our black bean noodles within a few minutes so they can be enjoyed as a quick snack. I reached out to several manufacturers, and after months of tests and trial runs, we found an amazing company to partner with.
The next step was the stock. Wallace and Nicholo are an amazing chef duo that developed the deep flavors of our Spicy Savory and Miso flavors. Their incredible recipe keeps the ingredient list short while packing in the bold flavors.
Fast forward a few months and we're ready to start our first production run. We're utilizing the same team that brings you Biolent and Vital House so we don't foresee manufacturing at scale to be an issue.
April 2018 - Idea started. Reached out to a few manufacturers to see if our idea was possible.
July 2018 - Final test on noodles finished. Complete success! Began working with Wallace and Nicholo to develop the flavors. Spicy Savory and Miso were born! Found suppliers and started making plans to launch the business.
December 2018 - First round of samples are completed! Started sending them to friends and family and they offered great feedback. Recipes were tweaked and ramen becomes addictive.
February 2019 - Kickstarter Launches!!!!
March 2019 - Funded successfully and inventory is ordered.
May 2019 - Manufacturing is in full swing and the first line of finished bowls are completed.
June 2019 - Pre-orders are sent out and E-Commerce site launched. World domination to occur soon...
It's people like you who are hungry for healthy change that will help launch our first production run! Thank you for the support and please reach out to me if you have any questions.
Risks and challenges
As with any new business there are known and unknown issues that we will face. Given our experience running ecommerce businesses in the past 5 years I'm hoping to minimize these.
The biggest issue I see is packaging which has not been tested at scale yet. We'll be ordering these asap once funded and running thorough tests to ensure a seamless process. If anything does come up, I have several backup plans that can be initiated and I'll let our backers know immediately.
We're using the same team and similar equipment to what we use for Biolent and Vital House. All of our staff are professionally trained to bring you the best products possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
