Learn about what is Udon, what makes it different from other noodle varieties, as well as how and to what extent its production is dependent on each of the 3 components of noodle making: 1.ingredients, 2.methods,
AMSTERDAM - Sept. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- What makes Udon -
ingredients? production methods? equipment?

When it comes to complex foods that do not exist in nature, and need to be prepared, there is first and foremost a question of definitions, that is what those foods are. This question can be broken down into 3 constituent elements:
  • what they are made of/from (ingredients)
  • how they are made (recipes)
  • what they are made with (equipment, utensils, etc.)
 What can and cannot be called Udon? What exactly gives grounds to call a certain type of noodles Udon?

As a manufacturer of noodle making equipment in general, and specialized Udon machines in particular we are oftentimes asked by prospective customers to explain the differences between various types of equipment, and whether it could, for example, be possible to make Udon not on "Udon machines" but on "Ramen machines" instead.

Although this generalization may not always be correct, but it can be said that the starting point is always ingredients – with Udon mainly made from wheat flour, water, salt, and – depending on its variety – vinegar. The recipe part includes concrete proportions/ratios of the ingredients and timing to make a product with desired properties (for the Sanuki variety of Udon that would be relatively thick noodles that are firm and bouncy but not too hard, and chewy and elastic but not too sticky). These properties would in their turn dictate what kind of production instruments are most appropriate to use.

To answer the question of whether you need an "Udon machine" to make Udon noodles we first need to step back, and say that – paradoxically as it may sound – in a strict sense there are no such things as "Udon machines".

What we do have are machines that are more suited for mixing, thinning and cutting dough to make noodles with properties we think Udon should have.
But if you are interested to know why special Udon machines exist, what else other than Udon they can make, and whether it is possible to make Udon on other types of noodle making equipment, please join our free online class scheduled for September 16, 2022, where will explore these topics in depth.
