嘉禾食品廠生產的蝦籽麵、全蛋麵及菠菜麵， 就是屬於乾麵類別。由打麵粉、切條、成型、 蒸熟、再透過長達八小時以上的乾燥，麵線内水分含量幾乎消失。正是因為如此，乾麵是可於常溫保存的麵製品，只要保存在陰涼乾燥處，其保質期長達一年。
由於乾麵麵條內幾乎沒有水分，形成麵條的本質非常脆弱，就正如所有的炸脆食品 (例如薯片)一樣，也是非常易碎。顧客在選購時，應小心檢查包裝是否曾經被開啟，又或者有曾損毀的跡象。如有懷疑，便不建議購買， 因為我們的產品不設退換。可幸的是， 即是乾麵有少量的斷碎，也不會影響其味道。
About the Dried Noodles
Various kinds of noodles can be divided into "raw noodles", "cooked noodles" and "dried noodles" according to the processing procedure. Raw noodles contain the highest moisture level, followed by cooked noodles, and dried noodles with the least moisture level, accounting for less than 10% of the total. The Prawn Noodles, Egg Noodles and Spinach Noodles produce by Harvest Foods are dried noodles. By beating flour, cutting into strips, shaping, steaming, and drying for more than eight hours, the moisture level in the noodles almost disappears. Because of this, dried noodles can be stored at room temperature. As long as they are stored in a cool and dry place, their shelf life is as long as one year.
Since there is almost no water in the noodles, the noodles are very fragile in nature, just like all crispy foods (such as potato chips), they are also very fragile. When purchasing, customers should carefully check whether the package has been opened or there are signs of damage. If in doubt, it is not recommended to buy, because our products cannot be returned or exchanged. Fortunately, even if the dried noodles are slightly broken, it will not affect the taste.
Recently, we change the packaging of the 1-pound dried noodles to cartons style. The purpose is to increase environmental awareness and reduce the use of plastic. This change has received a lot of customer support, but also increase the chance of fragility of the noodles. We are very grateful and appreciated for your understanding.
The dried noodles produced by Harvest Foods are made using traditional noodle making methods, hand-made with the assistance of machines. Therefore, the size and weight of each noodle may vary slightly. Gestures lead to the fact that every noodle is also an elaborate work of art.
