World's first noodle mash up found in China

The remains of the world's oldest noodles have been unearthed near Beijing.

The 50cm-long, yellow strands were found in a pot that had probably been buried during a catastrophic flood.

Radiocarbon dating of the material taken from the Lajia archaeological site on the Yellow River indicates the food was about 4,000 years old.

Italian historians are up in arms as the discovery settles the old argument over who created the first string-like food. It was believed Marco Polo introduced it to Italy in 1292 AD. Medieval food historian Massimo Montanari said of the discovery “It look like a Pot Noodle to me”.
