Does draining broth from instant ramen reduce the sodium content?

Instant ramen has a dangerous amount of sodium, but it’s also very cheap and something of a comfort food. It was my favorite food growing up. My parents probably thanked store-brand God that I was so easy to feed cheaply.

I try not to look to much at nutrition facts as a matter of course, because sometimes it’s better not to know how unhealthy the stuff I’m eating is. One thing I am wondering is if my draining the broth from instant ramen helps to make it a little less of a sodium overdose.

I have always drained the broth from ramen before eating it. I like my noodles on the firm side, and draining the broth means they won’t get soggy. It also cools them quicker, so I can eat immediately without burning my tongue.

Does this method have any effect on the amount of sodium I intake with the meal? I figure, a lot of the packet gets absorbed by the boiling water, which in turn is absorbed partially by the noodles. But I’m dumping out around 3/4 cup of that liquid, so theoretically any sodium that was included in that liquid goes away, right? People drink the broth, so it’s not like it’s just discolored water.

If it does reduce the sodium, how much of a reduction would it be? Is it a significant reduction?
