Ramen Tatsu Ya is a Japanese ramen bar, and one of the most popular in the country.
But the bar’s owner says she doesn’t really know much about ramen.
“I’ve heard that they’re good for people with diabetes,” says Megumi Hirata.
She was born with Type 1 diabetes, and she’s been a regular customer at Ramen Taichi since she was about 8 years old.
“Ramen Taichan is good because it’s really healthy,” she says.
“People with diabetes, they should eat healthy.
But ramen is different.”
Hirata’s daughter and her mother both suffer from Type 2 diabetes, so she’s decided to put her family on the menu.
“It’s a way for my daughter and mother to be able to get together and have ramen together.
It’s a really good thing,” she explains.
Hirata says she wants to introduce ramen to a younger generation.
“My daughter and my mother have diabetes, but they eat healthy,” Hirata tells Marketplace.
“They want to be a part of ramen culture.
So, they want to eat ramen.”
Hiratas sister, Megumi Kaji, also has diabetes.
She’s also on board.
“We want to introduce Ramen to the younger generation,” she tells Marketplace, “so that they can eat it as well.”
In an interview with The Associated Press, Hirata said that ramen has helped her cope with the stresses of her diabetes diagnosis.
“When I had my diabetes, I was afraid to go to the bathroom,” Hiratata said.
“Now that I have diabetes and diabetes doesn’t affect me, I can do things that I can’t do before.
It really helps me.” “
Even if I’m eating ramen at dinner time, I’m still able to enjoy ramen as a treat.
It really helps me.”
A study in the journal Diabetes Care found that ramens have been shown to help people with Type 2 and Type 1 diseases, as well as people with high blood pressure and type 1 diabetes.
But some studies also found no benefit to ramen’s overall health.
Hiratase and Hirata have raised $150,000 to fund their project.
The first phase of the crowdfunding campaign is about to begin.
And they’re hoping that the ramens they’ll be serving in 2018 will help them with their own health.
“The ramen we serve today is for our own health, and we want to give back to the raman community by making ramen accessible to all people,” Hirato says.
