The woman behind instant noodle giant Indomie's iconic flavour has passed away at the age of 59.

Tributes poured out for Nunuk Nuraini, who worked as a flavour development manager at the cult favourite Indonesian brand for nearly 30 years.

Many thanked her for her "legacy", one calling her a "non-cape wearing hero".

Indomie has become almost synonymous with instant noodles in Indonesia, where many have grown up eating the popular brand.

But it has in recent years also become a global hit, finding popularity not just across South East Asia but also Australia and Nigeria.

However, even though the brand now offers dozens of flavours, its "mi goreng" or fried noodle flavour, has consistently remained its most popular.

One social media user called her the "Mother of Indomie", adding that she created the "most beautiful work".

Others posted pictures of their own Indomie creations online. This caption in Indonesian reads: "My mainstay menu, fried egg, meatball and Indomie. Thank you Nunuk, you are a hero in our hearts."

According to local news outlets quoting Indofood - the company which owns the noodle brand - Nuraini passed away on Wednesday afternoon.

The reason behind her death was not clear, though a spokesman said she had "returned peacefully to Allah".

Now this is the real slay queen. She helped create a global brand that has now outlived her and will continue to be so for years to come. Many people don't know her but now they will always remember the woman and her legacy each time they see a packet of Indomie noodles.

All those females doing silhouette challenge and other allied idiocies on the internet should learn from people like her. Be remembered for something good.

I remembered when the company first started at SANGO-OTA headquarter, they share their flyers begging people to come and work in their company nobody take them serious until 2003 when everything about the company started booming we went there begging them for work they told us no vacancy for now, one of us said OGA even if it's security work, then the security man provoke started speaking dialect, "Mape Olopa funyi eyin omo ale ole jatijati" I don't know why the security man provoked to have used such a vulgar language on us.

Anyway she's a hero to our ladies that doesn't know how to cook, she really cover their mess.
