WHAT IS KIMCHI?
Kimchi is a Traditional Korean Fermented Vegetable, which is supposed to be naturally fermented.
It creates natural healthy probiotics while it is fermented. Many types of vegetable can be turned into ‘Kimchi’ such as radish, cucumber and spring onion but the most common vegetable used is Chinese Leaves (Napa Cabbage).
Fermentation creates a wonderful pungent flavour that gives Kimchi its unique taste when mixed with the versatile flavours of garlic, chilli pepper and spring onions.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF KIMCHI
Has Vitamin A, B, C
Contains healthy bacteria ‘lactobacillus’, which can help digestion and gut health.
Can support a good immune system as Kimchi contains garlic and chilli peppers.
Things that are NOT in traditional naturally fermented Kimchi:
Soy Bean Paste/Miso
Gochujang – Chilli Pepper Paste
The above ingredients are NOT included in traditional Kimchi. They may disturb the natural fermentation process and change the natural taste of Kimchi.
Your health is important to us.
So we are introducing a full boost of live
probiotic Kimchi that also adds great flavour to your dishes.
HOW IT WORKS
Salted cabbage draws out excess water in the cabbage, making it crunchy and creates an environment that kills harmful bacteria. Only good bacteria ‘lactobacillus’ can thrive in these conditions! Chilli Pepper (Gochugaru) and garlic is then added to add complex and vibrant flavour.
During the natural fermentation process, good bacteria ‘lactobacillus’ creates lactic acid as their by-product, which lowers the PH, giving Kimchi its distinct tanginess.
Lactobacillus also makes carbon dioxide, which creates bubbles. This sometimes causes the Kimchi juices to overflow when opening due to pressure building up in the jar. The fizziness indicates that the fermentation is successfully taking place.
Once you get that sour, tangy taste, it is best to refrigerate as it is the sign of fully fermented Kimchi. Kimchi tastes much better when served cold! Enjoy the live bacteria in MR. KIMCHI products!
