Traditional Kimchi Is Great Health Food

0 Shares

The super-spicy Korean food/condiment kimchi is one of the world’s most healthful foods.

Packed with vitamins A, B and C, and high in fiber, Kimchi has been a part of Korean culture for thousands of years. Its first recorded appearance came in the 7th century. In Korea, Kimchi is consumed at an annual rate of about 40 pounds per person.

The dish is traditionally made with fermented red cabbage, garlic, salt, vinegar, chili peppers and other various spices and then used to top rice, beef, noodles and stews. It can also be eaten alone. One added benefit of kimchi is the large amounts of healthy bacteria called lactobacilli. This good bacteria is found in fermented foods and can help with digestion and prevent infections.

Kimchi can be purchased at Asian food stores and some grocery stores. It can also be  homemade.
