I have had clients not know what kimchi is, or mix it up with kefir. Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish of salted, fermented vegetables. It’s been around for hundreds of years.
Kimchi can be made from a variety of vegetables, and even fruits, but the most recognized version is made with cabbage. Alongside cabbage, it often contains radishes, scallions, carrots, garlic, ginger, chili flakes, and other flavourings.
Kimchi has a sour, salty, savoury, and often fiery taste. It can also feel slightly fizzy on your tongue due to fermentation by live probiotic bacteria. Great for your gut.
