KIMCHI 

This scrumptious Korean dish is made by fermenting napa cabbage and a wide selection of flavourful seasonings. It is packed with antioxidants and vitamins. The unique Lacto fermentation process enhances the flavours and makes it abundant in probiotics. Our Kimchi is traditionally fermented and has a spicy and sour taste profile. It is the ultimate condiment and spruces up your meal with a spicy and tangy twist.

    Flavour Profile

    Taste: Kimchi's key flavors are tangy, spicy, and savory (umami). As it ferments, its standout taste is usually tanginess, thanks to lactic acid from the fermentation process, giving it that zesty and bold kick. 

    Texture and mouthfeel: Traditional kimchi made with Chinese cabbage tastes equally soft and crunchy. Kimchi becomes more compact and softer as fermentation progresses.

    Smell: Kimchi's aroma matches its intense taste with a peculiar, pungent smell. As the vegetables ferment, they create a distinct fragrance that is both sharp and robust. The pungency is unmistakable, a testament to the intricate fermentation process that imparts a rich, savory character to this Korean delicacy.

The leftover brine tastes outstanding when mixed with mayo to make a fun dip or can be drizzled over salads.

    FAQs

    1. Why does kimchi overflow when opened?


    It is absolutely natural for some kimchi jars to bubble or pop on opening. The natural fermentation process produces gases which creates pressure on the jar resulting in the overflow. It is highly advisable to always open all fermented products over the sink.


    2. How much kimchi should be consumed?


    You can start off with small amounts, about a forkful everyday and then gradually increase your intake.


    3. How do you eat kimchi?


    Kimchi is the ultimate condiment for any meal and works well with rice, ramen or consumed as it is. Its spicy and tangy flavor makes it an excellent complement to savory foods.


    4. Is kimchi good for children?


    In moderation, kimchi is a great fermented food for children. As it is full of probiotics, their gut will simply love it. It will improve their digestion and strengthen their immune system.


    5. What kind of chilli is used in kimchi?


    The distinctive flavour of kimchi comes from “Gochugaru”- Korean chilli pepper. Gochugaru has a vibrant red color and is a bit spicy, sweet, and slightly smoky.


    6. Why is sugar added to kimchi?


    Sugar is added as fuel for the yeast to start fermenting the cabbage. All this sugar is eaten up by the yeast so at the end of fermentation the sugar reduces to undetectable levels making your kimchi sugar-free.


    7. Why does kimchi taste vinegary even though vinegar is not added?


    Kimchi is a Lacto-fermented food in which the bacterium Lactobacillus breaks down sugar to lactic acid giving kimchi its peculiar sour taste which is similar to vinegar.


    8. How do you know if kimchi has gone bad?


    When refrigerated kimchi will not spoil for months, but a slight change in taste and texture will be observed over time. If not stored properly, foul odor or signs of mold will tell that kimchi has gone bad.
