WHITE KIMCHI - Vegetarian 

White Kimchi (Baek Kimchi) is a non-spicy variant to the traditional spicy kimchi. It has a mild pickled flavour and is refreshing and crunchy. Baek Kimchi is slightly salty with a fruity flavour and a tantalising zing that lingers on your pallet. The key ingredient is pear, which when blended with pine nuts, dried jujubes and chestnuts, adds a subtle luxurious flavour to the brine. The absence of chillies makes it popular amongst kids and spice-cautious people.

    Flavour Profile

    Taste: White kimchi has a mild and refreshing taste, characterized by subtle sweetness of pear. Without the presence of red pepper flakes, it offers a gentle, non-spicy experience. The focus remains on the crispness of vegetables, allowing their natural flavors to shine, while the fermentation process imparts a delicate tanginess, achieving a harmonious sweet-sour balance.

    Texture and mouthfeel: It has a crisp and refreshing texture, featuring fresh napa cabbage and radishes that maintain their natural crunchiness. The absence of intense heat allows the textures to shine, delivering a satisfying bite. The mouthfeel is invigorating, with a subtle effervescence from fermentation, leaving a clean and refreshing sensation on the palate.

    Smell: The aroma of white kimchi is delicate in contrast to its spicier counterparts. A subtle mix of garlic, ginger, and the natural sweetness of fruits creates an enticing fragrance. The fermentation process imparts a mild tanginess to the scent, offering a preview of the kimchi's balanced flavor.

    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.
