Korean Kimchi

3. Kimchi

Kimchi is a spicy, pickled cabbage dish that has been a staple in Korean cuisine, but it has recently been increasing in popularity in the U.S., including the West Coast. This fermented napa cabbage is often included in soups, stir fry, sandwiches, and salads, and considering the fact that it is loaded with important vitamins, kimchi is a healthy addition to any diet.

Another big reason that kimchi is becoming a health food trend is that the vegetable goes through fermentation. This process occurs when bacteria or yeast convert sugar into alcohol, and research has suggested that fermented foods are beneficial for overall health in a few important ways. One study published in “Nutrition Research” showed that participants exhibited improved carbohydrate metabolism and cholesterol levels when consuming fermented kimchi.

If you’re interested in trying the exotic and distinctive flavor of kimchi, you can find this product sold at health food stores, Asian grocery stores, and a few high-end supermarkets.
