Kimchi is a spicy condiment that packs a very healthy punch! It’s part of a high-fiber, low-fat diet that has helped Koreans keep their weight in check. Kimchi is a “reddish fermented cabbage dish made with a mix of garlic, salt, vinegar, chili peppers, and other spices that is served either alone or mixed with rice or noodles.” Kimchi is packed with vitamins A, B, and C and also contains healthy bacteria, found in fermented foods, called lactobacilli. This healthy bacteria aids digestion, helps prevent yeast infections, and could also help stop the growth of cancer.
Kimchi is a great spicy condiment that can be added to almost any meal. Pick some up in the refrigerated section of your local Asian market or grocery store.
