The name “kimchi” comes from the Korean word "chimchae" which means vegetables soak in brine. Kimchi is a fermented food that is naturally rich in probiotics.
Probiotics are live Bacteria-that helps the digestive system. Some digestive disease specialists are recommending probiotic supplements for disorders that frustrate conventional medicine, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Since the mid-1990s, clinical studies suggest that probiotic therapy can help treat several gastrointestinal ills, delay the development of allergies in children, and treat and prevent vaginal and urinary infections in women.
While overall nutrition varies depending on the recipe and ingredients used, in general, kimchi is a good source of many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate, iron, and manganese.
Kimchi also has a strong odor and taste. It’s often described as having a sour, spicy, salty, and even umami — or savory — flavor. When you open a jar of kimchi, you’ll find that it has a potent, garlicky, sulfur-like smell. You may find kimchi, like many other pungent foods, to be an acquired taste. But when you learn about its many health benefits (stay tuned!), you’ll see that it’s a taste very worth acquiring.
Some argue that kimchi came about during the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592 with the introduction of red pepper. And others say that modern kimchi as we know it today is only 100 years old. But this last argument is widely disputed. Most evidence points to the fact that kimchi originated thousands of years ago.
Whatever the historical truth, there’s no debate that kimchi is a cultural staple in many Korean families and communities today. In fact, beloved kimchi recipes are passed down in families from one generation to the next.
