In addition to offering distinct flavors in our cuisine, ingredients used provide many health benefits. KIMCHI (also spelled kimchee or gimchi) is a traditional Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings & is one of the most recognizable dishes in Korean cuisine. Kimchi contains 4x the amount of probiotic bacteria than yogurt & has lots of Vitamins A, B’s, and C and thus has lots of antioxidants that help to stave off disease and prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and even cancer. It also contains calcium for metabolic pathways for strengthening bones, iron for anemia, selenium for asthma and cardiomyopathy. Due to much of its health benefits, Kimchi was listed as one of the 5 healthiest foods in the world.
One of our main ingredients used to marinate the dishes is Gochujang. Gochujang is a red pepper paste made from chili peppers, rice, and soybeans. It is high in protein & vitamins, as well as low in fat & calories, all of which speeds the metabolism and provides cardiovascular benefits. Added protein intake can help lead to fat loss, but the sauce also provides vitamins B2 and C.
