Nutritional value of Kim Chi

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 27, 2012 at 10:49 PM

I eat a lot of Kim Chi for breakfast. It's store bought but all the ingredients are paleo friendly. I read a lot about the benefits of cruciferous veggies for preventing cancer but that they disappear quickly with cooking and was wondering if the same holds true for culturing. What do you think?

http://www.milkimchi.com/shop/index.php/featured/daikon-radish-kimchi.html I buy this one. I don't think it is pasteurized so still get all the same results as if I made it at the house.

That is very sweet and very candid and utterly irrelevant, but funny.

I don't know about how nutritious it is, but I can't stand the smell of the stuff. I even hate flying through Seoul just because the airport smells like kim chi.

Culturing them actually makes them more nutritious.

If it's truly fermented and raw, kimchi is loaded with good stuff. (Not sure about the details of the brand you're getting at the store. I make my own.)

Raw garlic, ginger, cabbage, green onions...holy nutrition, Batman!

(And breath...I studied Korean in the military and all our teachers [native Koreans] made sure to brush their teeth after lunch!])

Not the best smelling stuff, but definitely a nutritional powerhouse. (For vegetables, anyway!)

It's healthy. Try putting it in soups, on top of salads, or grilling it!

Culturing adds beneficial bacteria, like in yogurt and kefir. If pasteurized, the cultures are killed off, though.
