Nutritional values of Korean food

kimchiKorean cuisine does not seem to be among the most popular Asian cuisine in the United States. You will know when you visit nearby Korean restaurants and count how many Americans there are. However, there is a huge variety of Korean food and it is full of nutrition. Soybeans, vegetables, and fermented foods are the best examples. Kimchi is most popular among Koreans. It is one of traditional Korean pickled dishes made of vegetables and cabbage with varied seasonings. Many studies have shown that eating Kimchi actually helps our bodies fight against a variety of diseases. The Korea Food Research Institute found out that well-fermented kimchi is effective in fighting off the avian influenza virus and that it may prevent the growth of cancer. A few years ago, Kimchi was picked as one of the world’s healthiest foods by Health Magazine of the United States. Now the recent study shows that if you’ve been eating Kimchi for a long period of time, you have a better chance of surviving from swine flu. So why don’t we all try some kimchi at a local restaurant? Almost every Korean restaurant around the world serves you Kimchi for free and you can have them refilled as much as you want. If it’s too spicy for you, get some more free water too and show off your skill with chopsticks.
