Kimchi is a good source of folate which is important in pregnancy to reduce the risk of central neural tube defects, potassium that helps control the body’s balance of fluids and calcium which is important for muscle contractions as well as strong teeth and bones.

  • Our recipes do not contain garlic, onion, nor animal products. 
  • We recommend using “old” kimchi - Kimchi that has been fermented for long enough to give an extra sour taste.
