Kimchi is a Korean culinary tradition with a 1,500 year recorded history, developed as a means to preserve cabbage and other vegetables naturally through fermentation.
Long heralded as the “super food” of Korea, many studies and findings in recent years associate kimchi’s unique attributes to numerous health benefits. Kimchi produces non-dairy probiotics, or “healthy bacteria,” that aids in digestion and building a healthy, balanced gut flora, which results in a stronger immune system. One of kimchi’s main ingredients, raw garlic, has been proven to show cancer-fighting potential and the abundant antioxidants in kimchi are credited for slowing down aging process.
Most mass-produced kimchi products on the market are made with conventionally grown ingredients – that means pesticides, herbicides, and monoculture farming are all game. Some use preservatives to extend shelf-stability, especially those that are imported all the way from China or South Korea.
Every jar of Kimchi Kooks is handcrafted and lacto-fermented using only the freshest all-natural ingredients with no added preservatives. Raw and gluten-free, this kimchi is packed with vitamins and non-dairy probiotics that are essential for your diet. The Kooks family uses local, seasonal ingredients and small-batch, family recipes to make their kimchi in Brooklyn.
Local Roots meat is handled with care and you can taste it. There are no preservatives, nitrates or funky chemicals. It's super fresh.
