What Is Kimchi?

What Is Kimchi?

Kimchi originated in Korea somewhere between the 1st century BC and the 7th century AD, and by that time, families had long used food preservation methods to ensure a constant food supply during harsh winters. Over time, cabbage and later chilli peppers were preserved and combined with other ingredients such as; radish, garlic, ginger, and fish sauce, and from there kimchi was established as a culinary staple.


Baechu (napa, or Chinese cabbage) kimchi is the type we simply know as "kimchi" but it's in fact just one of around 200 different types including; mild baek (white) kimchi, cubed radish kimchi and Nabak (red water) kimchi which is something between a vegetable soup and a punch.


The Chinese cabbage-based kimchi we're all familiar with can come in many variations with a wide selection of additional ingredients like pear, kale, and gochugaru chilli. But pungency, bite, and a healthy pop or hiss upon opening the lid or pouch are all things that good kimchi has in common.

How to Choose Kimchi in the UK — Buying Guide

Whether you've tasted kimchi already or you're a total newbie, it can be useful to have an idea of what to look for — as flavours, ingredients and health benefits of kimchi can vary a lot across products. In this guide, we will go through the important things to look for in a kimchi to ensure you find the best fermented veggie combo for your palate!

Decide on Your Preferred Ingredients for a Traditional Kimchi or Something a Little Adventurous

Decide on Your Preferred Ingredients for a Traditional Kimchi or Something a Little Adventurous

Kimchi usually contains napa cabbage, Chinese leaves or radish combined with gochugaru chilli, spring onions, ginger, garlic and sometimes bone broth or fish sauce — but lots of kimchi creators are really starting to experiment with different flavours and ingredients.


If you fancy being a little adventurous there are lots of exciting options ranging from all green kimchi made from fermented cucumber, apple, kale and jalapenos to kimchi offerings that are seasoned with turmeric and cayenne pepper.


Go for products that are made with raw, unpasteurised and natural ingredients for maximum health benefits and look out for kimchi containing thickeners, flavour enhancers or sweeteners — which may have a tempting taste but aren't as healthy as the ones made with good old Mother Nature in mind.

Consider How Much Spice You Can Handle

Consider How Much Spice You Can Handle

Kimchi can range from completely mild to extremely hot and spicy, and everything in between, so it's a good idea to consider your preferred level of spice before making a purchase. Those who like it mellow may want to choose a mild kimchi and work up from there, whereas spice lovers can go straight for the products packing the heat.


Most kimchi is somewhere in between, at a medium level of spice, unless the packaging specifies otherwise. Bear in mind that Korean-produced kimchi may also be spicier than those made in the UK, as tastes vary across the continents.

Some Kimchi Contains Meat or Fish Whereas Others Are Vegan

Some Kimchi Contains Meat or Fish Whereas Others Are Vegan

Being hailed as a "perfect" raw, vegan, and (sometimes) organic food by health bloggers and chefs these days, you might assume that you don't need to look at the label if you have specific dietary requirements. But we would encourage you to still check the ingredients list before buying, as kimchi can be made in different ways and can sometimes contain meat (bone broth), fish, or shellfish.


Many traditional Korean kimchi products contain bone broth or fish, giving an extra punchy and delicious flavour, so you may want to check the label if you are a vegan or vegetarian. Many UK-based brands seem to boast fully vegan ingredients, however, it's still worth making sure there isn't a smidge of fish sauce hiding in the ingredient list too.

Jar, Pouch or Can: Decide Which Container Type Is Right for Your Storage

Jar, Pouch or Can: Decide Which Container Type Is Right for Your Storage

The container type you choose will depend on the purpose of your kimchi, whether you want to eat it gradually, store it in your cupboard or even take it to a picnic or on a camping trip. A pot or jar is probably the best value for money if you intend to eat kimchi more than once, and a glass jar can be easily kept in the fridge and reused or recycled after you've eaten the contents.


Kimchi in a pouch is another popular option as this style of container keeps the kimchi super fresh, and some pouches can be resealed to save the rest of the pack for later. For a very affordable option that's easy to store in a cupboard for a long period of time, or to take on a camping trip or to work, canned kimchi is a great idea.


Canned kimchi serves one portion which can be really convenient but maybe not the best value if you eat lots of kimchi. However, additives like thickeners, flavour enhancers and other not-so-healthy ingredients are often added to cans of kimchi to help preserve it, which isn't as ideal as eating it fresh.
