Episode 52: How Eating Kimchi Increases the Diversity of Your Gut Microbes {Minnie Luong, Founder Chi Kitchen Foods‪)‬ Bowl of Life

    • Society & Culture

In this episode Sarah talks with Minnie Luong all about Kimchi! Minnie is the founder of Chi Kitchen Foods where they make traditional style fermented kimchi products and in the episode she explains what kimchi is and why it is beneficial for our gut health. Kimchi is full of ‘good bacteria’ and when we consume the probiotics found in fermented food it can help us maintain a healthy digestion ecosystem within our body. In fact just last summer, Stanford researchers found that a 10-week diet high in fermented foods can boost your microbiome diversity and can improve your immune response! 

Minnie also tells us a little of the history of kimchi and her story on how and why she started her business. She also gives us some great tips on how to incorporate more kimchi into our diet. If you are wondering how to improve your gut health through whole foods, eating kimchi is a great place to start. Chi Kitchen foods even has a plant based kimchi that contains no animal products which according to Brown University eating Kimchi without fish products has the same type of bacteria as more traditionally made kimchi- totally sounds like a win for me!
