Compared with traditional Korean kimchi which contains fish sauce, we pride ourselves in making our kimchi 100% vegan and unpasteurised.

kimči naložené v hliněné nádobě

Most Korean kimchi available on the Czech market is pasteurised, which kills the good bacteria, probiotics & vitamins. Our kimchi is alive, making it a true superfood packed with all of the health promoting goodness and nutrition that mother nature intended. Our kimchi is also considerably less salty than its more traditional counterpart. In order to achieve a balanced level of saltiness we use a high quality Japanese tamari soy sauce.

We take great care in the production of KimchiKings KimChi and guarantee the quality of our product. More about our philosophy.

Information for KimChi consumers

Recommended intake
  • We recommend serving kimchi as a side-dish to main courses.
  • 100-150g/day is an adequate amount that will ensure a sufficient intake of nutrients. More sensitive individuals can begin with lower servings and gradually increase the daily amount.
Storage & shelf life
  • Keep refrigerated at 1 - 6°C.
  • Minimum use by date is 5 weeks from the date of production.
  • We recommend that the kimchi be submerged in its brine at all times, this will ensure that there is no loss of taste and spiciness.
  • Due to the kimchi being alive and fermenting constantly, you may notice that our packaging can sometimes inflate or expand. This is a sign that the process of fermentation is doing its magic. The only way to prevent this would be to kill it with heat (pasteurising it), which we are steadfastly against.
  • Well fermented kimchi has a particular scent that is recognised and appreciated by all kimchi aficionado's.
