Global Kimchi Market
Health benefits offered by kimchi
Kimchi is a low-fat, high-fiber food product widely available through various distribution channels. Consumers worldwide have started opting for healthy food products owing to the side effects associated with processed food products that contain added flavors and other additives. Kimchi offers a wide range of health benefits. As kimchi is fermented, it contains healthy bacteria called lactobacilli, which aids in digestion. Also, the by-product of fermentation probiotics can prevent infections among consumers. Kimchi contains Vitamin A that can help to get rid of free radicals that cause cancer. Also, Vitamin A helps maintain healthy eyesight. Such benefits offered by kimchi will lead to the expansion of the global kimchi market at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period.
Growing demand for plant-based diets
Plant-based diets are gaining popularity worldwide owing to growing consumer inclination toward healthy food. Kimchi is made of plant-based ingredients such as cabbage, radish, ginger, and onion. The growing shift toward plant-based diets is encouraging some of the vendors in the market in focus to launch new variants of plant-based kimchi. Some of the factors encouraging consumer shift toward plant-based diets are the health risks associated with meat consumption and growing focus on animal welfare. Plant-based food products contain necessary nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, folate, potassium, beneficial plant compounds, and vitamins.
