Sourdough bread is trending. As consumers seek preservative-free bread, more food retailers are adding sourdough loaves. Made with just flour, water and salt, sourdough is a clean food with a tangy taste due to the fermentation process.
Great news for kimchi producers wanting to expand to vegan products. A new study from researchers at Brown University found that vegan kimchi made with miso paste instead of fish sauce or brined shrimp produces the same final healthy bacteria as traditional kimchi. This is because of “the selective pressure of the fermentation environment” which is so powerful that a new ingredient doesn’t impact the bacterial community.
