Offering unbeatable quality and great taste, it’s the most awarded kimchi range in the UK!
The Cultured Collective kimchi range is expertly crafted in the Cotswolds using the highest quality, natural ingredients in an environment powered by sustainable energy and presented in easily recyclable materials.
Living Well begins with Eating Well
A traditional mix of fresh chinese leaf cabbage, mooli radish, carrot and spring onion form the basis of Classic Kimchi. The vegetable medley is fermented for up to a week in an aromatic spice blend until the perfect balance of spicy-sour has been reached. Three further kimchis have their own individual flavour and characteristics.
Unpasteurised and with no artificial preservatives, each jar is loaded with healthy, live, good bacteria – or probiotics. Eating unpasteurised fermented foods such as kimchi is a natural way of getting probiotics into your diet.
Studies have shown that gut flora (the bacteria that live in the digestive system) have a huge impact on the health of our immune system (over 70% of which resides in the gut).
Another bit of good news; over 90% of serotonin – the so-called ‘happy hormone’– is synthesised in the gut and some recent studies have shown that probiotics may have a positive effect on conditions such as depression and anxiety.

Live, Gut-Loving Accompaniments For Every Occasion
Kimchi is traditionally eaten as a condiment or used an ingredient in cooking, however it’s equally enjoyable forked straight from the jar! Add to sandwiches, salads and wraps or spice up stir-fries, rice and noodle dishes – kimchi is not impeded by country specific cuisines!
“Gut health is a very simple practice that may help support your immune system. Eating live foods such as kimchi which is packed with good bacteria helps to create a healthy microbiome. The Cultured Collective kimchis add tang to meals AND come loaded with healthy live bacteria”

Peter Morrell Editor comments, “I love Kimchi, it can become almost addictive. I’ve recently tried the Cultured Collective’s traditional Classic Kimchi and it’s delicious. It’s spicy but not overly hot which allows the flavours of the other ingredients to be more prominent. This is ideal as a side or in a sandwich, and if you feel adventurous you can make a Kimchi pancake, there are lots of recipes in the web,”
The Cultured Collective Kimchi range is available from fine food delis, Ocado, Planet Organic and Whole Foods Market.
