Do you know the benefits of eating Korean food? A full course traditional Korean meal consists of all types of flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and spicy. People are starting to be exposed and picking up interest in Korean food because of the K-Pop wave that is hitting the whole world today. Some might even say that Korean cuisine is their favorite!
Many people are now noting down Korean dishes as one of their favorite food. Apart from taste, a recent study shows that Korean foods will help to lower down cholesterol and glucose levels which would cause cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
As we mentioned that Korean dishes will help to lower down some diseases because when you look at it, the vegetable is one of the most visible ingredients. The vegetable is packed with macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients, that help to keep us in good health. The vegetable can be seen across all dishes, from the side dishes to the main dishes, fresh or fermented. Commonly used are those such as cabbages, bean sprouts, spinach, spring onions, garlic, and ginger.
Besides ingredients, the method of cooking is also important. Koreans mainly use grilling, stir-frying, stewing, and fermenting for their cooking. All these methods have a similarity – the foods are cooked in their own juice. These types of cooking methods are deemed as healthier because we do not need to add extra fats or oil to the cooking, which increases health issues.
As Korean food is getting more popular, its benefits are also getting known to the public. Craving for some Korean foods after reading this article? Order now through Grabfood or Foodpanda. You may order from our Cloud Kitchen if you’re within Klang Valley, here’s our hotline.
