  • Locally Sourced

    We source most of our vegetables from local farms. That means just a day or two between harvest and fermentation. This preserves phytonutrients and creates a more nutritious product.

  • Salt Water Brine

    We use mineral-rich, pure and unrefined Mediterranean sea salt. It’s non-iodized and contains no caking agents or added preservatives.

  • Zero Vinegar or Sugar

    Pickles containing vinegar or sugar are not lactic acid fermented and therefore are not a probiotic, gut-healthy pickle. Period.

    Raw & Unpasteurized

    Some call it ‘wild fermentation’ because it creates an abundant growth of natural, live probiotics. Pasteurization would kill these live cultures, so we don’t do it.

How to Eat Fermented Foods

It's a lifestyle, not a fad or a phase.

Consistently eating probiotic foods over the course of your life is the key to optimal results. A serving size, 3 times a day is about right.

Mix it up.

Consume an abundant variety of ferments. Each one has a unique microbial profile and your gut thrives on this biodiversity.

Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Snacks.

Because 70% of your energy is spent on digestion, when you eat ferments with meals, their enzymes aid this process. The result is more energy for you.

FAQs

What is kimchi?

Kimchi is the general term for ferments made in the Korean tradition. The most traditional Korean recipe isa base of napa cabbage, with green onions, baby bok choy, ginger and use of red hot pepper flakes called Gochugaru spice. In traditional kimchi recipes, there is typically a fish sauce or fish oil element added in. Olive My Pickle’s Classic Kimchi is very close to traditional kimchi, and none of our kimchi recipes have any fish element, it's 100% vegan.

Do you bury your kimchi underground?

Burying kimchi (or any ferment) underground was a method used by  ancestors to attain a temperature cool enough to kick off the fermentation process. Optimal temperature for fermentation to commence is around 68-70 degrees F. At OMP we have electricity and temperature controlled fermentation rooms, so burying our ferments is not necessary. 

How spicy is Olive My Pickle’s kimchi?

Some Korean kimchis will be very spicy! Our kimchi here at Olive My Pickle is a medium heat level, not too hot.  We describe them as ‘pleasantly warm.’

How should I eat kimchi?

Kimchi, like kraut, is quite versatile. Kimchi pairs very well with eggs. You can add to your avocado toast for a kick. Because it's spicy, add kimchi to blander dishes like pasta and chicken. You can stuff an avocado with kimchi, put it in your salad and garnish your dinner plate with a tablespoon of kimchi for a flavor boost. 

Which types of probiotic bacteria are in kimchi?

Fermented kimchi contains 14 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of lactic acid bacteria per serving. A serving is one eighth of a cup, or about 1 tablespoon. The most abundant types of probiotic bacteria found in fermented pickles are Lactobacillus Plantarum, Lactobacillus Brevis, Pediococcus Aacidilactici, Pediococcus Cerevisiae and Leuconostoc Mesenteroids.

What are the health benefits of fermented kimchi?

Real, salt-water brine fermented kimchi contain naturally occurring probiotics that are optimal for gut health. Napa cabbage boasts vitamins A and C, at least 10 different minerals, and over 34 amino acids. 

Not to brag, but people really love us.

    Needs some spice!

    Such a great flavor and I personally enjoy a good kimchi without fish sauce (if you like extra fish-funky kimchi you’ll miss that here) — but I was really missing some spice! Luckily I have some gochugaru in the fridge and that was the perfect addition to tweak the spice to my liking.

    Mmm kimchi

    Not too spicy. Just the right kick, but also refreshing. Great addition to any dish. Went great with a ginger garlic salmon dinner. And enjoyed as a snack with some spicy & some caraway krauts.

    The last item in my order I expected to review

    I am a huge pickle lover, so I knew that I’d love the pickles and brine. What I did not expect is to love the kimchi that I purchased for my boyfriend. Kimchi is fine, I don’t really do cartwheels over it either way. But the fermented kimchi is amazing! So delicious and spicy! (I’m a spice wuss, so if you like spicy things, this will probably be a mild heat for you.) definitely going to reorder this one. I love everything else I have tried so far but this was a surprise standout!
