Kimchi juice – level 2

02-12-2021 15:00

A South Korean businesswoman Park Yun-Kyung came up with a new detox drink, kimchi juice.

Kimchi is a Korean dish which has fermented cabbage or other vegetables, sometimes fish and chili peppers. Park travelled a lot, and on her trips to Europe and America, she missed kimchi a lot. It was not easy to take it with he, because it smelled a lot. Park thought of other ways to eat kimchi, and then she got an idea to make a kimchi juice, which she started to sell internationally.

Park said that Korean kimchi became very popular during the pandemic. Scientists said that it was very healthy, and many people started to eat it more. Park hoped that her drink would become popular, too.

Difficult words: detox (a healthy food or drink which takes bad substances from a person’s body), ferment (to go through a chemical process during which some living things change sugar into alcohol), internationally (in more countries).
