Cover Story Intro

2018 Superfoods,

fermented foods Fermented foods create beneficial kinds of bacteria by providing the optimal temperature, humidity and other environmental factors. With fermented foods selected as superfood of the year in 2018, the interest in fermented foods has been on the rise. In particular, there are many types of traditional Korean fermented foods, such as kimchi, doenjang (fermented soybean paste), cheonggukjang (fast-fermented bean paste) and jeotgal (salted seafood), which Koreans have eaten for good health for a long time. 7 2018 AUGUST

Cover Story Trend

Gift of nature, fermented foods Fermented foods were selected as the superfood of 2018. Fermented foods have long been known to have many associated benefits, including improved digestion and immunity and helping to relieve hangovers. It is expected that fermented foods such as kimchi, yogurts, doenjang (fermented bean paste) and pickles will be popular among health-conscious consumers for some time.

foods like kimchi, ganjang and salted shrimp. When fermented foods reach our intestines, they improve our gut health and enhance our immune system. There are proteins, amino acids and methionine in traditional fermented foods, which helps liver detox. Those foods also are high in lysine, linoleic acid and isoflavone, which many Koreans lack. These nutrients are effective in preventing skin disease and cerebral vascular disease. Large amounts of lecithin, which improves the memory, can also be found in those foods, as well as bacillus subtilis that suppresses the growth of food spoilage bacteria and the proliferation of cancer cells, and prevents high blood pressure.

Since the good old days there have been a variety of fermented foods as appetizers, entrees and desserts, inchluding doenjang (fermented soybean paste); kimchi; jangajji (pickled vegetables), jeotgal (salted seafood); cheonggukjang; sikhye and gamju (sweet rice drinks)

In a survey of 2050 dieticians conducted by Pollock Communications, a food market research firm in NY, fermented foods were selected as the superfood of 2018 because they can significantly boost your health, through promoting gut health, improving digestion, reducing inflammation and boosting immunity. Partly as a result of this finding, traditional Korean fermented foods such as kimchi, doenjang and cheonggukjang (fast-fermented bean paste) have seen a boost. Since ancient times Koreans have had a great interest in all types of fermented foods including gochujang (red pepper paste), doenjang, jangajji (pickled vegetables), jeotgal (salted seafood), cheonggukjang, sikhye and gamju (sweet rice drinks). One of the things that shows Korean ancestors valued their fermented foods is that they took good care of their crocks. They put ganjang (soy sauce) doenjang and gochujang in their crocks and treated them as home-remedies for good health.

Representative Korean fermented foods: kimchi, ganjang and doenjang (fermented soybean paste) Kimchi, doenjang and ganjang can be referred to as representative Korean fermented foods. It is presumed that the name kimchi came from the phrase “chimchae,” which means “soaking vegetables in salt water,” and through palatalization the word was changed to “dimchae” and then to the word “kimchi,” which we use today. A low-calorie food, kimchi is rich in minerals, vitamins and dietary fibers. In addition, because of the many studies that show the lactic acid bacteria created during fermentation is excellent in terms of fighting cancer and boosting gut health, kimchi has been recognized as a healthy food worldwide. There is an old Korea saying that says, “the flavor of Jang (sauces) shows the character of the family.” Sauces, including ganjang doenjang and gochujang, have long been the base of Korean food. A main ingredient of jang, meju (fermented soybean) is made with beans, barley, wheat and rice. Jang is also used to supplement vegetarian diets with beans, which are high in protein and fatty acids. Fermented foods, which can be stored for a long time without refrigeration, have been the foundation of Korean foods. Now is the time that we should take an interest in Korean fermented foods, which show the wisdom of the Korean ancestors, who took care of their health and tastes through fermentation.

Fermented foods that improve health – enhancing the immune system and fighting cancers There are many reasons why fermented foods are good for health. First, when a food is fermented, beneficial bacteria are created. Of the approximately 100 trillion germs living in the human intestines, bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria are the ones that are good for our body. These good bacteria increase in number in the process of fermentation involved in making 9

All about kimchi There are many kinds of kimchi, a representative Korean fermented food. In addition to napa cabbage kimchi, mustard leaves, radish, green onion, young radish and other ingredients can be used to make kimchi. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s find out more about kimchi, which was selected as one of the top 5 healthiest foods in the world.

In 2001, the Codex Alimentarius Commission acknowledged Korean kimchi as an international standard. Together with natto, yogurt, lentils and olives, kimchi was selected as one of the top 5 healthiest foods in the world by an American health magazine in 2006. According to the Codex Standard, the term kimchi is applied to products made with cabbage and other ingredients in seasoning (red pepper powder, garlic, ginger, green onion and radish), which have been salted before fermentation with lactic acid at a low temperature. Kimchi has many health benefits, which have been produced by combining ingredients through fermenting and aging. Ripe kimchi provides more than 80% of our daily ascorbic acid requirements, as well as the allicin in garlic that helps us maintain a good fluid balance in the body. Jeotgal (salted seafood) and other seafood ingredients used in kimchi also provide

quality amino acids. As well, the organic acids and alcohol esters generated when kimchi has aged well can stimulate the appetite, making kimchi a staple at dining tables. Low temperature is optimal for kimchi fermentation The main reason why kimchi is recognized as a health food is fermentation. When lactic acid fermentation occurs due to lactic acid bacteria, the pH level becomes low, suppressing the generation of harmful bacteria other than lactic acid, which helps boost gut health. Salt, red pepper and salted seafood have an effect on fermentation of kimchi. The osmotic effects of salt improve the preservation of the cabbage and suppress the growth of harmful microbes. In particular, bay salt, which is rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, helps the growth of microenzymes and 10

keeps cabbage crisp by combining with the pectin in cabbage. Optimally, cabbage should be salted with a 10 to 15% salt concentration. Red pepper fosters the growth of lactic acid bacteria, which is helpful for fermentation and makes kimchi taste better. Jeotgal (salted seafood), which is rich in protein, makes kimchi more nutritious and promotes its maturation. The optimal fermenting temperature of kimchi is around 5~10℃.

pepper was introduced in the Joseon Dynasty period. Koreans used to get all of their vitamins and minerals through vegetables, from the time when Korea was an agrarian society living on rice. This was how people were able to eat vegetables during winter in Korea, which has four distinct seasons. The methods of pickling also vary depending on the region. As the southern areas have warmer weather, more salt, jeotgal and seasoning are used to improve preservation; in the northern areas, less salt, jeotgal and seasoning are used because it takes more time for kimchi to mature there due to the cold weather, so kimchi in the northern areas is not salty and keeps the flavors of the main ingredients.

Kimchi varies according to region and weather Long before the Three Kingdoms of Korea existed, kimchi started in the form of pickling to preserve vegetables. The kimchi we eat today appeared after red

Regional specialties Seoul and Gyeonggi-do


There are all kinds of kimchi that are not too salty or bland in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do. Plain jeotgal (salted seafood), such as salted shrimps, salted croakers and salted yellow corvinas, is mostly used, and salted anchovies, frozen Pollack, cutlass fish and fresh shrimps, are often used.

Since it is easy to obtain fresh fish like squid from the east coast, kimchi made with these ingredients has prevailed. Examples include gajami sikhae (fermented flatfish with grains), Pollack cabbage kimchi, gill (seogeori) kkakdugi (sliced radish kimchi), squid kimchi, turnip kimchi and cod kkakdugi.

Chungcheong -do


Chungcheong-do, which is located near the west coast, uses salted croakers, salted yellow corvinas and salted shrimps a lot. Indian mustard, water dropwort, sea staghorn and fermented green pepper are also often used. The region mainly features plain kinds of kimchi such as nabak kimchi (water kimchi), bineul kimchi (radish pickles stuffed with hot seasoning), pumpkin kimchi, young radish kimchi, oyster kkakdugi (sliced radish kimchi) and red pepper leaf kimchi.

Gyeongsang-do uses a lot of garlic and red pepper in kimchi, so it tastes hot and spicy. Because of the warm weather in the region, just a little ginger is used, while larger amounts of salt, salted anchovies and fresh cutlass fish are used to keep the kimchi from going bad. Meolchijeotseokkbakji (kimchi with salted anchovies), buchujeot kimchi (chive kimchi with salted seafood), pepper kimchi, burdock kimchi and chive kimchi are Gyeongsang-do specialties.


Jeju Island

Jeolla-do’s kimchi features hot, salty and sweet tastes with heavy flavors. Significantly, instead of red pepper, they use dried pepper that is soaked and combined with salted seafood juice. Salted anchovies are used often, along with salted shrimp and salted croakers. Jeolla-do also uses more sesame seed in their kimchi than other areas. Godeulppaegi kimchi (Korean lettuce kimchi), which has a bitter taste; the mustard leaf kimchi of Haenam and the dongchimi (radish water kimchi) of Naju are quite popular.

Because the weather in Jeju is warm, it is easy to get nappa cabbages and other vegetables, even in winter. Since kimjang (kimchi-making for the winter) is not necessary, simple types of kimchi have been developed. Jeju’s kimchi doesn’t use much seasoning, and retains the unique flavors of the ingredients because fresh ingredients are available most of the time. Abalone kimchi, peodegi kimchi (sea salted cabbage kimchi), gotmul kimchi (mustard leaf eater kimchi) and seaweed fusiforme kimchi are Jeju specialties.

Korean home-cooked meals with doenjang * With “Fermented food” rising as one of the leading food trends, the interest in doenjang is growing as well, along with the distinct flavor of cheonggukjang (fast-fermented soybean paste soup). Here are some doenjang and cheonggukjang recipes that can help improve your appetite in summer.

fermentation time, the beans lose less of their nutrients. Cheonggukjang made in the conventional way must be cooked before it is eaten, because air-borne spoilage bacteria might become mixed into it. But since fresh cheonggukjang is fermented in a sanitary way with natto bacteria, it can be consumed without boiling it first. Excellent food with proven anticancer properties Doenjang and cheonggukjang are known to have cancer-fighting properties. In a chemical analysis of doenjang, the Mercy Cancer Center (USA) found that “Doenjang packs in more fiber than any vegetable, and has anticancer properties and enhances the body’s capacity for cell repair, so it can cure pancreatic cancer and hypertension, in addition to constipation. It is a magical food.” The linoleic acid contained in doenjang has cancerfighting properties, suppressing over 90% of carcinogens. 100g of doenjang has about 100 billion enzymes, which make your skin softer and improve digestion (85%). A series of studies has shown that doenjang is excellent in suppressing cancer metastasis with its anti-cancer and antioxidant effects, helping boost the immune system. Doenjang is also known to be effective in discharging radioactive substances. Cheonggukjang promotes “intestinal regulation” since it is rich in bacillus, which foster the growth of lactic acid bacteria in the colon while suppressing harmful bacteria.

Made from fermented soybeans, doenjang is one of the most popular food ingredients in Korea. Japan’s miso is kind of similar to doenjang, but there are significant differences between them in terms of the ingredients and the period of fermentation. Doenjang is made entirely of fermented beans, while in miso, yeast is added to the beans. Also, while miso is fermented for 6 months to 1 year, doenjang needs more than a year to be considered food. And in this fermentation process, fungi and bacteria are used, which make the necessary enzymes. The longer the fermentation takes, the better it tastes and the stronger the biological activity becomes. Cheonggukjang requires a shorter fermentation time. Place rice straw over cooked soybeans and keep them for 2-3 days at 40~50℃, and you will have fresh cheonggukjang. While doenjang takes several months from fermentation until it can be consumed, you can eat Cheonggukjang after 2-3 days, and because of the short

Located in Jeju Island, a rich repository of nature resources, Juyoung International Corporation makes a mixed beverage using green tangerines – in other words, tangerines that have not ripened. These tangerines used to be discarded, but the company developed a higher value-added processing business, which is now helping boost farmers’ incomes as well as the company’s competitiveness. At this fair, the company is planning to introduce its two products, “MioJeju,” a mixed beverage made with green tangerines, and “Mio Jeju Sparkling”. Juyoung International Corporation has focused on highly marketable Malaysia for 3 years. The company has even participated in halal food exhibitions, as Malaysia has a large Muslim population. Having received Halal certification(KMF) for everything from the tangerine production site to the concentrate processing process, the entire production process of finished products, and raw materials as well as subsidiary ingredients, the company is now ready to enter the Malaysian market. 豊かで美しい自然を持つ済州道に位置する「(株)チュヨン・インターナショナル

Selim Corporation is an approved cooking oil manufacturing company, whose oil is used at elementary and middle school cafeterias in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do. This means that the company is very strict when it comes to choosing materials, and maintains a meticulous manufacturing process to provide customers with healthy brown rice oil. At this fair, the company will introduce its brown rice oil to customers who want healthy oil. When people think of healthy oil, many think olive oil, but olive oil goes best with Western food. For Asian food, brown rice oil is the best fit. Better still, brown rice oil has no cholesterol and trans fat, and also is rich in gamma olio, a type of vitamin E, which is good for health. Malaysia’s main food is rice, and they eat many fried dishes, making brown rice oil an essential product in the Malaysian market. The company has already obtained the Halal certification( JAKIM) it needs to enter Malaysia. Halal certification ensures that the food ingredients are acceptable to Muslims, but also shows the company’s confidence in their clean and honest production process. 「(株)セリム(SERIM Co.,Ltd.)」はソウルと京畿道にある小中学校の給食に使われる

Malaysia’s sugar-free food market

Korean food is verified healthy food with an ample competitive advantage With a per capita GDP of 10,000 dollars, Malaysia has rather higher purchasing power than any other country in Southeast Asia. In particular, it has the biggest Muslim population in Asia with 61.3%, so it could be a strategic foothold for exports to nearby Muslim countries. Malaysia could act as a bridgehead for Korean agricultural food to expand exports. Let’s find out about two topics in the Malaysian food market, sugar-free and halal food.

Change from sweet to sugar-free occurring in food culture According to data from aT Malaysia office, eating out and a preference for sweet-tasting food are the characteristics found in Malaysian food consumption patterns. So, 76.5% of Malaysians eat out or eat takeout more than once a day. Because it is hot all year round, Malaysians also prefer sweet food, and most of their food contains an excessive amount of sugar. In accordance with press reports, it has the highest rate of obesity of any population in Asian countries due to this food consumption pattern. The press reports said that nearly half of Malaysians over 18 years old are overweight or have obesity, and over 30% of its population suffer from hypertension and diabetes. Therefore, Malaysia’s government and food industry stepped in to reduce sugar consumption. The government announced that it will change a policy to alter people’s eating habits along with spreading awareness that obesity is a disease. As interest in health is also growing among Malaysian consumers, they are now becoming more conscious of health and functions when choosing food. Accordingly, healthy food such as “sugar-free” products is the current food trend,

Malaysia has the highest rate of obesity by population in Asian countries. Currently, Malaysian government and food industry are stepping in to reduce sugar consumption.


根据aT马来西亚办事处的调查资料显示,马来西亚食品消费 的特点是偏好外食和甜食。76.5%的马来西亚人每天至少有

一顿是外食或者从外边买回来吃。此外,由于全年天气炎热, 马来西亚人喜爱甜食,大部分食品中含有过多的糖分。据当地 舆论报道,这种食品消费特点导致马来西亚人口中肥胖比率 为亚洲最高。据报道,18岁以上的马来西亚人接近半数都存 在超重或肥胖现象,由此导致的高血压、糖尿病等疾病的患 病率超过30%。


Promising prospects for Korean food as demand for healthy, sugar-free food grows According to a report on the Malaysian market by aT, healthy food has great potential to grow there. For instance, the demand for snack bars as a breakfast substitute is increasing, and imported snack bars that are highly nutritious with low sugar contents are popular. In accordance with this trend, healthy snacks that are currently popular in Korea may have competitiveness in a market targeting middleclass Malaysians. According to the analysis, there are many healthy processed food products in Korea that use natural sweetness, so healthy food products that use food ingredients with various functions such as sugar-free products should be developed and exported. Malaysia is a very important market for Korean agricultural food exports. This market has higher buying power among the countries in Southeast Asia, and exports to the country have been growing about 20% every year. Therefore, continuous efforts to develop products that serve the needs of the Malaysian market should be made. Moreover, many

府为了增强人们对“肥胖是一种疾病”的认识以及改变国民的 饮食习惯,正计划改变政策。马来西亚消费者的健康意识也 在不断提升,在选择食品时,正逐渐转变为考虑健康和功能 性,因此,备受瞩目的食品发展趋势为“无糖”等健康食品。 “无糖”等健康食品需求增加,韩国食品前景佳

根据aT对当地市场的调查,马拉西亚健康食品市场的发展可能 性大,比如说,最近在马来西亚,作为早餐替代食品,快餐店的

需求正不断增长。在中产阶层消费者人群中,低糖,营养丰富的 进口快餐人气颇高。根据这种趋势分析,最近在韩国也很流行


国加工食品中,利用天然甜味的健康食品较多,因此,建议应当 利用各种功能性食材,开发、出口无糖等健康产品。

马来西亚是韩国农产品出口非常重要的市场。在东南亚国家中, 它是极具购买力的市场,同时,韩国对马来西亚的出口正以每年 20%左右的速度增长。这表明,必须持续发掘符合马来西亚市

场的商品。同时,在马来西亚已有众多国家的加工食品企业正开 展着路演、价格促销、烹饪示范等市场营销活动。韩国加工食品 也应该通过积极的市场营销,占领马来西亚无糖食品市场。

processed food companies from various countries have already come into Malaysia promoting their products through road shows, discount sales and cooking demonstrations. Korean processed food should also implement aggressive marketing strategies to make inroads into the sugar-free food market in Malaysia. Favorable to have halal certification when exporting processed food to Malaysia One of the important standards is to obtain halal certification when exporting processed food to Malaysia. Even though it is not a requirement to get halal certification, most products with a high market share in the local market have this certification.

20 Korea Agrafood

Since more than 60% of Malaysia’s population is Muslim, a government agency (JAKIM) manages and issues halal certification. Malaysian consumers who are not even Muslim tend to think that a halal certified product is a “verified” product. This tendency is stronger when it comes to beverages and drinks. Malaysian consumers favor halal certified beverages and drinks. In terms of Korean food, as long as the products are certified by the Korea Muslim Federation (KMF), they can be sold as authorized halal products in Malaysia as well. In addition, a Halal food promotion zone will be operated at the K-Food Fair in Kuala Lumpur, which will be held for 3 days from August 29th. People will be able to see the response from Malaysian Halal market directly. It is easier and cheaper to obtain KMF certification compared to getting halal certification from JAKIM. If Korean companies enter the Malaysian market after receiving halal certification from the KMF, they can increase consumer confidence in their products and may identify the possibility of expanding exports to the halal market in Asia.

Malaysia where eating out is very common, has a big imported food market. There is a high demand for halal food since Muslims make up about over 60% of the population of Malaysia.


向马来西亚出口加工食品时,非常重要的标准之一为:是否获 得“清真认证”。向马来西亚出口时,获得清真认证虽然不是必

机构(JAKIM)直接管理并签发清真认证。马来西亚消费者即 使不是穆斯林,也具有这种倾向,即,将经清真认证的产品看 做是经“检验”的产品。

With aggressive marketing strategy, Korean food gains recognition in Malaysia Last April, products from 31 Korean companies were introduced and received good responses at Malaysia International Halal Showcase 2018 (MIHAS 2018) held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Local buyers showed keen interest, in particular in food, dietary supplement and lactobacillus companies that already have halal certification. In addition, in June, an agricultural export counseling meeting hosted by aT successfully took place in Kuala Lumpur. During the meeting, an export contract for 30,000 dollars of omija (magnolia berry or five-flavor-fruit) syrup was made, and local buyers had a chance to admire fresh Korean produce such as melons and tangerines. The consumers participating on the panel highly appreciated the taste of Korean melons. Cabbages were also very well received by the panel in the areas of freshness and taste. Like this, the local reaction to fresh Korean produce was enthusiastic. Malaysia, the largest halal food market in Asia, now focuses on healthy premium products. Verified Korean food companies can expand exports and open the halal market through this attractive market.

Foreigners tell stories about their Korean food experiences


(Noodles in cold soybean soup) Kanemitsu Hidemi from Japan and Kwak Hang from China felt more energized to beat the summer heat by eating the popular Korean summer food, kongguksu.

24 Korea Agrafood

Tasting summer foods to cool you down Kanemitsu from Japan and Kwak from China first met at a media organization where they work as a Japanese translator and a Chinese translator. Kanemitsu poses enthusiastically in front of a camera during a photoshoot, and that makes Kwak laugh out loud. They both like Korean food very much and are really enjoying the opportunity to eat new Korean food. Kanemitsu first came to Korea at 26 years old to study the Korean language in 1996. At the time, she heard her Japanese friends saying that “there will be more work that needs Japanese translators. There will also be more Japanese magazines to cover hallyu, so it would be better to work in Korea.” Since then, Korean TV dramas started getting attention from Japanese people. The more translation work she got, the longer she had to stay in Korea. Then she met a Korean man here and married him. After her marriage, she just settled down to live in Korea. “I enjoy most Korean food, especially meat dishes. I love to eat samgyeopsal (pork belly) and bibimbap (mixed rice). In summer, I often eat samgyetang (chicken

What is the score I am going to give kongguksu?

It takes time to enjoy, but you will like it! Kanemitsu (Japan) “It may feel strange when a Japanese person eats kongguksu for the first time because it is not sweet or salty, but savory. I think you have to eat it a couple of times before you finally know the real taste of kongguksu.”

Have you ever tried soybean with soup? Kwak (China) “Eating kongguksu reminds me of my mother’s homemade noodles. The noodles in kongguksu feel smooth when you swallow them and the thick and rich bean soup is savory. It is interesting that you eat noodles in soup made with soybeans.”

soup with ginseng). I also really like Korean noodles, especially kalguksu (noodle) with a meat broth.” Kwak had great interest in Korea, so he majored in Korean Linguistics at a college in China. He began to have an interest in Korea because of “Korean dramas.” He fell in love with Korea while watching “Everything about Eve” starring Jang Dong-gun and Chae Rim. His interest finally led him to go to Korea, and now he studies journalism and broadcasting for a master’s degree. “I‘ve been living here for 8 years since 2010. Now I feel almost awkward when in China. I can eat almost every kind of Korean food. My favorite Korean food is bulgogi (grilled beef) and naengmyeon (cold noodles).” This time, Korean food fans Kanemitsu and Kwak are going to try kongguksu (noodles in cold soybean soup),

a popular summer dish. Kanemitsu tried kongguksu once about 10 years ago, and it was first time to eat it since then. She said kongguksu tastes light, which seems unique to Japanese cuisine. Kwak mentioned that people in Jeolla-do eat kongguksu with sugar and in Gyeongsang-do with salt, and similar to that, there is a dish in his home town, Henan, that is like sundubu (soft tofu stew), and people from the northern area and southern area eat it with a sauce that is quite opposite to each other. A place where you can have kongguksu in all seasons So, they ate this summer specialty food, chilled kongguksu, at Garamguksi in Nonhyeon-dong,

Garamguksi Address: 13 Eonju-ro 135 gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul Contact: +82+02-541-8200 KO

Gangnam-gu. Different from other places that sell kongguksu only in the summer, Garamguksi offers it in all seasons. The restaurant is famous for its clean soup made with domestically grown soybeans. It even pays attention to the soybean cooking time and thickness of water to make delicious kongguksu. In particular, ground sesame seeds are used to add sweetness to kongguksu, which is their secret ingredient. “When I first tasted kongguksu 10 years ago, I thought “what is this?” It tasted like nothing special because it doesn’t have strong flavors and uses little seasoning. But Garamguksi’s kongguksu is tasty, and I think I’m getting a feel for what the deep flavor is.” Kanemitsu thinks she is finally able to understand why people like kongguksu. Kwak says since kongguksu is a really well-known healthy food, it is good to eat it in the sweltering summer. They had a good time eating together and were also taking good care of their health at the same time.

HMR Ottogi Kongguksu Ramen (cold soybean soup ramen) Ottogi Kongguksu Ramen recreates the chewy and glutinous noodles and savory soybean soup of Kongguksu. Roasted sesame and black sesame in the instant powder soup doubles the flavor of Kongguksu.

Dr. Jung's Food Soybean Soup Dr. Jung's Food soybean soup has strong savory flavor by using whole soybeans. It is made from 99.41% soybean soup. This soybean soup can be used in many dishes such as pasta dishes and doenjang jjigae (soybean paste stew).

Chae Hyang Won Corp., a blueberry production and processing company

Entering the global marketplace with processed blueberry products

Located in Hwacheon in Gangwon-do has optimum conditions for blueberry cultivation, Chae Hyang Won Corp. produces a variety of healthy processed foods such as fermented blueberry vinegar beverages and jams.


「健康によい甘いブルーベリーの加工食品で世界 市場に向かってチャレンジ」

28 Korea Agrafood

CEO Kim turns over approximatively 300 million won a year by producing processed blueberry products made with blueberries cultivated in his farm he built considering the situation in Korea.


Blueberries, selected as one of the top 10 superfoods in the world by the Times, are very popular because they are rich in an antioxidant substance called anthocyanin that has good anti-aging and eye health properties. There are many blueberry cultivation sites around the country. In particular, Hwacheon in Gangwon-do has the ideal conditions for blueberry cultivation with a large daily temperature range and optimum humidity, so blueberries from there have high sugar contents over 13 brix and high quality. The CEO of Chae Hyang Won Corp., Kim Eung-su (age 62), started to grow blueberries in 2005 when cultivation of the fruit was still not common in Korea. He released processed blueberry products such as wine, vinegar and juice and developed the market earlier than others. “Unlike other countries, Korean farmers grew blueberries on a small scale. So, I thought processed products were the key. I think that we can have enough competitiveness if home-grown, quality processed blueberry products can be popularized and exported.” CEO Kim makes approximately 300 million won a year by producing 8 tons of blueberries on a 1 hectare (about 3000 pyeong) farm. He sells 10% of his fresh blueberry production directly to consumers and the remainder is quick frozen to be used as raw ingredients for processed products.

Natural fermented blueberry vinegar beverages and jams have gained favorable responses. CEO Kim challenged himself to make high value-added fermented foods such as blueberry wine and vinegar way earlier than anyone else. In 2011, his 198㎡ (60 pyeong) winery was completely furnished, and he started to sell blueberry wine. CEO Kim said, “Usually, one bottle of wine requires 1 kg of blueberries, and by doing that, we can create added value two or three times higher than fresh fruit,” adding, “We also developed various types of spin-off merchandise from blueberry wine such as vinegar, salt and beverages. Moreover, we release new items every year, creating a synergy effect.” The most popular items of Chae Hyang Won are blueberry vinegar drinks, blueberry jam and blueberry juice. The vinegar drink contains 30% blueberry fermented vinegar and is rich in organic acid, which is good for diets and detoxification, so it is especially popular among women. CEO Kim said, “Blueberry vinegar drinks are made with natural fermented wine vinegar with over 5.3% acidity, which has been through a long aging period. You only have to mix the vinegar drink and water in a

Ways to use the processed blueberry products from Chae Hyang Won Corp. 1. Blueberry vinegar drink, good for cooking Blueberry vinegar drink can be used as a salad dressing with a wonderful, refreshing flavor. You can also use it when making pickles such as garlic pickles and ginger pickles. The drink also goes well with traditional Korean dishes such as namul muchim (seasoned vegetables) and cold cucumber soup. 2. Blueberry jam, not too sweet, but tasty You can eat this jam on bread of course, but also with plain yogurt, on salads and on canapes as an appetizer. The blueberry jam can be used as a home baking ingredient when making bread and cookies, as well as a food topping.

ratio of 1: 3-4 to drink it,” and added, “We first started exporting the products to Hong Kong and Vietnam in 2016, and now our samples are exported to China.” Usually, jam contains 30 to 40% fruit, but Chae Hyang Won makes premium jams with 90% blueberry. This leads to high manufacturing costs, but because the jam is tasty and has an excellent texture, it has won rave reviews from regular customers and jam lovers. To make blueberry jam, half of the quality blueberries are ground with a crusher and the other half are used whole, and sugar and lemon juice are added to the mixture and then the mixture is condensed slowly for 6 hours. Fructose or pectin is not added to it, so the jam is not too sweet, and since whole fruit is used in the jam, the texture is outstanding. Recently, the company launched 100% blueberry juice, a low-temperature extraction of blueberry juice. The juice is not made from concentrate, so no sugar or artificial additives are added. It is just freshly pressed from selected blueberries and pasteurized. The various types of processed blueberry products of Chae Hyang Won have begun to gain recognition at home and abroad. In addition to Hong Kong and Vietnam, Taiwan has also shown an interest in the products recently. In particular, Japanese buyers want to purchase fresh blueberries, so there is a good export opportunity. In addition, Chae Hyang Won runs blueberry cooking classes on making jam, cookies, vinegar and beverages, as well as picking blueberries. The company aims to become a success model of sixth industrialization in connection with local tourism and festivals. CEO Kim said, “We will strive to develop more new processed blueberry products and promote exports. Also, we are going to make blueberry farm tourism and try to contribute to the increase in local farm income.”

Chae Hyang Won offers blueberry cooking classes such as making jams, cookies, vinegar and beverages, as well as picking blueberries.

The taste of Korean peaches, acknowledged by the world!

The fruit’s storability has been improved Popular summer fruit, peach is a sweet, low-calorie food that is loved around the world.

世界が認めた味!保存性まで高めた「韓国産モモ」 32 Korea Agrafood

Peach is popular summer fruit in Korea. Korean peach is considered a healthy, premium fruit because it is juicy, tasty, aromatic and nutritious. Korean peaches are export to Hong Kong as well as Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia and Laos. Because they are high in sugar and have a soft texture, they are acknowledged as a premium fruit. When Korean peaches were first exported, local upper class and overseas Koreans mainly purchased them, but recently, general local consumers have been buying them as well. Korean peaches are exported by air for the purpose of shipping and storage. The most important conditions for the quality test for exported peaches are color, shape, storability and sugar content. Korean peach is credited for its excellent taste and shape. The quality of exported peaches have improved by developing a technology that treats them with carbon dioxide in airtight containers to greatly increase storability.

Varieties of Korean peaches such as Mihong and Yumi

Popular abroad because they are high in sugar and last longer! 美紅(ミホン)、ユミなど、韓国産のモモ品種 糖度が高く、長期間保存が可能で海外で人気! 韓国産モモの品種は輸入品種及び韓

There are more than 50 types of Korean peaches including imported kinds and domestically developed kinds. Among these varieties, the yellow peaches “Yanghongjang” and “Janghowonhwangdo,” and white peaches “Mongbusa” and “Baekcheonhwangdo” are exported. These kinds of peaches are very sweet with a soft texture and last long. In particular, the domestically developed types “Mihong” and “Yumi” are very popular, and exports of those kinds are increasing. Mihong is a white peach that can be harvested earlier than any other kind, like in the middle of June. Mihong has 11 brix of sugar, a mild taste and long-term storability. It is highly valued in the export market due to its excellent appearance. The specie is highly resistant against cold weather and its sweetness doesn’t drop much due to rain before harvest. The white peach Yumi can be harvested at the end of June. It weighs 280 g and has 11 brix of sugar content. Yumi peaches were exported to Singapore for the first time and received favorable responses. In addition, “Yukmi” peaches developed by a domestic farm won’t lose their sugar content even they get many rainy days. Yukmi peaches were exported to Hong Kong for the first time this year and became popular.

Sweet and sour Korean plum 甘酸っぱい味の調和が絶品「韓国産のスモモ」


Sweet and sour Korean plum can be eaten from summer to fall. It looks similar to peach but is smaller, almost the size of an egg. Its skin is red, and its flesh is orange. This crunchy fruit tastes sweet and sour at the same time. Uiseong-gun in Gyeongbuk and Gimcheon-si produce over 50% of the total output of plums nationwide. Both regions have plenty of sunshine and a large daily temperature range, along with fertile soil. Gyeongsangbuk-do selected and fostered plum as one of the top 10 items for its export strategy. Gyeongsangbuk-do plans to establish a distribution facility specifically for exports and one-on-one customized field education for exports to improve the quality of exported plums. Korean plums are currently exported to Hong Kong and Singapore. Juicy and sweet and sour Korean plums are gaining popularity in the local market focusing on sweet fruit.

Unique kind of plum cultivation

“Nadia plum” is successfully grown in Korea for the first time in Asia

New concept plum, “plumcot,” only in Korea

Nadia plum is a new type of fruit tree resulting from a cross of plum and cherry in Australia. Its skin is dark red like a cherry and its flesh is yellow like a plum. It is also called “cherry plum” in Korea. Korea succeeded in the commercialization of Nadia plums for the first time in Asia. Nadia plum farmer Kim Sang-seol said, “It has the advantages of cherries and plums together. Nadia plum has more sugar content than plum and 5 weeks longer storage. It also contains the anthocyanin in cherries and beta-carotene in plums. When Nadia plum cultivation becomes stabilized, I will be able to export it abroad.”

Plumcot resulted from crossing plums and apricots by the Rural Development Administration, a Korean government agriculture research institute. It still has the smooth taste of apricot, but less acerbity. Also, it tastes sweet like plum, but the issue that plum loses sugar content when it is harvested during the rainy season was improved. A plumcot is a little smaller than a plum and weighs about 70 g. Plumcot farmer Lee Wan-gi said, “Plumcot has a strong taste and smell. It is sweet and soft. As many types of plumcots were developed, the flesh color varies such as red, orange and yellow like mango, which attracts consumers’ interest.”

Danurim’s Gujeunggupo Wholly Black Ginseng Tea *

Korea shows the power of “Ginseng Country” Danurim’s “Wholly Black Ginseng Tea” was patented after a 7-year research period. It boasts unparalleled technology and ingredients in terms of honesty, truthfulness, and greatness.


朝鮮人参大国の矜持を見せる 40 Korea Agrafood


Danurim Inc.’s black ginseng is completely different from other black ginseng on the market. The product has the heart and love of a mother who was willing to do anything for her daughter, who suffered from atopic dermatitis.

の愛と心がこもった(株)タヌリムの黒参製品は、他の黒参とは 一線を画しています。



She started a business thinking of her daughter’s health Before she started her business in 2007, Lee Chae-ryeong, the CEO of Danurim, was a housewife raising two children. She began the business to treat her daughter’s atopic dermatitis. “I just wanted to share my own information to help people who suffer from atopic dermatitis. The heart to help others slowly became responsibility as I studied more about ginseng. The fake ginseng incident made me want to show the superiority of Korean ginseng to the world as a citizen of ‘ginseng country.’ In addition, I felt a sense of duty to produce decent ginseng products with good ingredients after the incident. I started to focus on research on black ginseng production after that.” As a result, Danurim was able to develop a revolutionary black ginseng production method and positioned itself as a representative health product firm in Korea.


家族の健康を考える母の思いから健康食品ビジネスに乗り出 したのは、深刻なアトピー皮膚炎で苦しむ娘の治療のために あらゆる手間暇をかけてきたことがきっかけでした。


有したいという思いでしたが、朝鮮人参を深く勉強することで それが責任感へと変わっていきました。それがさらに、偽紅参 事件に経験した苦難により、朝鮮人参大国の国民として世界

に韓国産の朝鮮人参の良さを発信し、良い原料で優れた朝鮮 人参製品を作るという使命感となり、黒参製造の研究開発に 打ち込むようになりました」



は名実ともに韓国を代表する健康食品企業としての基盤を整 えています。

まるごと淹れて飲む九蒸九曝黒参製造の特許技術を開発する 水参よりも紅参を、そして紅参よりも黒参を最高と称する理由


Development of “Gujeunggupo Wholly black ginseng tea production” patented technology There is a reason why red ginseng is better than regular ginseng, and black ginseng is better than red ginseng.

ジンセノサイド成分のサポニンが水参や紅参より多く含まれて いるからです。


41 2018 AUGUST

One can have black ginseng liquid extract by only adding boiling water in thermos or tumbler. Danurim’s “whole black ginseng roots infusion” is a technology that few others can match.


Black ginseng contains the most ginsenoside, which is one of many effective nutrients in ginseng. Furthermore, the starch particles of black ginseng turn from sol to gel form during the production process, so it can be digested more easily. Sterilization materials also increase during the broiling and drying process, so it can be stored for a long period, and there won’t be any change in nutrients. However, broiling and drying nine times each to make regular ginseng black is not an easy task. Broiling at the wrong temperature may cause the ginseng to burn and produce benzopyrene (a carcinogen) because hot steam can extract the nutrient extract in ginseng. Regarding this matter, Lee said, “Danurim’s exclusive black ginseng production method resolves the problem and secures quality at the same time. Our method, which can extract black ginseng extract in a short time with only boiling water, is unparalleled to other products that have to be boiled for a long time.”

「朝鮮人参大国にふさわしい製品を作るためには、多くの研究 と努力が必要です。水参から紅参に、紅参から黒参になる過程 で朝鮮人参はさまざまな変化を遂げ、より良いものをたくさん


We try our best to improve Korean people’s health “We need to put in much effort and research to be a true ‘ginseng country.’ From regular ginseng to black ginseng, ginseng goes through many changes and produces many great things. These great properties should be spread to people more and there should be more products so that everyone can share.” Lee is still doing research to analyze ginseng. She is also working on advancing into overseas markets to let people around the world know how great Korean ginseng is. Danurim is already exporting to Vietnam, Hong Kong, the United States, etc. The company also participates in many foreign exhibitions to promote Korean ginseng.

A global cooking match with pride in Korean food at stake A cooking show goes global. A team of Korean chefs and a team of Taiwan chefs analyze food of each country and make wonderful dishes in 30 minutes. The competition between the two countries is loved by viewers.

JTBC <THE TEAM CHEF(厨师对决)> 韩食自尊心的国际化料理对决 A full-scale global TV show was born. For the first time in Korea, the cooking variety show <Team Chef> from JTBC was aired in Korea and Taiwan at the same time. Top chefs from Korea and Taiwan use ingredients and recipes from each country to make fusion dishes, and 10 judges evaluate the food. Two comedians, Jeong Hyeong-don and Kim Hyeon-jun, and the top star from Taiwan, Chakrit Yamnam, are the hosts. Moreover, Nichkhun from the top Korean boy group 2PM, whose nickname is “Taiwanese prince,” appears on the show as a regular guest. It is quite a different level of global variety show with all cast members wearing an earbud in one ear and listening to real-time speech translation. Through the food, viewers learn about the cultural differences between Korea and Taiwan, which is the main entertaining element of the show. By watching Taiwanese chefs visiting the traditional Korean market Gwangjangsijang and rice town Leecheon-si and experiencing Korean food, and Korean chefs visiting the traditional Taiwanese market Chatuchak Market and popular restaurants in Taiwan to experience the food there, viewers feel like they are on a gourmet tour through the TV show. Also, people can get a glimpse of a vision for Korean food with the fusion dishes made by each team.

Fried gimmari using rice noodles

Mango hotteok (pancakes stuffed with brown sugar)

Fried gimmari (seaweed rolls stuffed with glass noodles) and the popular Korean street snack tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cakes) are usually paired together in Korea. In the show, instead of glass noodles, rice noodles were rolled up, wrapped in seaweed and then fried. Koreans usually dip fried gimmari in soy sauce or tteokbkki sauce, but on the show, the chefs made a Taiwanese dipping sauce with fish sauce.

In order to give a sweet and sour flavor to hotteok, a Korean chef team used mangos as a filling instead of the usual sugar and nuts. Chewy flour dough was filled with mangos and fried. Then the chefs poured sweetened condensed milk over the hotteok to make it taste sweeter. In particular, considering that hotteok is wrapped in thick paper by the street vendor, the chef placed thick paper on a plate together with the hotteok.












Makgeolli (raw rice wine) grape jelly

Croquette with dried yellow corvina and seonji (clotted blood from pigs)

A Taiwanese chef team, who began to warm to Korean wine, presented a Korean style desert, “makgeolli grape jelly.” They mixed sugar, grapes and gelatin with traditional Korean rice wine, makgeolli, made with quality rice, boiled the mixture and then cool it down by adding ice. The combination of sweet, bitter makgeolli and sweet, sour grapes resulted in the best desert. MC Kim Junhyeon even commented that from now on, he would eat grapes with makgeolli.

A Taiwanese chef team was inspired by the dried yellow corvina they ate with delicious cooked rice in Leecheon-si, which is a famous rice production region. They wrapped fried fish flesh in rice balls that were mixed with pig seonji and many types of herbs, and used nurungji (scorched rice) crumbs as batter and then fried it. In addition to the salty fish taste and crunchy texture, the seonji ended up tasting like sundae (Korean sausage). The croquette is called a unique Korean food.

K-Food Shop

K-Food zone entered Sutera Mall in Johor Bahru, Malaysia 3 years ago and handled yearly 540 types of Korean agricultural foods such as ramen and baked products.

Hello, Malaysia! A K-Food Zone entered Sutera Mall in Johor Bahru, Malaysia 3 years ago and handled yearly 540 types of Korean agricultural foods such as ramen and baking products. Sutera Mall is located just across from a large retail store. The area has a large floating population. After a consultation with the superstore, the K-Food Zone adjusted their list of items and kept sales high. Its main processed food items are liquid tea, vinegar, alcoholic beverages, snacks and ramen. The K-Food Zone opened in March 2016. The operating company, KMT, owns 50% M/S of income from Korean agricultural food, is in charge of supplying to the superstore, Korean restaurant and B2B, and uses the

Antenna Shop as a testbed. KMT conducted a test on flexible manufacturing through the Antenna Shop, carrying out a sales strategy to enter into a superstore after selecting strategic items and promoting a convenience store type of shop to avoid competing against a superstore. The K-Food Zone is in the third year of receiving Antenna Shop business support, and the support is supposed to stop this year. But the K-Food Zone is planning to stay open and check out an additional shop in Kuala Lumpur and is showing a positive attitude toward promoting Korean agricultural food.

Popular Items

Products that has Korean name are big hit! Popular items in Malaysia are ramen such as Buldakbokkeummyeon (spicy chicken ramen) and Shin Ramen, liquid tea such as lemon tea, and snacks like Pepero. Hongcho (red vinegar mixer) is also popular because of the local healthy food trend. In particular, the word “Daebak” is written in Korean on Malaysian ramen.


This is due to hallyu. So, if the name of the product is


written in Korean, it adds premium value to a consumer’s


purchase. But since Malaysia is a Muslim country, only


ramen with halal certification, such as Jakim, is sold. Hallyu


has a big influence in Malaysia, and that is why “Daebak”


ramen, which is a similar product to the Korean ramen

the local market, so price competitiveness is not so good


and Korean stick coffee hasn’t gained big popularity.
