International Fermented Food Expo
Fermented Foods Bring Health and Longevity
In Korean cuisine many foods undergo stages of preserving and partial fermenting. Some examples of such foods are kimchi, cheonggukjang (fermented soybeans), doenjang (soybean paste), gochujang (red pepper paste) and jeotgal (preserved seafoods). Since many kinds of scientific research have revealed their likely effectiveness against cancer, cholesterol, obesity, and other health problems, fermented foods are attracting greater and greater interest among people in many countries.
Bearing this situation in mind the Jeonbuk-do Local Government started the annual 멗nternational Fermented Food Expo?in Jeonju in 2003. At the festivals in 2003 and in 2004 fermented foods from Japan, France, Australia and other foreign countries were on display as well as from Korea.
Various side events are also arranged for the festival such as making gochujang, experiencing kimchi, and traditional music performances.
