Company: Pulmuone/ Product Name: Gardenia Seeds Half-cut Pickled Radish
No Preservative, No MSG, No Artificial Coloring, No Saccharin, No Glacial Acetic Acid
Recently, I learned that some of the artificial ingredients in pickled radishes are not good for health. Some examples of those ingredients are: food coloring, preservatives, MSG, and saccharin. Should I give up eating this delicious food for health? I stopped buying it for a while; however, whenever I was hungry for kimbap, I wished there was a healthy pickled radish. One day, I found this Gardenia Seeds pickled radish from a Korean grocery store. It did not have the unhealthy ingredients that I was afraid to eat. So, I was excited to try it. The taste is not as good as the normal pickled radish, but it is good enough to use, especially considering how much healthier it is. The more I eat it, the more I become accustomed to it and like it. If you can find it in a Korean grocery store, try it someday.
