Survey participants needed for kimchi study

Do you make kimchi at home, or are you interested in learning how to make it? 

Researchers at the University of Maine are seeking Maine residents who are at least 18 years old and want to ferment their own kimchi. Kimchi-makers and those interested in learning more about this traditional cabbage dish will be asked to answer questions and watch a short video about safe fermentation practices.

The study’s principal investigator is Jacob Rich, a graduate student in food science and human nutrition, who is working under the direction of Mary Ellen Camire, a professor in the UMaine School of Food and Agriculture.

The 25-minute research survey is available online
