Alvin Toffler Praises "Fermented Foods" February 13 2014


Alvin Toffler, the noted futurist scholar and author of The Third Wave, has foretold that a “third taste” will conquer the world. According to Toffler, the “first taste” is unprocessed salt, the “second taste” is processed sauce, and the “third taste” will be the fermented taste. Popular Korean dishes such as Kimchi, soybean paste, soy sauce, Korean chili paste, salted seafood and traditional rice liquors are forerunners of fermented foods. With these dishes, Korea is positioned to be on the front line of the movement promoting fermented foods throughout the world.
