Five Korean foods most in danger of extinction

This is the first time that Korean foods are listed in the Ark of Taste, an international slow-food catalogue showing foods that are in danger of extinction.  The new foods include seasoned beans, dwarf wheat, wild fowl, Hanson Lily and beef from cows raised on medicinal herbs.   The listing is part of an attempt to highlight the risk of extinction of these foods and encourage people to protect them.

The current 1,211 heritage foods that are listed in the Ark of taste are selected only if they have distinctive flavours, have connection to a specific area and identity of local traditions and are produced in limited quantities.
