Dried Fermented Soybeans (Dan Dou Chi) can be processed into soybean oil. Consuming soybean oil may be able to lower cholesterol and treat hypertension/cardiovascular diseases.
Given their sharp flavor, one of the most common ways to use fermented beans is to add them to other spices, such as garlic and chili pepper, then cook them into a thick and pungent paste. This is more commonly known as a big fan-favourite, Black Bean Sauce!
