Sugar, fruit or starches like rice flour aren’t necessary for the fermentation process.

The only thing that is needed is; salt (to assure safe fermentation), the right temperature (outside of fridge is fast fermentation, inside of fridge is slow fermentation) and of course the base ingredient which in this case is chinese cabbage.

For example; another famous fermented cabbage is sauerkraut, and usually only contains salt and cabbage.
