As Korean food continues to explode across the US, more chefs are demanding a high grade gochujang paste free of MSG. We import the finest available, with medium spice and sweetness levels.
A classic Korean ingredient, gochujang is a savory, spicy, and pungent fermented Korean condiment made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, sugar and salt. The fermentation process yields a dark, reddish paste with a rich, piquant flavor.
It’s most widely known for its starring role in bibimbap and tteokbokki, also in salads, stews and soups where gentle heat is desired.
Gochujang is also quite versatile in marinadesfor seafood, poultry and meat.
