Why so special? Love of mother nature and wisdom of time...
Fermentation is the art of time, care and blessing from mother nature. Starting with picking the best natural ingredients, Jookjangyeon Gochujang blends two types of Korean chili pepper flakes to get that awesome delicious spiciness. Natural sweetness is added from handmade rice malt syrup and sweet rice. No added sugar.
Even the salt used for Jookjangyeon products is a special sun-dried sea salt that has gone through three years of natural bittern-removal process. This purifying process removes bitterness from the natural salt.
When all ingredients are ready, it’s time for mother nature to give her blessing. All ingredients are added to artisanal earthen pot for fermentation for a minimum of six months.
Benefits of Gochujang?
There are reasons why Gochujang is Korea’s favorite hot pepper condiment. Besides its taste and use, Gochujang stimulates fat loss and speeds metabolism. Gochujang has the same health benefits as kombucha as it ferments in the same way.
