This gochujang (red chilli paste) is fermented for 1,000 days to achieve the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy. 

All Natural Locally Sourced Korean Ingredients: Red Pepper Powder, Malt Syrup, Sweet Rice, and Salt. 

Net Weight: 1.10 lbs

Serving Size: 1 tbsp

Storage Method: Refrigerate after opening.

Special Information: This is a fermented product and since it contains no preservatives it can continue to rise which can sometimes overflow (the lid is intentionally popped to allow breathing space for the fermented paste). It is still safe to eat.


Maintaining the traditional technique passed down for generations, Jookjangyeon allows each jar of gochujang (pronounced go-choo-jahng) to ferment for 1000 days before jarring. It has a concentration of savory umami flavor with some spice and can be cooked, mixed, dipped, or paired with any of your favorite dishes!

There are no additives or preservatives used in the process; only Mother Nature and time. 

천일 걸려 만드는 죽장연 고추장에는 자연과 세월 이외에는 아무 것도 넣지 않았습니다.  사용중인 고추장의 재료 레이블과 비교해 보세요.

뉴욕과 샌프란시스코 미슐랭스타 레스토랑에서 사용하는 죽장리 고추장은 햇볕 잘 드는 경상도 죽장리 골짜기에서 주민들과 함께 만듭니다.  무형문화재 25호 이무남 옹기장의 수작업을 통해 완성된 항아리에서 100% 순수 국산콩과 3년간 간수를 뺀 신안천일염, 200m 지하 천연암반수를 정제한 물로 정성들여 만든 전통 고추장을 김씨마켓이 자신있게 추천합니다.
