[Kwon Young Won] Traditional Gochujang (400g)

High Gochugaru Content, Made in Gangwon Province

[Kwon Young Won] Traditional Gochujang (400g)

Today, we introduce an absolutely delicious gochujang by Master Kwon Young Won, crafted in the heart of Gangwon Province.

This Gochujang is a true culinary gem, meticulously prepared with entirely natural ingredients sourced exclusively from Korea.

Take a look at the ingredients list:


  • Gochugaru (40%)
  • Meju Powder (13%)
  • Salt (13%)
  • Milkvetch Root Powder (7%)
  • Korean Corn Jocheong Syrup (13%)
  • Brown Glutinous Rice (11%)
  • Malt Barley (3%)

What we love about this recipe is the generous amount of Gochugaru (Korean red chili flakes) that’s used - it makes up almost 40% of the entire ingredients list!

(It's the highest percentage used among any of the artisan brands we carry.)

It evokes the old-school bold taste of the countryside - much like the gochujang enjoyed by our grandparents.

Better yet, this gochujang is also mixed with another special ingredient - milkvetch root powder (황기)!

Milkroot vetch is considered to be one of the fundamental herbs in Korean Traditional Medicine, highly regarded for its numerous health benefits.

Not only does it add a deep, rich flavor, but it is also packed with nutrition!

Tasting Note: This gochujang has a very clean back taste - not as earthy as other artisan gochujang. It’s very enjoyable and dare I say, one of our absolute favorites.

This gochujang works wonderfully as a base for spicy Korean sauces, such as bibimbap sauce or spicy meat marinades.

Or, it can be used as a dip to accompany freshly cut vegetable sticks.

Offered in 400g.

Please store in refrigerator.

Tasting Note: 

The texture of this gochujang is slightly runnier than what is typically expected from 'sticky' gochujang

Leaves a very clean and refreshing after-taste, with a deep-umami spice

Great for making Korean sauces or marinades (like bibimbap sauce)

It's also perfect for enjoying as a dip with vegetable sticks such as carrots or cucumbers
