Delicious, Everyday 365 Doenjang!
[The Haedam] Sanghwang Mushroom Doenjang (1kg/2kg)
Every Korean household has a preference for their Doenjang.
Some prefer a strong, fermented taste while others opt for a lighter flavor or appreciate it chunky with whole beans. Some prefer a lighter color.
This particular doenjang has a very mild pungency and reminds us of a Korean version of Japanese miso.
We love that this doenjang has a light pungency and saltiness, with a deep flavor that makes it suitable for everyday consumption.
It's not overly salty or pungent, which is why we keep coming back to it.
This doenjang is a great choice for anyone who wants a mild, versatile flavor that they can enjoy 365 days of the year.
For those who prefer a stronger taste, you can add a scoop of other artisan-made, stronger doenjang to this lighter base.
Additionally, because it is light, it makes an excellent base for Ssamjang (as a veggie dip).
As the title suggests, this doenjang includes Sanghwang Mushroom (상황버섯), which is a superfood in Korea.
Sanghwang Mushroom is known for its strong anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous effects and is often used in traditional Korean medicine.
Despite the inclusion of Sanghwang Mushroom, this doenjang doesn't have a strong mushroom taste.
Rather, the mushroom is added mainly for its rich nutrition and health benefits, making little difference in taste.
This doenjang is made in Sunchang, Korea, using traditional fermentation techniques and is packed in large containers (1kg / 2kg) to ensure even fermentation.
Remember to store it in the refrigerator after opening.
If you're new to Korean food or looking for an everyday doenjang that isn't too pungent, we highly recommend this one!

Sunchang is a famous province for producing high-quality Doenjang!
Sunchang, a county located in Jeollabuk-do province in South Korea, is known for producing high-quality traditional fermented soybean paste.
The region has mild temperature and high humidity - making it favorable for the fermentation process.
Sunchang has a well-known reputation for having good-quality water. Clean water is essential for making doenjang, and the water in Sunchang is said to be particularly suitable for this purpose.
Sunchang also has a long history of making doenjang. The local people have inherited the knowledge and techniques for making high-quality doenjang over many generations.
In 1999, Sunchang's doenjang was designated as a geographical indication (GI) product by the Korean government, which means that only doenjang made in Sunchang using traditional methods and local ingredients can be labeled and sold as "Sunchang Doenjang."
