The tale of Gochujang Text

Gochujang has been a Korean household staple for centuries, with its first use in Korea traced to the late 18th century. Traditionally fermented over years in large earthen pots outdoors, Chung Jung One has already been producing Gochujang for several decades. Chung Jung One’s new take on Gochujang launches the Korean chili sauce for the mainstream consumer, however—preserving the umami flavor that comes from the product’s fermentation with a natural balance of sea salt and sweetness provided by cane sugar.

Award-winning Chef Edward Lee—owner of 610 Magnolia and MilkWood restaurants in Louisville, KY, and author of Smoke & Pickles—served as product consultant during the creation process of Chung Jung One’s Gochujang Korean Chili Sauce. To develop the flavor profile, Lee traveled to Korea to taste the sauce varieties, working closely with the food development, marketing, and corporate teams to cook with and taste the product in a variety of foods.

The vegan, gluten-free sauce now comes ready to use in a distinctive red 7.5-oz. bottle, and its many uses include marinating meats, adding flavor to stews and soups, and it can also be used as a hot sauce condiment. It brings a full range of spicy, savory, and sweet flavors to any dish—from traditional bibimbap to chicken wings, barbecue sauce, dips, and more.

A 1-teaspoon serving of the sauce contains just 10 calories, 120 mg sodium, and no fat or gluten. Use Gochujang Korean Chili Sauce to add a distinctly Korean flavor to your everyday dishes.
