[Jirisan Chereum] Perilla Seeds Powder

For authentic-tasting Gamjatang (Korean Pork Bone Soup), you want a few heaping scoops of Perilla Seeds Powder.

In Korean, it's called Deulkkae Garu. And it's made by toasting and grinding perilla seeds into a coarse powder. It has a deep, earthy taste with a touch of minty, herbal flavor. The powder works beautifully on spicy Korean stews, Namul dishes and Temple-Style Korean cooking. Perilla Seeds Powder is very high in Omega-3 (ALA), making it a popular ingredient to experiment with in Korean homecooking.

But not all perilla powders are made the same! Jirisan Chereum - unlike large food companies - does not import cheaper perilla seeds from China or other foreign countries. Instead, they grow their own perilla plants 100% in Korea, near the base of Mt. Jirisan (pictures of owner below). The company also roasts its seeds at a low temperature to retain the seeds' full nutritional value.

Excellent Product

I could not find the Perilla seed powder in my grocery store and so I opted to order online. Unfortunately, the wait is a little long but it was well worth it. I have started learning to cook Korean dishes and hopefully I will order goods that I cannot find in my local grocery store. Excellent service. Keep it up :)

This flavor is new for me and my family. We love it so much, I’ve ordered seeds to grow plants and never run out!
(Don’t really have a green thumb tho, so will still order!)🤗
