[Jook Jang Yeon] Premium Traditional Doenjang

Jook Jang Yeon is a famous artisan brand for traditional doenjang and gochujang.

Their products are sold at department stores in Korea, as premium-grade pastes.

Today, we offer Jook Jang Yeon’s Premium Traditional Doenjang Paste.

This Doenjang is made the traditional way - using only two natural ingredients.

Soybean (96%) and Sea Salt (4%) - that’s it!

Unlike store-bought brands, there are no added preservatives, MSG, sugar, etc.

With high-quality ingredients and slow-fermentation, doenjang doesn’t need anything added to produce deep, savory flavor.

Where are the ingredients sourced from?

The soybeans are grown locally here in Korea (near Pohang).

The sea salt is harvested off the eastern coastline of Korea.

Even the salt is dry-aged for 3 years before use - this aging process removes the slight bitterness in the salt crystals and deepens its taste.

How’s it made?

The Korean soybeans are thoroughly washed, then boiled and mashed into meju bricks. The bricks are left to dry under rice straw for an extended period - so the fermentation process can begin.

Afterwards, the bricks are transferred to large earthenware pots, where they will sit outdoors and slowly age for up to 1000 days.

The result is a deeply-savory & traditional tasting doenjang.

If you never tried artisan-made doenjang, look no further!
