[Mcgguroom] Glutinous Rice Gochujang
Mcgguroom Glutinous Rice Gochujang is the best tasting gochujang we've ever had in Korea!
To start off, Mcgguroom is not a large food company. It's an artisanal company from Gyeonsangbukdo province. The owner (shown below) has become a grandmaster in fermenting Korean pastes the traditional way. She uses only 5 ingredients to make their incredible gochujang - no additives or preservatives either. The gochujang is 100% naturally fermented in large, Hanggari pots.
This Gochujang has become our go-to for the last few years. We use it to make spicy K-BBQ, stir-fries and marinades. It has the perfect balance of spiciness, smokiness, saltiness and a touch of sweetness. Furthermore, it adds a layer of savoriness to any spicy dish.
Mcgguroom Gochujang has a strong reputation among foodies and homecooks. If you want to taste a high-quality, artisanal gochujang, this is it!

What is Gochujang?
Gochujang is a fermented paste that's used in many spicy Korean dishes.
It's made with Korean red chili peppers (Taeyang Peppers, shown left). These peppers are picked, dried and grated into tiny flakes. Then, these flakes are mixed with various ingredients including fermented soy bean powder (meju-powder), rice flour and salt. The paste is fermented for many months to develop a deep, piquant flavor.

Alcohol isn't an explicitly stated ingredient. But since it is fermented, there will be trace amounts from the fermentation process.
Yes, completely normal. It will turn slightly darker in color as it sits in the refrigerator. But it's safe to eat!
