Once opened, store the gochujang hot pepper paste in the refrigerator to maintain the taste and freshness on point. Keeping Korean red pepper paste in a freezer is a good idea for long-term preservation up to its shelf life. Besides, achieve the optimal freshness and flavor of gochujang paste by using clean utensils to spoon the gochujang as it can help prevent contamination and the growth of mold or harmful bacteria.

Korean Chili Paste Halal Overview

Korean chili paste has a variety of names: gochujang, red pepper paste, and Korean hot pepper paste. People may call it however they want, but it all refers to the same Korean staple, the fabled gochujang chili paste. But before we go in-depth, what is gochujang? Gochujang is Korean cuisine translated into English as fermented chili paste that can be used in many cooking styles involving ingredients like red chili peppers, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt, producing a unique combination of spiciness, sweetness, umami notes, and savory fermented gochujang condiment. Gochujang has a long history dating back to the Joseon Dynasty—around 1392–1910—in ancient Korea, where it initially gained popularity.

Traditionally, fermentation is an essential part of the Korean chili paste production process assisting in developing its unique flavor and aroma, as well as improving its shelf life. Meanwhile, the red pepper flakes give it its distinctive spice, while the glutinous rice adds sweetness and helps to thicken the paste. The fermentation process involves mixing red pepper powder, glutinous rice powder, and soybean powder with water and then adding a fermenting agent such as koji (Aspergillus oryzae) or meju (fermented soybean blocks). After that, the mixture is left for a few months to a year to ferment in big earthenware jars. During this period, the starches and proteins in the components are broken down by the lactic acid bacteria and yeast in the fermenting agent, creating a variety of flavors and fragrances.

As Korean chili paste has increased both within Korea and worldwide in recent years, there is a need to attune to Muslims' halal food guidelines according to the Islamic law of what is permissible. The fermentation process, in general, will produce alcohol which is prohibited in the religion. Nonetheless, while traditionally gochujang is a fermented product, it is also possible to find non-fermented versions of gochujang. The modern versions of Korean chili paste halal may use alternative methods to mimic the sweetness of traditional gochujang with ingredients such as sugar or corn syrup. It may lack fermentation's complex flavor and aroma, but it will not stray further away from the authentic Korean taste. Being a versatile ingredient that can be used in a wide variety of Korean dishes, gochujang chili paste is recommended for kimchi, bibimbap (mixed rice with vegetables), dipping sauce for chicken, and many more. Integrate the taste of Korean with the native staple, as gochujang chili paste is adaptable for various food: dipping sauce, condiment, marinade sauce, and stew flavoring.
