Gochugaru is a common ingredient in many Korean dishes, such as kimchi. Its taste is a pleasant combination of sweet and spicy. It is softly strong, with a zest between that of paprika and jalapeño.

Gochugaru is a dried, crushed red chili, as its name says. In Korean, "gochu" literally means "chili pepper", and "garu" means "powder". It is one of the most popular ingredients in Korean cooking, and is widely used to add spice and flavour.

Some fermented dishes contain large amounts of gochugaru, including kimchi, chigae kimchi (fermented cabbage soup) and kkakdugi (daikon kimchi).

These Korean red pepper flakes also add a great touch of spice to other dishes, such as soups, stews, marinades, pasta and more!

Kimchi and more

The perfect chilli flake for making excellent varieties of kimchi! My partner doesn't understand my kimchi obsession, but has developed an obsession with these chilli flakes. They make great additions to oven roasted veggies, soups, stews, and even hummus. Excellent value.

Super value for money

Super aromatic pepper and delicious in kimchi! No need to put a lot in fermentations for the taste and spiciness to diffuse. I would put in all my whey if my family was more resistant to spicy!

Good chilli

Very nice product but comes from China. Personally, I avoid the products of China for several reasons (no relation with the economic guere). Maybe we could find some from Korea ??

Thank you for your comment ! Currently, this product is what we found best in terms of value for our customers.


Very good variety of Koreans, gives a tasty Kimchi!
