Enhance your kimchi and other Korean dishes with these USDA-certified organic gochugaru red pepper flakes!

Always fresh from the last harvest, the selected peppers have been dried naturally in the sun, a process known as "taeyangcho".

Taste the difference with these premium organic Korean red pepper flakes! Discover their sweet, slightly spicy taste without a hint of bitterness.

Gochugaru (in Korean, gochu means "pepper" and garu means "powder") is ideal for all types of kimchi, spicy soups, stews and stir-fries. It enhances any food, Korean or otherwise!

Korean chili flakes are frequently found in many fermented dishes, including kimchi, kimchi chigae (fermented cabbage soup) and kkakdugi (diced daikon kimchi).


How Is Our Organic Gochugaru Made?

The Korean chili flakes are first grown naturally, without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Only the highest-quality peppers are selected and washed with clean spring water.

They are then let to sun-dry naturally before being ground. The Korean red pepper flakes are thoroughly inspected and any impurities are removed.

Sun-dried chili peppers (taeyangcho) are more vibrant and retain more nutrients and flavour than machine-dried chili peppers.

Actually from Korea and not China!

Island Eko Pantry
The best gochugaru you can find in Canada.

As a small business, it is not always easy to source the quality ingredients when it comes to budgeting, but we couldn't resist to get this Gochugaru as this website is the only one we can source organic gochugaru for large quantity. Needless to say, the quality of this gochugaru is absolutely fantastic! The colour and aroma are not comparable to those grown in China. When you want to make high quality Korean food, this is what you should get!

Moreover, the customer service is fantastic as always!

Thank you for carrying a great product!

Better quality for the price tag

Yes it's more expensive, but this is the only place I can find quality organic gochugaru in Canada. The favour is incomparable and I ended up using less than my recipes call for. Why not~
