Product Description[ About Doenjang ]
Doenjang (or doenzang, bean paste) is a traditional Korean fermented soybean paste. Its name literally means “thick paste” in Korean.
Doenjang is rich in flavonoids and beneficial vitamins, minerals, and plant hormones (phytoestrogens) which are sometimes claimed to possess anticarcinogenic properties. In Korean traditional meals, the menu has concentrated on vegetables and rice, but doenjang, which is made of soybeans, has a great deal of lysine, an essential amino acid that rice lacks. Linoleic acid (53% of the fatty acids) and linolenic acid (8% of the fatty acids) have an important role in normal growth of blood vessels and prevention of blood vessel-related illness. Doenjang’s efficacy still exists after boiling, in dishes such as doenjang jjigae.
