Let's taste the Korean Chilli Paste called Gochujang

Gochujang to Be Classified by Spiciness

The Korean food industry has agreed to five standard levels of spiciness for gochujang, or Korean chili paste, for international customers.

But Korea's two biggest food companies, CJ and Daesang, find it difficult to agree on the terminology and unit they will use. CJ says it will use "medium" for the third level, while Daesang says it wants to use "moderate." And the two companies are also debating over whether to use a Scoville unit or PPM, which both measure the spiciness in a dish

 Korea's  ginseng are set to become internationally recognized products. According to the government the  traditional Korean foods have passed seven of the total eight steps of reviews by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, which defines international food standards.

Korean chili paste is expected to receive international protection of its Korean name gochujang. And Korea's ginseng products will now be exported to more countries as they will no longer be classified as medicinal products.

The government says the new-found recognition will hopefully lead to people around the world knowing more about Korean food.
