Korean cooking ingredients

Corn syrup

Mulyeot 물엿

Korean Yeot is a kind of candy, so mul (water) yeot can be translated as “sweet liquid candy.”

In Korean cuisine, mulyeot is used in many side dishes, especially those you stir-fry. Clear mulyeot is usually made from corn, and brown mulyeot is made from rice (“ssal”), so it’s called ssalyeot. They are often interchangeable in Korean cooking, and usually Koreans use the word mulyeot for ingredients like ssalyeot, which can be confusing.
