      Hello,I was looking for gochujang and doenjang on Amazon and I realised how many of them contain alcohol as an ingredient. I was just wondering if traditional gochujang contains alcohol because, it is against my religion to consume any products with alcohol.

      Please reply

      I *think* the alcohol is a product of fermentation in this case. So it should be a trace amount. I’m unsure of the specifics of your religion, but I hope this context helps a bit.

      If you still can’t have it, you might try finding a recipe for homemade paste, and then neglect to ferment it. The flavor may not be as deep, but no alcohol!
