Essential ingredient for Korean cooking

Complements a wide variety of cuisines
The spicy taste of many Korean foods largely comes down to one key ingredient: gochugaru (red chili flakes). Korean gochugaru is also known as Korean chili powder, Korean chili flakes, red pepper flakes. Korean hot pepper flakes are usually a vibrant red, coarse in texture and fairly spicy in taste, with a hint of sweetness.

A must-buy ingredient
Gochugaru is one of most essential ingredients in Korean cooking. It simply cannot be replaced with chili flakes or sauces from other places when it comes to cooking authentic Korean food. Gochugaru tastes quite different to other non-Korean standard chili powder and chili flakes varieties (e.g. cayenne pepper powder). It is much milder in taste in comparison, so it is best not to substitute with them.
