What Is Ganjang, or Korean Soy Sauce?

Ganjang is the main variety of soy sauce and offers a slightly sweet flavor. It's made from soybean paste, water, and salt. This soy sauce provides a strong umami flavor to stir-fries, marinades, and braised dishes. There are multiple types, including an option known as soup soy sauce.


Types of Ganjang and How To Cook With Them

Yangjo ganjang is a naturally brewed variety of Korean soy sauce. This option is typically higher quality and pricier. It offers a richer soy sauce flavor. Since it's higher in cost, many people use this soy sauce as a dipping sauce and avoid using it in larger quantities.


Jin ganjang is a Korean soy sauce that blends naturally brewed soy sauce with chemically made soy sauce. It's cheaper and offers a similar flavor to yangjo ganjang, though a trained palate can taste a slightly artificial flavor. Since it’s cheaper, many people use this variety of soy sauce for dishes that require larger soy sauce quantities, like braised meat and marinades.
