To produce Doenjang with any sort of value as a consumable product, it takes at least a year from start to finish. Excellence of long-term fermented traditional ‘Doenjang’ (Science inside our traditions, April 30, 2012, Kyohaksa) Not only that, Doenjang tastes and smells different depending on the region and environment it is produced in.
