Mool yut (Korean barley malt syrup)?

Robert Lauriston Jul 25, 2008 04:27 PM

I'm looking for traditional 100% barley syrup.

The brands they have at Koreana plaza are mostly corn syrup. Some have no barley at all.

    What's the difference b/w Korean and other 100% barley malt syrups?

        Try the macrobiotic section in a health food store. 100% barley malt syrup is available as an alternative sweetener. Rainbow or Other Avenues and of course Whole Foods.

          Supposedly the domestic brands don't have the same flavor.
