Does anyone know if soybean malt contains gluten? It seems, from what I've read, that it does not contain barley, but I can't tell for sure. It is an ingredient in an otherwise safe Korean hot pepper paste.


Thanks!

I was curious about this so looked it up.

While traditional homemade doenjang is made with soybeans and brine only, many factory-made variants of doenjang contain a fair amount of wheat flour just like most factory-made soy sauce does. Some current makers also add fermented, dried, and ground anchovies to accentuate the doenjang's savory flavor.

Hope that helps.

Any grain can be malted, although barley is the most common. I would not expect barley to be present in malted soybeans. If it was, the ingredients list would disclose it as a distinct item.
