A Korean jelly made from acorn starch. It has no fat, no cholesterol, no sodium, and a bonus 1 gram of dietary fiber. It’s also considered a health food that’s good for stomach ailments.
The texture is reminiscent of silken firm tofu, with a faint but pleasant nuttiness and a hint of bitter at the end.
