Mulyeot (물엿), also known as Corn Syrup, serves three main purposes in Korean cooking. It is primarily used as both a sweetener and thickener but also provides a nice shiny glaze to the dish. It is often used in recipes for making Korean sweet snacks but is also found in many other types of recipes to add a touch of sweetness where required.
