Any difference between cheonggukjang and natto?

Miss Needle | Feb 7, 2008 09:30 AM

It seems like the same thing on the surface -- both fermented soybeans. Natto seems more like whole beans while cheonggkjang is crushed. However, I like cheonggukjang while I find natto not to my taste. Is there a difference? Or am I swayed by the chilis they add when I buy my pastes of cheonggukjang?
