About Korean (Red) Ginseng
Definition and Origin of Korea Ginseng
The value of Korean ginseng was known in the world on B. C. 4th century, one of the that time books documented ginseng as emergent medicine and tonic for long-life, and ginseng was mentioned as a tonic for the first time as early as between 48 and 33 B. C. in Interpretation of Creatures written by You Shi of ancient China.. Moreover, Shen Nung Pen-Ts'ao-ching, Chinese medicinal book, describes quality and production area of ginseng, medicinal effects of ginseng, and so on. In addition, it shows that high quality of ginseng mainly came from Kokuryo. C. A. Meyer, Russian botanist, named it panax ginseng in 1843, and the genus name, panax means cure all in Greek (Pan does all, Axos medicine), therefore, true ginseng means Korean ginseng.
Ginseng, a medicinal herb, has long been used in maintaining physical vitality throughout the far-eastern countries including Korea and China. Its siblings are found in North America, Japan, China, and Russia out they are different from Korean ginseng in strain, morphology, and composition. Korean ginseng, Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, belong to the family Araliaceae and genus Panax to which six species belong. From the ancient times only Korean ginseng has been used medicinally, whereas several other Panax species has become in use in recent days. Eleutherococcus senticosus does not belong to the genus Panax, but it is called Siberian ginseng only to take ride on the popularity of Korean ginseng.
Shape of Korea Ginseng
Korean ginseng has a root system which includes rhizome head, main root, and lateral roots from which numerous fine roots and root hairs develop.
The shape of KOREA INSAM undergoes a process of transformation as the roots develop. In the first year of sowing, ginseng roots undergo about 17 months of elongation process (4 to 6 months) and flesh-up process (7-9 months) to become seedlings bearing heavy hair. The hair is trimmed off upon transplant in the second year of sowing. New lateral roots begin to develop, and the length of main roots and the number of lateral roots are set in the third year of sowing. In the fourth and fifth years, main roots flesh up and the lateral and fine roots grow fully to form the unique shape of ginseng roots.
Six-year-old ginseng which is used for manufacturing red ginseng has 7~10cm long main root (diameter : 2~3cm) with several lateral roots and large rhizome head. Its total length is about 34cm and weight is 40g 120g (in some cases, up to 300g).
Definition and Origin of Red Ginseng
Red ginseng is a result of steaming fresh ginseng with 4-6 year-old roots and its color is light yellowish brown. It is gaining popularity as Koreans are becoming interested in health products.
Red ginseng is hot-steamed, and then dried for the purpose of long-term storing.
Through the steaming and drying process, its moisture rate is reduced to 14% and its color becomes citrine or light yellowish brown. Its hardened structure enables long-term storage without any deformation.
Manufacturing of Red Ginseng
Red ginseng is manufactured after fresh ginseng is washed with water and is steamed in a container with vapor.
Steamed ginseng must be dried until water takes up 12.5-13.5% of ginseng. Ginseng whose roots are removed is categorized into first, second and third grade ginseng.
