Korean red ginseng products that are offered in stick-shaped pouches are becoming popular among foreign consumers interested in health. The biggest merit of such products is their portability—they can be carried anywhere and consumed at any time. The popularity of Hallyu (Korean culture wave) has also contributed to the consistent rise in their exports. Below, Korea Agrafood introduces our readers to the major brands of Korean red ginseng extract products in stick pouches.
Cheong-Kwan-Jang Everytime is the pioneer among portable stick-packaged red ginseng extract products, and the product is also the most popular with foreigners. First released in 2012, it is currently distributed in about 40 countries including China, the US, and Japan. The product appeared in Korean TV dramas such as Dokkaebi (English titles: Goblin or Guardian) and Descendants of the Sun. It has many fans among younger consumers overseas in their 20s and 30s.

○Hansamin Good Day Stick
The main ingredient of Hansamin Good Day Stick is red ginseng cultivated in Punggi County, an area famous for production of high quality Korean ginseng. Along with red ginseng, the product contains other wholesome medicinal herbs such as balloon flower and jujube. Its ginsenoside content is about 10% higher than that of Cheong-Kwan-Jang Everytime, but the price is just half of its rival, making it a cost-effective choice for consumers.

○Chunjiin Plus One
Chunjiin Plus One is made by diluting red ginseng extract with purified water, which does not affect the main effective components of red ginseng, especially ginsenoside. The producer has obtained the KMF (Korea Muslim Federation) halal certification for its red ginseng extract. The viscosity of Chunjiin Plus One is higher than that of Cheong-Kwan-Jang Everytime and Hansamin Good Day Stick.
