The shape, form, and price of American Ginseng has been deeply influenced by its massive popularity as both a medicinal herb and cooking ingredient in many Asian cultures. 

Today it’s possible to purchase a broad range of products that feature Wisconsin Ginseng. From energy drinks and nutrition bars to cough drops, gummies, candles, whisky, wine, and beer.

Like ginger, whole Wisconsin Ginseng root should be refrigerated to avoid spoilage. Place the ginseng in an airtight bag in the crisper section and it should stay good for up to two months.
