The process of making Canadian Vita products are very unique and sophisticated. However each product made using Canadian Vita ginseng goes through 5 major steps from the moment premium ginseng seeds are planted.
Farming We do not grow them, we raise them. Since 1983 the Huffman family has been entrusted with the crucial responsibility of overseeing and maintaining the growth of our roots. Their expertise in locating the best soil and unique growing method have fulfilled our goal of having unmatched ginsenoside levels found in Canadian Vita ginseng roots.
Harvest Depending on the batch, ginseng root is harvested from 4 to 5 years after it is planted. Canadian Vita ginseng is harvested in late October when the ginseng’s ginsenoside level is at its peak during the year. In this process a machine is used to pull the ginseng roots above the soil where it is picked by hand. They are then carefully washed with large amounts of low pressure water to prevent any damage done to the root’s skin. After that process they are once again evaluated and hand picked before being placed in our ginseng coolers.
Drying The precision it takes to dry Canadian Vita ginseng is a preserved heritage that embodies unique craftsmanship. The art of drying ginseng roots precisely to a moisture level of 3% at an industrial level has taken decades to perfect. This is a crucial process that defines our unmatched quality in ginsenoside levels and powerful taste.
Storage Naturally, dried ginseng can be stored for an extended period of time. However to maintain the ginseng’s taste and overall health, Canadian Vita is committed to maintaining the ginseng’s moisture level at all times throughout the root’s journey.
