Extruded ginseng was manufactured using twin-screw extruder under 300 rpm screw speed, 21 kg/hr feed rate, 80-150oC extrusion temperature, and by addition of water (12.1-30.6%). Extraction yield and contents of total carbohydrate and uronic acid in extruded ginseng at room temperature extraction (RT) increased with increasing extrusion temperature, whereas those of boiling temperature extracts (BT) were not affected by increasing extrusion temperature. Contents of nonstarch polysaccharide (NSP) in RT and BT extracts increased 340 and 142%, respectively, compared to that of raw ginseng. Main sugar compositions of NSP in RT and BT extracts were arabinose, galactose, and glucose. Extraction yields of total and crude saponins in extruded ginseng at optimize extrusion condition were higher than that of raw ginseng. In RT extracts, molecular weights of polysaccharides from raw were higher than that of extruded ginseng polymer, whereas in BT extracts molecular weights of polysaccharides from extruded ginseng were higher than those of raw ginseng polysaccharides.
