Metabolite profiling of fermented ginseng extracts by GC-MS

Ginseng contains many small metabolites such as amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates as well as ginsenosides. However, little is known about the relationships between microorganisms and metabolites during the entire ginseng fermentation process. We investigate metabolic changes during ginseng fermentation according to the inoculation of food-compatible microorganisms.
