AriZona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey May Not Contain Ginseng

AriZona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey may not contain ginseng at all, despite claims that it contains “ginseng for energy.”  On the official company website, AriZona asks, “Ever wonder how it became so popular?”  The company answers that question, saying that its Green Tea contains “100% natural green tea,” as well as “just the right amount of ginseng” and honey.  However, consumers allege that the Green Tea may not contain any detectible amounts of ginseng; if any is present, it may be a minuscule amount.

Ginseng has been shown to help fight fatigue and promote energy, making it an ideal ingredient for engergy boosting drinks and supplements.  However, over the past decade, demand for ginseng has skyrocketed while supply has dwindled, causing ginseng prices to surge above $1,000 per pound. Ginseng is so coveted in the marketplace that certain species have been harvested to the edge of extinction.  Companies that use ginseng in their products may be aware of this issue.  If they actually used enough ginseng in their products to provide customers with the promised energy boost, their revenues and competitive advantage would likely suffer.
