Plant extracts refer to substances extracted or processed from plants (all or a part of plants) using appropriate solvents or methods, and can be used in the pharmaceutical industry, food industry, daily chemical industry and other industries.

There is a conceptual crossover between plant extracts and Chinese herbal medicine extracts. The raw materials of plant extracts in my country are mainly derived from Chinese herbal medicines. Therefore, domestic plant extracts can also be called Chinese medicine extracts to a certain extent, and are generally included in the category of Chinese medicine products in my country's export trade statistics.
