The content of polysaccharides and their individual fractions in Agastache foeniculum and Agastache urticifolia herb were determined. It was found out that the predominant fractions of the polysaccharide complex were water soluble polysaccharides, the contents of pectin substances and hemicellulose B was rather lower, and the hemicellulose А had the smallest contents. The content of mono- and disaccharides in A. foeniculum and A. urticifolia herbs was investigated by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The sucrose, glucose, inositol and fructose were dominant compounds in both raw materials.
