Liquorice Root cut Organic 250g
Liquorice (lat. Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a plant that today grows mainly in the Mediterranean region and China. The shrub can grow up to 2 metres high and has a yellow, woody root. Liquorice tastes first and foremost: sweet. The roots are even up to 50 times sweeter than sugar. The well-known liquorice is made from the thickened root juice of liquorice. The sweet taste is, for example, the reason why sweet, flattering words are called liquorice shavings.
Licorice contains 2 to 15 % of so-called triterpene saponins. Mainly glycyrrhizin (Greek for "sweet root") is found in it, as well as other flavonides and coumarin.
According to a study from Japan, the glycyrrhizin contained in liquorice root is said to calm the upper respiratory tract.
