Liquorice Root Powder

Our liquorice root powder has a sweet and slightly salty flavour and is reminiscent of aniseed and fennel in taste. Liquorice is a woody, herbaceous perennial herb native to Southern Europe and Asia which grows to a height of up to 2 metres. The leaves are with alternate, oddly, pinnate leaves, 7–15cm in length, comprised of 9–17 leaflets, deep green in colour when mature and bright green tinged with red when young. The inflorescences form panicles of individual flowers 0.8–1.2 cm in length and can be either creamy white, mauve, dark purple to pale whitish blue in colour.

Description

Product: Liquorice Root Powder

Description: Our liquorice root powder has a sweet and slightly salty flavour and is reminiscent of aniseed and fennel in taste. Liquorice is a woody, herbaceous perennial herb native to Southern Europe and Asia which grows to a height of up to 2 metres. The leaves are with alternate, oddly, pinnate leaves, 7–15cm in length, comprised of 9–17 leaflets, deep green in colour when mature and bright green tinged with red when young. The inflorescences form panicles of individual flowers 0.8–1.2 cm in length and can be either creamy white, mauve, dark purple to pale whitish blue in colour.

Interesting Fact: Liquorice was used as a medicine long before it was consumed as a food additive or confection, Nicholas Culpeper in his 17th century herbal says of liquorice powder ‘The fine powder of Liquorice blown through a quill into the eyes that have a pin and web (as they call it) or rheumatic distillations in them, doth cleanse and help them. The juice of Liquorice is as effectual in all the diseases of the breast and lungs, the reins and bladder, as the decoction. The juice distilled in Rose-water, with some Gum Tragacanth, is a fine licking medicine for hoarseness and wheezing’.

Ingredients: Dried and powdered root of Glycyrrhiza glabra.

Allergy Advice: Liquorice root contains a naturally occurring source of salicylates and is best avoided by people eating a salicylate free diet.
