Today’s health-conscious consumers expect and recognise the beneficial properties of liquorice, seeing it as natural product. They are therefore aware of the various ways in which liquorice is used to achieve its beneficial effects (teas, infusions, decoctions) and increasingly use it as a cooking ingredient.
Liquorice is seen as a healthy alternative to other confectionary.
Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
is a perennial plant that grows to about a metre in height.
Its red-blueish blossom appears in springtime.
Grouped in racemes at the axil of the leaves, its fruit form elongated pods containing black oval seeds. Used in medicine in ancient Egypt and India, its curative powers were also known in Greek and Roman times.
Liquorice is the confectionary ingredient par excellence. Perfect for consumers looking for intense flavours and beneficial effects.
It is used in the confectionery, liqueur and cosmetics industries.
