Liquorice is often found in toothpastes. Liquorice root powder can be ordered online from us in a package of 450 grams or 25 kilos.

What is liquorice root powder and where does it come from?

Liquorice root powder is the powder of the rhizomes of the liquorice plant (Glycyrrhiza glabra). This plant is native to the Mediterranean, Southern Europe and Asia, but is now growing all over the world. It has thick, woody roots and while you wouldn't know it, it is closely related to beans and peas. The plant is also called 'kalis wood' or 'kalisse'. Liquorice root was already used in the earliest history. The Ancient Greeks named it glycyrrhiza, after glykos (sweet) and riza (root).

Using liquorice root powder in your kitchen

Buying liquorice root powder online gives you a fine flavour for use in your kitchen. You can use it as a sugar substitute in for example desserts or in a cup of tea. You let the root soak until you think the tea is sweet enough. You can also use liquorice in savoury dishes. Add it to stews and couscous for example. Also add it to sauces and soups to create a special taste sensation. You can sprinkle it over meat too. Be careful not to become too enthusiastic about using the liquorice root powder. After all, it is many times stronger than sugar, which means that you soon use too much.

Liquorice root powder and health

Already in the Middle Ages people discovered that liquorice root powder has a beneficial effect on digestion. But that is not all. Liquorice has demonstrated anti-inflammatory effects and has a healing effect on the gastrointestinal mucosa. Liquorice root powder supports the adrenal cortex in its functioning as well. Your adrenal glands produce hormones that maintain different body functions. It is sometimes suggested that liquorice root is bad. Although bad is not the correct word for it, it is clear that glycyrrhic acid (the sweetener in the liquorice root) increases blood pressure. People suffering from hypertension should therefore be most careful when using it.
