Herb of the Month: Licorice Root

Herb of the Month: Licorice Root

Posted by TriLight Health on Jun 3rd 2022

When most people hear licorice they think about candy. However, the flavor was derived from an herb. (Modern licorice candy tastes more like anise than licorice root)  This herb is still used in culinary preparations- sometimes candy- and in herbal remedies. It has a natural sweetness that lends itself well to herbal preparations and is often added to enhance the flavor. A compound called glycyrrhizin accounts for the sweetness of licorice root, making it 50 times sweeter than sugar! A little bit goes a long way with this herb.
