The root of the licorice plant has a long history of use. According to legend, the ancient Greek physician Dioscorides advised the military troops of Alexander the Great to chew licorice root to allay thirst when marching long distances and water was hard to find. In Medieval Europe, licorice root was so much in demand to mask odors associated with poor sanitation and the taste of spoiled food that its import was heavily taxed in order to provide funds to repair London Bridge.

Today, powdered licorice root is used as a foaming agent in fire extinguishers and as a flavor additive to candies, baked goods, teas and home brewed beers.

licorice root

Glycyrrhiza glabra is also referred to as European licorice since that’s where this species originates. It differs from the dozen or so other species of licorice in that its root is characterized by super sweetness compared to the pungent bitterness of, for example, the root of American licorice.

The sweet flavor of licorice root is owing to a glycoside called glycyrrhizin, which is also noted for its anti-inflammatory and hepatic protective qualities. In fact, this compound is used in Japan to combat hepatitis C. It’s also used in the food and pharmaceutical industries as a flavoring agent, emulsifier and thickener.
