DESCRIPTION

Glycyrrhiza glabra and Glycyrrhiza uralensis are the European and Asian species of the leguminaceae family used to make liquorice. Glycyrrhiza glabra is now cultivated around the world and is grown in Dysselsdorp in South Africa as part of a community project. It is produced for the sweet flavour of its roots which can be dried, peeled, whole or cut. The roots can be boiled to produce the sweet black substance which is used as a popular flavour for candy. Liquorice extracts are also used for herbal tea, tobacco, beer, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, baking and in the cosmetic and perfume industries.
