So, what is anissamen?

Anissamen, also known as aniseed, is a highly aromatic spice with a distinct licorice-like flavor. The small, oval-shaped seeds come from the anise plant, which is native to the Mediterranean and Southwest Asia. Anissamen is commonly used in sweet and savory dishes, as well as in drinks and liqueurs. It is a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern, Indian, and European cuisine, and is often used to flavor bread, cakes, cookies, and pastries. Anissamen is also believed to have several health benefits, including aiding digestion, reducing inflammation, and improving respiratory health.
