So, what is alcaçuz?

Alcaçuz, also known as licorice root, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to southern Europe and parts of Asia.

Alcaçuz is also widely used in the food industry to add flavor to candies, beverages, and baked goods. Its distinct sweet and slightly bitter taste makes it a popular ingredient in many cultures' cuisines. This versatile ingredient can be enjoyed in various forms, including teas, extracts, and powders, making it an excellent addition to any healthy diet.
