So, what is licorice?

Licorice is a popular food ingredient derived from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, which is native to Southern Europe and Asia. This ingredient is commonly used to add a sweet and distinct flavor to many different types of foods, such as candy, tea, and baked goods. Licorice is also believed to have medicinal properties, as it has been used for centuries to treat various ailments, including sore throats and stomach ulcers. However, it is important to note that excessive consumption of licorice can have adverse health effects, such as high blood pressure and potassium imbalances. Despite this, licorice remains a beloved ingredient in many cultures and cuisines.
