The part of the liquorice plant that is utilized as a flavouring agent and as a traditional remedy is the Liquorice Root. Liquorice contains specific chemical constituents that give it the sweet distinctive flavour, recognized by those who enjoy Liquorice Candy. Liquorice is also used to flavour tobacco products, beverages and foods.
It’s interesting to note, that most American Licorice candy does not actually contain any liquorice at all, but instead uses other flavouring agents, such as star anise extract, or artificial liquorice flavouring.
The Added Assurance of our Advanced Botanical Fingerprint Technology®
All plants have unique chemical characteristics, markers, and natural patterns that can be used to identify them (just like human fingerprints). Nature's Answer's in-house laboratory has accumulated and preserved over 800 plant specimens, creating one of the most comprehensive collections of genetically verified plant specimens found anywhere in the world. The state-of-the-art laboratory equipment has identified each and every plant’s distinctive botanical fingerprint, which is then used as a baseline to analyze the quality and purity of every incoming botanical used to manufacture their products. This unique process is their Advanced Botanical Fingerprint Technology®, which allows them to completely assure you that your products contain only the highest quality botanical ingredients.
Using carefully controlled extraction techniques, they capture the holistic balance® of each herb and the value is passed on to you. From plant to shelf, you can be assured that the product is authentic, safe, effective and holistically balanced®.
