Licorice is a plant. You are probably most familiar with it as a flavoring in foods, beverages, and tobacco. The root is used to make medicine. Licorice is used for various digestive system complaints including stomach ulcers,heartburn, colic, and ongoing inflammation of the lining of the stomach (chronicgastritis). Some people use licorice for sore throat, bronchitis, cough, and infections caused by bacteria or viruses. Licorice is also used for osteoarthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), liver disorders, malaria, tuberculosis, food poisoning, and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Dry licorice roots are available in the form of short sticks or cut pieces. These are graded under regular un-selected type, semi-hand selected cuts and elite one by one hand selection and sorting. The selection type depends on the buyer’s preferences for quality requirements and reasonable price settings. These licorice sticks are also graded based on thin sticks, medium width and wide width diameter or thickness. Licorice roots are completely dried and the tips are yellow.
