From Greece to Egypt, and from China to India – where it’s used today in Ayurvedic practices – the versatile licorice herb is steeped in tradition. Intensely sweet, even pungent, with a slightly bitter edge to it, the flavor of licorice is reminiscent of fennel and anise.
Like many traditional herbs around the world, licorice contains a remarkable list of nutrients. Near the top of the list is polyphenols, natural plant chemicals with powerful antioxidant properties. We’ve taken these nutrients and enhanced them to provide you with unparalleled flavor and benefit.
The licorice for our Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Fermented Licorice Powder is literally one-of-a-kind. First, it’s grown on biodynamic farms in the lush Bahariya Oasis in Egypt. The aerated soil and warm climate of the region create the ideal environment for hearty, healthy root systems, while biodynamic farming practices help regenerate life in the soil and maximize nutrients in the plants. Second, it’s fermented, increasing the concentration and bioavailability of the polyphenols, including:
Apigenin – Up to 6 times more in fermented biodynamic over unfermented.
Luteolin – Up to 33 times more in fermented biodynamic over unfermented.
Isorhamnetin – Not even found in conventionally-grown licorice, there is up to 8.5 times more in fermented biodynamic over unfermented.
Quercetin – Not present in conventionally-grown licorice or in biodynamic licorice, but present in fermented biodynamic licorice.
Biodynamic® Fermented Licorice Powder is a top-quality licorice powder that can be used to season dishes, added to smoothies and baked goods, or dissolved in hot water for a unique, flavorful tea experience – no need to add sugar.
