Licorice is a perennial herb native to the Mediterranean that's been prized for its nutritional and potential vitality properties for centuries. In fact, its use has been documented in Assyrian clay tablets and Egyptian papyri.
Today, you have many choices available when it comes to nutritious licorice root powder… even many organic examples.
With our Demeter Certified Biodynamic® Organic Fermented Licorice, we took high-quality to another level and went beyond organic.
The licorice for our Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Fermented Licorice Powder is grown on farms in the Bahariya Oasis in Egypt using biodynamic farming principles. The aerated soil and warm climate of the region create the ideal environment for hearty, healthy root systems.
For the first time, in combination with the high quality resulting from biodynamic agriculture, an advanced fermentation process was used to help:
Reduce sugar content to zero grams per serving.
Enhance bioavailability potential.
Increase the antioxidant activity of the licorice.
Utilizing thorough testing techniques never attempted before, we discovered antioxidant-containing polyphenol levels many times higher in our biodynamic fermented licorice vs. biodynamic unfermented and conventional licorices.
The combination of biodynamic and fermentation was no easy task. Breaking new ground, our team worked exclusively with the Demeter Standards Body for Biodynamic Certification to define and achieve Biodynamic Certification of the fermentation processes. This had simply never been done before.
We strongly believe biodynamic is the wave of the future and exactly what’s needed to ensure that our soils can continue to support agriculture and feed the world.
You can enjoy this delicious licorice powder in place of standard licorice to season dishes, add to smoothies and baked goods, or simply dissolve it in hot water to relish as a tangy tea.
