Licorice root, or ‘liquorice’ in British spelling, is the root of the Glycyrrhiza Glabra plant, from which a sweet flavour can be derived. In the West, it’s often used to sweeten candies and other types of foods, while in Eastern countries it’s a popular ingredient in folk medications. In some countries, licorice is also consumed in natural form by simply chewing the root.

The term licorice comes from the Greek Glukurrhiza, which literally means ‘sweet root’.
