Licorice Extract Liquid Paste
Licorice Liquid Paste
Licorice paste is a low-viscous, pumpable liquid extra comfortable in handling.
Licorice is actually the root of Glycyrrhiza glabra (related to the pea and bean family), a plant native to Europe and Asia, and often classified as a weed. In Greek, the name means “sweet root” and the root can be chewed on its own.
Licorice was one of the first foods to be investigated by the National Cancer Institute’s Experimental Food Program, and large amounts of it were even found in the Egyptian Pharaoh King Tutankhamun’s tomb. Overconsumption, however, has been linked to hypertension and cardiac dysfunction, proof that, just like most other things, it should be consumed in moderation.
Licorice root powder is also becoming more popular, used to flavor foods and baked goods.
The supply of natural root has suffered severe fluctuations owing to the exhaustion of supplies in the districts previously worked, alternating with over-production from newlyopened districts. This fact, coupled with the operations of speculators, has resulted in equally great fluctuations in quality, the new districts yielding full-grown root of good quality, the older ones that which has not been allowed to develop properly.
The cultivation of Liquorice is easy, sure and profitable and, if properly conducted, conducive to the betterment of the soil.
On account of the depth to which the root strikes when the plant has room to flourish, the soil should have a good staple of mould 2 or 3 feet in depth and be manured if necessary.
The planting season is either October, or February and March; the latter is preferred. The plants are procured from old plantations, being waste from the harvesting process, consisting of those side roots or runners which have eyes or buds, cut into sections about 6 inches long. They are dibbled in, in rows 3 or 4 feet apart, about 4 inches underneath the surface and about 18 inches apart in the rows. In the autumn, the ground is dressed with farmyard manure, about 40 tons to the acre.
During the first two years the growth is slight, the plants not rising above a foot the first season, and in Calabria the intervening space is generally utilized for the production of potatoes, cabbages and similar crops. The soil being heavily fertilized for the production of Liquorice, these crops are usually very luxuriant. After the second year, the growing Liquorice plants cover the entire soil to the exclusion of other growth.
Liquorice paste, usually referred to as liquorice, is a partially or wholly gelatinised starch paste which contains a range of sugars for sweetening and block liquorice juice as flavouring. The recipes used for producing liquorice paste vary particularly with regard to the desired eating texture.
