Liquorice is obtained from the liquorice root in a complex process. The plant is 50 times sweeter than cane sugar and has always been used as a sweetener. The root is first extracted and then thickened. Sugar syrup, flour and gelatine are added to the raw liquorice to make it softer. Aniseed, agar, fennel oil, pectin, starch and also sal ammoniac are further mixed in. This is how the soft licorice is made.
