Products with anise


Anise, we know very well, is a plant that comes from the areas of the Middle East and, more generally, from the Mediterranean area. Among the most widespread varieties we find, without a shadow of a doubt, green anise, which is also the species that has found the greatest proliferation in the Italian peninsula.

Precisely for the latter reason, in Italy green anise is considered a spontaneous plant, but it is not the only species that populates the territory in which we live since there are also star anise and peppery anise.

The spice of anise is undoubtedly one of those that have spread more easily and quickly all over the world and, as it was easily understood on the other hand, sees it involved in a huge number of recipes that allow you to create the most diverse anise-based products.

This plant was already used at the time of the ancient Romans with a typically flavoring function towards meats such as chicken, rabbit or pork.

Instead, especially in Scandinavia, the anise spice was used above all as an accompaniment to cheeses and some vegetables.

Nowadays, anise can be easily found in numerous confectionery products, such as biscuits, but also pandolci, dried fruit and candies.

Confectionery industry

We have previously highlighted how anise can currently be found above all in confectionery products.

Especially within the European continent, anise is used to make sweets that have quickly become typical products of some areas and places: in any case, these are biscuits, but also pandolci and gingerbreads, without forgetting some traditional cakes and dried fruit.

Anise is also often used for the production of some types of ice cream: obviously, most people have tasted an anise ice lolly at least once in their life, perhaps on the beach under an umbrella.

The typical sweets with anise, on the other hand, can be made using the dried seeds of the plant, after they have undergone a rather rigorous and meticulous processing: in fact, the anise seeds can be used both after being crushed and reduced to powder. , but also within liqueurs to carry out a flavoring action that characterizes typical drinks such as Sambuca, Anisette, Absinthe, Arrak and Pastis.

In the pharmacy

The digestive properties of anise were particularly exploited in ancient times and the Greeks and Romans made extensive use of it to combat various symptoms.

However, these beneficial effects of anise against problems affecting the digestive system are still exploited today, since anise is often used as a digestive remedy and also in herbal preparations to combat coughs.

In the East, however, the medicine of those places believes that anise has an enormous beneficial property against cancer, even if there is no scientific basis to support this theory.

In any case, the artichoke is also often used to make an excellent infusion that is extremely useful for fighting stomach cramps; moreover, anise is also used to perform an inhibitory action against the fermentation processes that take place inside the intestine and also guarantees an excellent antispasmodic function.

Among the most important beneficial properties in the pharmaceutical field of anise, we must certainly underline the fact that it guarantees positive effects against nausea, vomiting and flatulence: in some cases it can also be accompanied by fennel, in such a way as to carry out a beneficial action more effective and powerful.

Products with anise: Sale and prices

On the market we can find, as we said earlier, a very large number of anise-based products.

Biscuits and various other products made with anise can be found quite easily in major supermarkets, although for more specific confectionery products it is best to look in herbalists and health organic shops.

By shifting our attention, instead, to drinks, we can easily see how anise is used to make a large number of liqueurs and, in this case, the price can vary with great differences from one product to another.

Taking into consideration the most famous aniseed liqueur, namely Sambuca, we can see how it can often be found in supermarkets or shops that deal with wines, sparkling wines and liqueurs: the price of this anise-based product is quite high, since a bottle of anise hardly comes to cost under fifteen euros, while in most cases (especially if you want to buy a quality liqueur) it goes from 20 euros upwards.

Among the other anise-based liqueurs there is absinthe: it is important, in case you want to buy it, to find a quality product and only at that moment to buy it; obviously, it will take a large amount, between 15 and 40 euros to buy a bottle of the best absinthe.
