Chemical Properties:
  1. Glycyrrhizic acid is derived from the roots and rhizomes of the legume licorice root, and is the most important active ingredient in licorice, with a content of about 10%. Glycyrrhizin is also known as glycyrrhizin or glycyrrhizin. It is a glycoside composed of glycyrrhetinic acid and 2 molecules of glucuronic acid. White to slightly yellow crystalline powder, no smell, with a peculiar sweetness, the sweetness is about 200 times that of sucrose. Its sweetness is different from that of sucrose Chemicalbook sugar and other sweeteners.
  2. It takes a while to get a sweet taste after ingestion, but it lasts for a long time. A small amount of glycyrrhizin and sucrose can be used together with 20% less sucrose and the sweetness remains unchanged. Although it has no fragrance, it has the effect of enhancing fragrance. The aqueous solution is weakly acidic, and the pH of a 2% solution is 2.5 to 3.5. Insoluble in water and dilute ethanol. Easily soluble in hot water, it becomes a viscous jelly after cooling.
  1. Licorice is a traditional seasoning and traditional Chinese medicine in my country with high safety. It has a special flavor, and the effect is better when used in conjunction with sucrose and saccharin. my country stipulates that it can be used in biscuits, canned meat and poultry, seasonings, candies, candied fruit, preserved fruits and beverages, and should be used in appropriate amounts according to production needs.
  2. This product has a special sweetness. Its sweetness is about 250 times that of sugar. The sodium salt of glycyrrhizin extracted from licorice has a sweet taste even if it is diluted 4000 times in an aqueous solution. But directly used as a food sweetener is not suitable for some foods. Generally, it can be used in combination with natural sugars such as sugar, glucose, syrup, or appropriately combined with saccharin, glycine, propylene glycol, etc., to obtain a more palatable sweetness. Japan produced 240 tons of glycyrrhizic acid in 1978. The raw material licorice was imported from my country and Russia. In the highest year, 12,000 tons of licorice were imported. In 1978, 26% of total sales were used in medicine and cosmetics, and 70% were used in food. Used in cigarettes and others accounted for 4%, the main uses in food are: 1. Soy sauce can not only improve the salty Chemicalbook taste to enhance the inherent taste of soy sauce, but also eliminate the bitter taste of saccharin and have a synergistic effect on chemical flavoring agents.
  3. The bitter taste of saccharin can be eliminated in the brine method of pickling pickles and saccharin. In the curing process, it can overcome the shortcomings of fermentation failure, discoloration and hardening caused by adding less sugar. 3. Seasoning This product can be added with pickled seasoning liquid, seasoning powder or temporary seasoning when eating, which can increase the sweetness, get the salty taste that is hostile to the barbarian, and reduce the strange taste of other chemical flavoring agents. 4. The herring marinated in bean paste can increase the sweetness and make the taste even. In the process of licorice extraction, ammonium glycyrrhizinate is dissolved in an aqueous solution containing the calculated amount of sodium carbonate, and concentrated under reduced pressure to obtain disodium glycyrrhizinate (C42H60Na3O16) and trisodium glycyrrhizinate (C42H59Na3O16). It is also used as a food additive, as a sweetener for soybean paste and soy sauce. The LD50 of disodium salt for intraperitoneal injection of mice is 1.44 g/kg, and the LD50 of trisodium salt for subcutaneous injection of mice is 1.54 g/kg.
