Glycyrrhizin

We are informed that people suffering from hypertension should avoid excessive consumption of Glycyrrhizin, which is a compound found in natural liquorice. Glycyrrhizin is the main sweet-tasting compound from liquorice root and is 30-50 times as sweet as sucrose (table sugar). Pure glycyrrhizin is odorless.
