Star anise is a licorice tasting spice that is great for upset stomach, colic and loss of appetite.
It helps to increase libido, as well as promoting breast milk and menstruation.
It was traditionally used in respiratory infections, lung swelling, coughs, bronchitis and flu.
The spicy seeds are the great source of minerals like calcium, iron, copper, potassium, manganese, zinc and magnesium. 100 g dry seeds contain 36.96 mg or 462% daily required levels of iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure.
Whole pieces are mostly used for garnishes or craft projects, while the cheaper broken pieces and incomplete stars are used in cooking. We grind star anise on the premises for the best flavor - use powdered star anise in baking, meat rubs, and bbq sauce.
