Meltzers Licorice Puremints contain real Licorice root, not just flavor. Our Licorice is a special type called DGL Licorice. DGL is a standardized licorice of the highest quality. It has the glycerhizinic acids removed and it is popular for helping digestion and the stomach. We add a custom blend of anise, cardamom, and fennel for a full bodied licorice taste and the best healthy Pastille available.
