Glycyrrhizic acid is a powerful sweetener, 3050 times as potent as sucrose (table sugar).
Chemically, liquorice Extract is a triterpenoid saponin glycoside being either the Ca2+ or K+ salt of glycyrrhizic (or glycyrrhizinic) acid. Upon hydrolysis, the glycoside loses its sweet taste and is converted to the aglycone glycyrrhetinic acid plus two molecules of glucuronic acid. The glycyrrhizic acid form is not particularly water soluble, but its ammonium salt is soluble in water at pH greater than 4.5. Although sweet, the taste of glycyrrhizic acid is different from that of sugar. The sweetness of glycyrrhizic acid has a slower onset than sugar, and lingers in the mouth for some time. Additionally, its characteristic licorice flavor makes it unsuitable as a direct flavor substitute for sugar. Unlike the artificial sweetener aspartame, glycyrrhizic acid maintains its sweetness under heating.
In the United States, glycyrrhizic acid is classified as "generally recognized as safe" as a flavoring agent, although not as a sweetener. Glycyrrhizic acid is used as a flavoring in some candies, pharmaceuticals, and tobacco products.
The European Union suggests that people should not consume any more than 100mg of glycyrrhizic acid a day, equivalent to approximately 50g of liquorice sweets.
In Japan, where concern over the safety of artificial sweeteners during the 1970s led to a shift towards plant-derived sugar substitutes, liquorice Extract is a commonly used sweetener, often used in combination with another plant-based sweetener, stevia. However, liquorice Extract appears to have some pharmacological side effects, and the Japanese government has asked its citizens to limit their consumption to 200 milligrams per day.
