Product Description

Star anise is a spice that is commonly used in Asian cuisine, particularly in Chinese, Vietnamese, and Indian dishes. It is the fruit of a small evergreen tree native to China and Vietnam, and its name comes from its star-shaped appearance.

The flavor of star anise is similar to that of regular anise, but with a slightly stronger, more pungent taste. It has a licorice-like flavor and aroma, with sweet and slightly bitter notes. It is often used whole, and can be added to soups, stews, and braised dishes to add depth and complexity to the flavor.

Star anise is also a key ingredient in Chinese five-spice powder, which is a blend of star anise, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, and Szechuan peppercorns. It is also used in the production of some liqueurs, such as sambuca and absinthe.

In addition to its culinary uses, star anise is also used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is believed to have properties that can aid in digestion, relieve menstrual cramps, and alleviate symptoms of the common cold. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of star anise.


1. How long can star anise remain potent?

Ans - Generally speaking, when stored properly, whole spices like peppercorns, cinnamon quills, and star anise will maintain their ideal flavour profile for up to three years. 

2. What function does star anise serve?

Ans - Benefits of star anise for health

Star anise contains a wealth of antioxidants, including vitamins A and C, which work to fight off the free radicals that lead to diabetes and early ageing. The oil derived from star anise contains thymol, terpineol, and anethole, which are used to treat cough and the flu. 

3. Does anise benefit dental health?

Ans - It is a tooth and gum tonic. It is a good idea to chew on some whole star anise seeds to freshen your breath, clean your mouth, whiten your teeth, and tone your throat and gums. 

4. Does anise not harm skin?

Ans - Anise oil offers strong antioxidant protection since it contains phenols, which can assist to shield the skin by scavenging free radicals in the surrounding environment. Anise's chelating properties, which may stop some degradative peptides from acting, may be the source of this protective effect.
