Description

Overview:

star anise seedThe star anise pod, which is shaped like a star (hence its name), has an average of eight points, each containing a single pea-sized seed. Both the seeds and the pod are used in cooking and contain the sweet, potent anise flavor.

Uses:

Star anise is a spice made from the fruit of the Chinese evergreen tree Illicium verum. It’s aptly named for the star-shaped pods from which the spice seeds are harvested and has a flavor that is reminiscent of licorice. Because of similarities in their flavor and names, star anise is often confused with anise, though the two spices are unrelated. Star anise is famed not only for its distinct flavor and culinary applications but also for its medicinal benefits.

Benefits:

Anise seed is low in calories but contains a good amount of several important minerals, including iron, manganese and calcium.

Human and animal studies reveal that anise seed may help reduce symptoms of depression and may be as effective as some types of antidepressants.

Anise seed reduced stomach acid secretion and protected against stomach ulcer formation in one animal study.

Anise seed and its components may decrease the growth of certain strains of fungi and bacteria.

Anise seed and its compounds may reduce hot flashes and prevent bone loss, but more research is needed.

Animal studies show that anethole may lower blood sugar and improve the function of insulin-producing cells.

Anise seed is high in antioxidants and can reduce inflammation to help prevent chronic disease.

Anise is available in powder, extract, oil and seed form. Most recipes call for small amounts of anise seed, oil or extract — as a little goes a long way.
