Consumer Alert -Understanding DGL Licorice
For this reason, glycyrrhizin is chemically removed, partially or totally, from imported licorice to form deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), before it is used in other products. Unfortunately, this chemical process alters the delicate natural balance of compounds found in the original licorice root. Such altered products, beside the chemical process and the content of pesticides, cannot be sold or advertised as "organic."
Some Southern European licorice roots, depending of the climate and location, have a much lower glycyrrhizin content, averaging 5% and, therefore, are suitable for human consumption in food and do not need to go through the DGL chemical process, but these Licorice roots are more expensive than their oriental counterpart.

The Founder of the ZOT brand came to the States in 1996 from Italy and attended various Trade shows, while attending these shows he noticed that he did not see any Organic licorice being sold.

He felt that the real taste of licorice was missing and in 1998 Phyto-Plus Inc. was developed. Phyto-Plus Inc. has the goal of becoming a major organic true licorice juice extract provider.
