We are engaged in offering excellent quality Star Aniseed Seeds to our valuable clients. Star Aniseed is the dried fruit of a small, evergreen tree that grows upto eight meters. When dry the fruit assumes a starshape with six-eight carpels in a whorl radiating from the tip of the slender stem. The essential oil resides in the pericarp, not in the seed. The dried fruits may contain 5 to 8% of essential oil, which dominated by anethole (85 to 90%). The other components, phellandrene, safrole and terpineol, have only small effect on the aroma.
Star anise can be used whole as a flavoring, its seeds can be used as a flavoring, and oth are ground. It is the dominant flavor in Chinese five-spice powder. It is also used in foods, beverages and liquors and confectionery, soap making and perfumery.
