DESCRIPTION


Sweet and mild, with an intensely clean odor, Anise Oil, also known as Anise Star and Aniseed, is a highly popular ingredient within the flavor industry for its remarkable likeness to licorice. Heavily used in candy flavorings, this oil provides a rich and powerful taste while simultaneously maintaining a mild profile that does not completely overwhelm other blended ingredients. This makes the oil especially versatile for many different products across the industry, including baked goods, pipe tobacco, and pharmaceuticals.

MARKET WATCH


LATEST PERSPECTIVE POSTING

Oct, 2020

    • Typically, between a Spring and Fall crop season, the Spring crop will be the larger of the two. Current demand for the seeds is very high, leading to less raw material available for Oil production.
    • Prices remain firm and availability is low. New oil will be on the market next month but it is too soon to say if prices will come down, as there are too many factors that indicate continued high prices.
