Frontier Co-op Organic Marshmallow Root 3.81 oz.
Frontier Co-op Marshmallow Root (Althea officinalis) is a high-quality ingredient processed from the root of the marshmallow plant. Althea, the botanical name, literally means healer in Greek. Marshmallow is an herbaceous perennial often found growing wildly in damp areas. Marshmallow root is popular in household wellness recipes because of its sweet taste and starchy aroma.
While cultivation began in medieval times in monasteries and kitchen gardens, today this plant is grown commercially throughout Europe. Considered threatened in parts of Europe with restrictions on the wildcrafted plant, our Marshmallow Root is organically grown and harvested in Bulgaria. There are no artificial additives or chemicals used at any step of the growing process.
Marshmallow root is gluten-free and a great addition to your pantry. It is a key ingredient in many syrups, teas, ointments, and lozenges due to its sweetness and fragrance. Besides serving as a distinctly flavored ingredient in beverages, it's also used in skincare products.
