Star anise contains shikimic acid, an important ingredient against Asian avian influenza virus. Experts say this is the only weapon in the world against bird flu. Rich in China and Vietnam, it is the fruit of a small oriental tree species of the Magnoliaceae. It has a spicy taste and resembles licorice. It is a traditional condiment in Eastern cuisine and is also the main spice for French green ouzo and ouzo liqueurs. It can also be used to increase the aroma of candy, ouzo and tobacco.
1. An anti-tumor drug, which is also a synthetic raw material for anti-tumor drugs such as dioxamycin and glyoxalase inhibitors
