It's a major ingredient in MAK tablets and a minor one in nectar. Doubt if 
they'll change 
the recipee jus for her, however. I personally am not convinced that its the 
licorice that 
caused her problems since its supposed to be an accumulative thing having to do 
sodium retention. But you can't argue with someone who may or may not  have had 
minor stroke due to something about trying that thing again because you suspect 
the ER 
doctor's diagnosis was wrong.
