Often called sweetwood, licorice contains an alkaloid called glycyrrhizin which is 50 times sweeter than sugar. For Alexander the Great however, there was no substitute for simply chewing on a piece of dried licorice root. The Egyptians taught Alexander the Great about how this root was not only an excellent healer, but abated the thirst of soldiers and left them energised for battle. The fact that licorice is surprisingly tasty made it easier to convince his troops to comply.
