Use Regal whole star anise to add flavor to slow-cooked dishes at your foodservice business.

Regal whole star anise is sold in 7 oz. quantities and features an easily-recognizable star shape and pungent flavor. Like anise seeds, star anise gets its distinctive licorice taste from a chemical compound called anethol. The two are not related botanically, though, as star anise is a member of the magnolia family. Regardless of the type of restaurant you run, this ingredient is a must-have for any commercial pantry.

Perfect for Ethnic Dishes

Regal whole star anise is essential to Vietnamese dishes like pho and is also a signature ingredient in many Indian stews and curries. Whole star anise also plays a key role in the slow-cooked dishes that characterize eastern Chinese cuisine.

Saves Prep Time

This 7 oz. container of whole star anise is a cost-efficient option for high-volume kitchens. Dehydrated spices also last longer than fresh ingredients and are much easier to store.

Regal whole star anise is great for use in meat and egg dishes and can also be simmered in black tea. Additionally, it is one of the essential spices in five-spice powder, a blend used in a wide variety of cuisines.

    I had never used star anise before. Needed it for a recipe and just couldn't find it at local stores, so I'm glad webstaurant had it. Great price for the amount.

    I make a Pho about once a month and one of the secrets to a good soup is the Star Anise the rich aroma of licorice has to be there. These Regal Brands are fresh and aromatic.

    Amazingly Strong Licorice aroma and flavor. I use this in making licorice flavored simple syrup for use in sodas and I absolutely love this. Even just opening the container to get a whiff of that gorgeous licorice essence is divine.

    Regal Whole Star Anise is an excellent addition to many exotic spice blends. It can be used whole in a bouquet garni to lend flavor to sauces and beverages as they cook or steep. The anise can also be ground to make a powder, suitable for making your own five-spice powder.
