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.

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.

    The regal whole star anise is very strong and perfect for making old fashioned hard candy. The star anise is a great quality and the flavor releases well when boiled.

    Regal Whole Star Anise 7 oz. #102708412 I have never purchased whole star anise so I cannot compare it to another brand, however I can say that for the price, it does come with a lot and when it arrived, the stars were in good shape. It also has a fragrant scent and I blended it with other spices to make a Chinese 5 spice.

    This was a great deal on whole spices. Being able to grind our own spices keeps the flavors fresh longer. This was a great deal on a great product.

    I use my star anise in combination with other spices. My favorites are to combine mixed peppercorns, cardamom, and juniper berries with apple cider for an overnight turkey brine. Speaking of apple cider, mix of few of these in with oranges, apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg to create your own at home.

    I could not find whole star anise at my local stores and I needed it for some Christmas recipes and again, great sized containers for the price and the product was excellent.

    I love this whole star anise. I will definitely recommend it. I primarily use this in my infused rice. And it tastes wonderful. I will definitely be using Regal Spice for years to come.

    from Todd's Kitchen of Comfort Food Posted on

    Getting ready to make some infused rice.

    if you need spices in large quantities, Regal brand is a good way to go. Everything I've gotten from them so far has been high quality and a really great price. This star anise is great for Asian flavored sauces, marinades and rubs

    great price, great quality

    Beautiful whole star anise at a great price! These seeds are huge and pack a big flavor too! If you don't use them all, put them in a pretty jar and they make a great display in your kitchen.

    from Buffi Cakes Posted on

    Nice star anise, use it in all asian foods, very nice quality and freshness, you get alot for the price, way more than in local stores.

    Posted on

    The Star Anise was very fragrant upon arrival. It's great for use in Asian and South Asian cooking. We use it to make Pho, Hong Shao Niu Rou Mian (Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup), and it can be ground up for use in Garam Masala or Chinese Five Spice Powder. As always, ordering the Regal Brand from Webstaurant is a good value, especially with Star Anise since it can be harder to find in a typical grocery store. The price is comparable to what it would sell for at an Asian Grocery Store.

    It tastes like licorice. It's good. It has such a pretty shape but easier to work with when you grind them. Freshly ground means fresher flavor too.

    Posted on

    oh star anise you beautiful beast...the wodnerful holiday scent of licorice ive used in my honey spice cookies, boilign to scent my home, and for my garam amsala mix, its a wodnerful scent and so wodnerfully priced.

    This is very nice star anise was a nice cheap price for the 7 ounce container has a nice smell the smell nice and fresh

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    One of my favorite 'secret' spices to use; a piece or two in a marinade or when reducing a sauce lends just a hint of the anise flavor without overwhelming the ground product can. I use it most often and most aggressively when doing an Asian smoked pork butt; tossing a handful of cider-soaked pieces in with the smoking wood does wonders to impart a unique flavor!

    from October Catering Posted on

    Lovely way to add the great flavor or appearance to any plate. This dried evergreen pod is beautifully segmented into 8 sections, great with mulled cider or a brine.

    Posted on

    This whole star anise is just as good as the pricier, name brand whole star anise, at a fraction of the cost. I will absolutely be buying all of my dried herbs and spices through Websturant Store from now on.

    from Mustang Alley's Posted on

    An unusual but important spice in Asian & Indian cooking as well as in baking! The quality of this star anise is exceptional. Grinds easily for cooking.

    Posted on

    Great Spice. We use it when we make Pho. This spice was really fresh upon arrival. It is a large container for home use might expire before we can use it all.

    Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from jobabyllc Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    Very affordable, high quality spice. This is difficult to find locally without paying a ridiculous price for it. The containers are very convenient and easy to store.

    Lately I have been finding it hard to find the Whole Star Anise. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Webstaurant.com has it in their inventory.

    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.

    This Regal Whole Star Anise was of great quality and work well with my dishes. The price was worth buying and will buy more when needed.

    from T & C Catering Services Posted on
