Lovage - Levisticum officinale

29/04/2021

Most of us will know Lovage under the name Maggi or Vegeta. Today, it occurs very rarely in nature. We grow it in gardens, either in soups for the production of home-grown Vegeta, or in larger quantities in fields for industrial purposes. Lovage comes originally from Afghanistan and Iran, from where it spread throughout the world...

In addition to everything, Lovage is also a medicinal plant. Decoction of the Lovage root is used in the case of catarrh of the urinary tract and kidney failure. It also relieves menstrual pain and has a diuretic effect...

Leaves, seeds and roots can be used from the plant. Fresh shoots of the plant are used as a spice for its distinctive taste of celery. We also use it in sauces and meat dishes. The seeds are used as a spice, either whole or packaged. The seeds have a slightly bitter celery taste and can be used in limited quantities in salads, soups, marinades and meatballs. Ligurček's root is not used in culinary industry... But it has found its application in the medical industry. Lovage root extract also has a spasmolytic effect (drugs that relieve cramps). Lovage essential oil has antibiotic properties. The main components of the oil are β-phellandren (42.5%), α-terpineol (27.9%), cis-ocimene (7.5%) and dehydro-1,8-cineol (6.8%)...

We most often use Lovage in soups or as part of home-grown Vegeta, where it is one of its basic ingredients and which it adds to its unmistakable taste...
