Dear Johno
I must admit that I do not know what the difference is between standard licorice and deglycerised licorice, but suspect that you may need to use the most natural or unprocessed version (ask at your health shop if you can buy untreated licorice) You would have to phone the manufacturers for an answer. You will also have to experiment with licorice to see if it specifically helps you, because IBS is an individual condition - some patients may react positively and others negatively to this product.
