Comparative study was carried out among the polysaccharides of Chinese, Lithuanian and Hungarian origin Glycyrrhiza glabra L. as well as the Hungarian origin Glycyrrhiza echinata L. Monosaccharide composition, measured as alditol acetates, of Chinese and Hungarian G. glabra was very similar, but the Lithuanian G. glabra and the G. echinata were quite different. The monosaccharides of polysaccharides isolated from root and stem of G. echinata show significant differences (Table II.). All investigated samples contain glucuronic acid, the G. echinata contains also galacturonic acid (Table II.). Some fractions with higher uronic acid content and the acidic polysaccharides isolated from these fractions were studied and their monosaccharide composition was determined (Table III. and IV.).
