Root beer is a sweetened, carbonated beverage originally flavored with the root of the sassafras plant. Sassafras has been banned for mass production by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a carcinogen. Modern root beer has no standard recipe, but is often flavored with some combination of vanilla, licorice root, sarsaparilla root, nutmeg, molasses, cinnamon, wintergreen mint, anise, clove or honey.


Root beer is often found in recipes that also contain onion powder, tomato ketchup and Worcestershire sauce
