A HEALTHY CHOICE
A product of the chicory plant root, a close relation of daisies and endives, ground chicory is the perfect alternative to coffee and provides many health benefits.
A low-calorie option- Chicory has less than 60 calories per 100 ml serving and is rich in fiber, making it a sound choice for those trying to watch their weight
An excellent source of vitamins- One bowl of chicory can provide on average 25% of your recommended daily phosphorous intake, and 10% of your daily recommended magnesium. It also contains substantial amounts of potassium, iron, antioxidants and vitamins.
A coffee alternative - As a stimulant, coffee can have adverse effects, including jitteriness, rapid heart rate and energy crashes, especially for older people who may be more susceptible to insomnia, stomach issues and tachycardia. Unlike coffee, chicory can be drunk all day without impacting your sleep, and has a positive effect on digestion thanks to its high fiber content.
VERSATILE & DELICIOUS
Chicory is an excellent cooking ingredient or marinade and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.
Short on time? As an extract, chicory is a convenient and easy substitute for brewed coffee reductions or artificial flavorings in cakes and puddings.
