Chicory Root gets a lot of well-deserved buzz as a coffee substitute. Chicory Root is a rich tasting source of natural caffeine. This roasted root is also high in inulin, a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic to enhance gut health.*

Chicory Root, also known as Cichorium intybus, is a member of the Asteraceae family and is a larger relative of the dandelion. It is known for its beautiful blue flowers. Chicory Root was brought to North America in the 1800s, and is now cultivated in the Eastern, Western, and Midwestern United States.ย  ย 

With its strong, toasty, and nutty flavor, Chicory Root powder can be blended into coffee or act as a coffee substitute.ย
