Health Beverages

Chicory beverages are made from roasted chicory root.   For hundreds of years infusions of chicory have been known and appreciated on different continents as a nutritional and valuable drink as an alternative to coffee, tea and cocoa.

Chicory root tea is made by steeping chicory root - ground or chopped.  Chicory coffee is a beverage made using the roots of the chicory plant, which are roasted, ground and brewed into a coffee-like drink.  Chicory coffee tastes similar to coffee but has a flavor that's often described as slightly woody and nutty.  It's used either on its own or mixed with coffee to complement its flavour.

Food

In foods, chicory leaves are often eaten like celery and the roots and leaf buds are boiled and eaten.  Chicory is also used as a cooking spice and to flavor foods and beverages.  The crisp, mildly bitter leaves of this vegetable are delicious in salads.

Health

Chicory is used for loss of appetite, upset stomach, constipation, liver and gallbladder disorders, cancer and rapid heartbeat.  It is also used as a “tonic,” to increase urine production and to protect the liver.

Beauty Products

Chicory root is an anti-inflammatory herb which makes it wonderful for calming and soothing the skin.  However, the reason so many love chicory for skincare is because of it's ability to boost the skin's collagen!  More collagen in the skin means more elasticity, less fine lines and fewer wrinkles.
