OVERVIEW:

Chicory is a larger relative of the dandelion. The root is dried and roasted with a flavor described as slightly woody and nutty. The flavor is similar to that of coffee, although it tastes a bit more roasted and has a sweeter aroma.   Some detect in it a hint of chocolate. It is used as a coffee substitute without caffeine.

 

Chicory is also notable for its medical properties. It is high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, and has the highest concentration of inulin. Chicory root is a good source of fiber and is a cleansing medicinal herb that supports digestion.
