  • why mess with the genetics, I know you said that its for better medicine. Hard to trust after the whole GMO with corn and pesticides..

  • Ha, my grandma used to put chicory in her coffee! She lived to be 96! Yeah, yeah, yeah, anecdotal, correlation doesn’t imply causation, etc., but still!:P

  • I LOVE coffee, but it has so many adverse effects that I’ve been having to limit how much I drink. It makes my face break out, for one. It took me years to figure out that’s what was causing my face to break out. It was always in the chin/mouth area, for years, no matter how clean my skin was, which is how I knew it was something I was consuming. It was the coffee. This is what prompted me to look into it and how I discovered chicory coffee, which is just a gift from God, because it allows me to have my cake and eat it too when it comes to coffee. Now I can drink it and not have to go to the bathroom 20 minutes later. Now I can drink coffee and still have clear skin. I can come home from work, brew some chicory coffee, enjoy a cup, and still be able to sleep after that. I’ve never been into it for the caffeine, so swapping my normal coffee for chicory coffee was easy. It’s so nice. I love it

  • I confirm. one day at my work i had chicory coffee without know about it’s benefits. and i liked it because i don t drink coffee so i had chicory coffee everyday and after some days i saw difference in my skin, i have some old redness from acne that i had in the past, and i saw a difference in the quality of my skin and the redness look better, even if i follow always a healthy life style, so i went and study what are the benefits of chicory and i was surprised, from that day i am drinking every day chicory and i am very happy that i discovered this coffee.

  • i tried chichorei root coffee and liked it
    it has more roots then dendelion which has more explosional taste.
    if i would choose chichorei it would be because it has more roots
    if i would choose dendelion it is because it’s more tstier but i like both
    but the overall test result will be quallity instead of quantity
    so on first place dendelion root coffee
    on second place chichorei root coffee
    the 2 alternatives can be sectioned into 2 zones
    in the spring i would drink dendelion coffe
    in mid summer i would drink chichorei.
    I’m busy grinding chichorei while typing.
    You don’t have to nessesary buy those.you can pick them for free.
    Especially in zones where they build new homes or on the field of forest homes.
    so yes it’s double worth it you work with your hands, you are more active you can tech others about it, you walk more and drink healthier.
    So praised be our lord and savior jesus who gave us the best wild stuff for free.
    away with mystery babylon who says buy this or buy that.
    thank you jesus for taking our sins away and gave us eternal life.and free food in this temporary earth.

  • its a great southern tradition heck we even add it to coffee we learned to do it before the war and during the war it was used a lot as a coffee substitute because of the blockade

  • I’m glad it’s hard to breed. You don’t need to change anything nature took million of years to perfect. The audacity. Also when I saw the potted plants I was confused. Chicory is a wild animal.

  • i drink it every day, it s like eating smth. i was trying to find a video on chicory and intermittent fasting…does it break fasting….i cant find the answer. it seems like it has a lot of carbs..so i guess it does break. drink it with cream. nice

  • For me the taste of the root itself was too strong, bitter and kinda “barky”. I have been using the instant chicory it has much more mellow taste. The kind I use is sublimated freeze-dried instant chicory. The process preserves the goodness of chicory and foams very well. https://www.facebook.com/thechicoryway/ if you want to try. Thx for the video!

  • I learn so much from you, thanks for sharing your knowledge of natural things! I’ve heard of chicory root in passing but didn’t do any research of it. I LOVE my coffee but I’d try chicory root out of curiosity to compare the taste.

  • we have been brewing chicory with coffee for more than 60 years. we used to roast and grind coffee beans and add a piece from a chicory bar.

  • Remembering my mother brought me to your site. She mentioned making coffee from the chickory plant but I don’t remember her telling me how to make it. Love your site and thank you for posting!

  • Thanks Rae! I am a forager and just found some growing out in my neck of the woods. I am headed out to dig it, roast, grind, and give it a try!

  • I drink chicory coffee. One cup a day and then green tea and other teas and occasionally non alcoholic mix drink like izzes and natural root beers

  • May want to try instant chicory it has a much smoother taste for those who find the brewed chicory a little strong and “barky”. I have been using the freeze-dried instant chicory imported from Russia. Freeze-dried means they don’t heat it up while making -> preserves original components. The facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thechicoryway/ has a link to it on eBay

  • Since you talked about Inulin at Plant Stock a few years ago, I have been drinking a chicory root coffee substitute in the mornings.

  • Yes … I have it an tried it today with just a Lil coffee mixed in, At my Health food market I tend to blend the cacao nibs with Chicory grounds.. Oh my it was strong but so NICE! My Sweetner I found surprisingly A NEW creamer by SplendaHazelnut flavor an I was DONE, I did research on it and was pleasantly grateful to know the medicinal benefits, I like it! I will say… due to High Fiber Content I have a glass of fresh water afterwards to push it all thruuu! Thanks.

  • Hi i bought chicory powder to mix it with my coffe but it was brown in color shown in picture but product i received is pale whiteish in color..i am very confused if its the same use to go with coffe..plz guide if u can dear..thanx alot

  • Ooh was very happy to hear that garlic is high in inulin because I have a delicious cashew garlic spread recipe that I eat frequently.

  • I’d never heard of it so never tried it. But you’ve convinced me! Where do you buy yours? I’m abroad so I figure I can proabably buy it on amazon.co.uk? I’ll have a look. Another possible alternative to coffee is chai tea. I don’t like coffee myself but chai tea is so richly flavored that it tastes like more than tea. Especially when you add your sweetner and milk to it. Usually I buy loose tea because you can add as much or as little as you want and I just trust it more.

  • With both of us having already spoken briefly about our issues with hpylori, have you seen a tremendous change in your stomach issues? I find myself having constant stomach issues ever since being diagnosed which was over 5 yes ago…

  • I plan on making Chickory Root Coffee 50/50 mixed with regular grounds, and also useing Fenugreek Water instead of water. I will add coconut oil with ceylon cinnamon and cacoa powder in small amounts for health. Cheers

  • Chicory Root straight or mixed with Coffee grounds, is really popular in the US, particularly in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the love of Chicory comes from the Louisiana French Cajuns’ ancestors.

  • Thank you for the information. Very nice to know.
    I want to buy chicory roots on trial use? Where can I buy? I am in Vietnam and do not have this kind?

  • Thanks for the info. Just tried Teechino coffee alternative brand. It has chicory and is pretty great. I don’t work for them I just wanted to share

  • Tried chicory and found it to taste like burnt coffee with a fistful of black pepper thrown into it. I havent decided if I like it or not yet haha.

  • I watched this video months ago and the seed was planted about Inulin. fast forward to last month, I got 2 lbs. of roasted chicory root ($3.30 per lb.) and a french press ($20 bucks) and I’ve discovered my new favorite drink. I pour 16 oz.s of boiled filtered water on top of a tablespoon of the roasted chicory root, I wait 7 or 9 minutes, plunge the plunger in the french press pour into a mug and to me it tastes better than coffee.

  • Hi. Recently learned about the many benefits of inulin and then purchased an organic supplement powder made from agave.

    Tonight while looking on-line I came across a University of Toledo study using inulin from chicory that caused liver problems in mice. Can you speak to this? Would agave be a safer source and what about the overall safety of inulin supplementation. Thanks very much. Subscribed.

  • A friend of mine from Belarus living in Czech told me about this so I started researching and didn’t expect to see such a beautiful melanated woman who’s already been hip to it. I’ll be trying it

  • whyyy whyyyyyy whyyyyyyyyyyy????? leave it in its natural state!!! this is just another form of sending a population to its demise faster. plants without seeds and/or ability to reproduction are not plants at all

  • Thanks so much for sharing I wanted to try it but I have terrible allergies so everything I try is a risk. This lets me know that it works so it is worth it to try,you have helped me so much more then you know..ty,ty,ty!

  • Idk if you have a video up showing you make you cup of coffee alternative, but if not I’d be stoked to see how you do it. Thanks for the info.
