Golden Fields Chicory Coffee Granules
Golden Fields’ Chicory coffee is made from roasted chicory roots. Chicory is of the same family as dandelion, but is sweeter.
Scientific studies on the chicory are numerous and well documented. Chicory helps the digestive functions of the pancreas, liver and gall bladder, stimulates appetite and helps digestion. Chicory is also documented to stimulate lactation. It has properties similar to those of dandelion, its actions being tonic, laxative and diuretic. As well as its bitter constituent, it contains inulin, other sugars of the fructose family, which makes Chicory coffee suitable for a diabetic diet.
Chicory is a fine coffee substitute in itself or with spices or ginger added. It combines well with real coffee and, as a result, coffee has a less stimulating effect. An all milk drink is made more digestible with chicory infused in it, and has a beautiful sweet flavour.
All certified organic and grown in New Zealand
The sachets contain very finely ground chicory root (Cichorium intibus), lightly roasted, and some roasted barley malt (not more than 10%). The chicory combines well with roasted malt and underlines the coffee likeness of the drink. Chicory fines are very difficult to handle and the roasted malt acts as a free flowing agent.
The granules are small pieces of root without fines. They are made of 100% chicory root.
