Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Coffee Substitute with Dandelion, Organic
2.5 oz single serve packets
To most Americans, dandelions are just a nuisance that pop up in the lawn every spring. But in other cultures, dandelion is a valued vegetable and respected herbal medicine. Dandelion, which literally translates into “lion’s tooth” in French, is rich in vitamin A, C, iron, calcium and detoxifiers. It is one of the top six herbs in the Chinese medicine chest.
Dandy Blend is the only instant coffee alternative in the United States that contains both the health benefits of dandelion root and the rich, full-bodied flavor, smoothness and texture of real coffee. It is caffeine-free, and many people say that, because it lacks bitterness and acidity, it actually tastes better than coffee.
Dandy Blend is made of water-soluble extracts of roasted roots of dandelion, chicory and beets, and the grains of barley and rye. Nothing else is added. It contains no gluten. Gluten, which is comprised of proteins that are not water-soluble, is left behind in the grounds during the extracting process, leaving Dandy Blend gluten-free.
The sweetness some perceive in Dandy Blend is primarily from the fructose that occurs naturally in the roots of dandelion and chicory. Many people require no additional sweeteners. If your health practitioner has recommended that you give up coffee or add dandelion to your diet, Dandy Blend is the easiest way to do that while enjoying the flavor and texture of a good "cuppa joe" at the same time. It tastes remarkably like a rich, full-bodied cup of coffee
It contains more than 50 trace minerals in each cup, most of which the body uses to help synthesize compounds needed in metabolism.
There are no headaches or other withdrawal symptoms when switching from coffee to Dandy Blend. It is like switching from one brand of coffee to another. Most people generally can't tell that they aren't drinking coffee.
