Roasted Dandelion Root, Organic, 1oz. bag
Roasted dandelion root has a long history of being used as a coffee substitute, particularly during times of economic hardship or coffee shortages. Dandelion root has a similar appearance and texture to coffee beans and when roasted, it develops a similar flavor profile. During World War II, for example, coffee was rationed and dandelion root was often used as an alternative. The practice of using dandelion root as a coffee substitute dates back even further, with some sources claiming that it was used during the American Civil War and in the Great Depression.
Dandelion root coffee is made by harvesting the roots of the dandelion plant, washing and drying them, roasting them until they are dark brown and then grounding them. The resulting powder can be used to brew a beverage that is said to have a similar taste to coffee. Some people claim that dandelion root coffee is less bitter and has a slightly sweeter taste than traditional coffee. Dandelion is high in antioxidants, minerals and inulin, a type of soluble fiber. We also offer local Dandelion Root from Foster Farm Botanicals as well as Dandelion Tincture.
