My grandmother used to make it for me when I was younger in "latte" form (before I could have coffee), but I haven't seen it much in the US. Anyone got experiences?
We have a coffee stash on ship that's all private coffees and as a mutual respect thing we share.
I just got Chicory coffee which I love making lattes with. It's strong but no acid or caffeine really good with condensed milk and sugar.
My co-worker didn't know so she decided to dive into a can and didn't like it was strong. She thought it was rotten and decided to dump the can doing me a "favor." Worried I'll get sick.
Another co-worker saw this and at the time I was viewed as cold, distant, mean and irritable looking so I gave off a "strict vibe" I was usually alone and not social. Not normal for a 20 something.
This is how it went down.
Coworker 1 "Uh you tossed ricky's coffee out?"
Coworker 2 "well it's strong and funny tasting."
Coworker 1 "it's not coffee, it's Chicory he explained this to me and how nice it is. You just tossed good chicory away!
Coworker 2 (has vision of me flipping my shit) and she runs and loads the can with foldgers. Both ladies conspire to say nothing.
I know foldgers because my stomach gets horribly upset and for part of the journey back I'm like "Oh man this stuff must be bad." she sees I'm bummed because I'm popping tums or 90/10 milk coffee. I toss the whole can "the heck how did it go bad!?
Coworker 2: uh.... Ricky coffees not bad....I threw...your... Chicory away don't be angry please!" Looking like I was gonna strike her.
"Uh...okay" I chuckled "just if something I got taste funny just inform me next time. I'm not angry but no foldgers. Stuffs poison to me. You didn't know better and you tried to fix it."
She just went potato because she was expecting me to yell or freak or demand money or worse. I'm like "well shit lol okay tell me next time."
I like Keto Pint and other keto ice creams. They use these no-carb sweeteners. I note that Chicory root is one. I find myself wondering if digestive enzymes in supplements might break down these carbs. A lot of these enzymes are not the one's human naturally produce. In particuarl I note galactosidase breaks down olligosaccarides. Chicory has oligosaccarides...
So I find myself wondering if anyone in the keto community has written on this and I haven't been able to find anything. Seemed like I was asking a question to Google that no one has yet bothered to ask.
Personally, I like to pair digestive enzymes with any dairy or protein heavy meal. I like to get the proteins broken down before they exit the stomach. I'm having a hard time finding any supplements that would be keto friendly. I was hoping to find something with a lot of protease, papain, bromelain, lipase, and a touch of lactase, but can't seem to find 'the right one'.
So, what do people here think about this? Know of any articles to read up on? Any products that met what I'd tried to find but couldn't?
I am from India and we are in the trading business of Chicory. The process post harvest is very long and very labour intensive(especially removing chicory roots from soil and cutting part). If anyone is involved in chicory roots farming/business and can shed some light on how we can implement technology to make the process cheap and faster, that would be great!!
Does anyone know where to find this in Vancouver? I really want to make myself some Vietnamese iced coffee. I saw it on Amazon for 25$, but that seems overpriced and I'd rather buy it from somewhere local. Or does anyone know of vietnamese grocery stores that might carry it? I moved here recently and don't know of any.
I'm at 7 weeks now and I am really craving the fruit tea I have sat in the cupboard. Problem is, one of the ingredients listed is chicory root (in all 4 different boxes of the fruit tea in my house!)
I'm in the UK and have checked NHS website to see foods to avoid and nothing mentions chicory root, but keep finding tonnes of conflicting resources online (especially US based) saying it is a big no.
I'm dying for a cup of sweet fruit tea seeing as caffeine has been wiped out. Any help would be much appreciated!!
Curious if anyone has been on the straight up chicory train. I have the cafe du monde decaf (only stuff I could find in store) and I’m running through that until it’s gone so I can order some 100% chicory. Down to only decaf (max 2 cups before 10am) from my last update (What is happening to my changing body?!) and find the taste of coffee is still so goddamned good and would be happy with a substitute when I go 100% caffeine free.
I've looked at every single website and numerous threads but none seem to answer this question directly. I am looking at two products: Nutilight and Pyure Hazlenut Spread. One contains chicory fiber as its main ingredients, the other contains a lot of tapioca fiber.
So, should I count these as carbs? For example, if the label says 10g fiber, should I instead weigh it as 10g carbs?
