Is being gluten-free important to you? Even though Teeccino has been tested to have no detectable levels of gluten at 5 parts per million when brewed using a paper filter, you may be worried that you might still experience a reaction to the barley in Teeccino. Understanding that gluten-sensitive people, just like caffeine-sensitive people, can be hyper sensitive to trace gluten, I decided it was time to create a barley-free coffee alternative that is absolutely gluten-free.
Teeccino Dandelion French Roast tastes just like Maya French Roast to satisfy the person who loves dark roasted, regular flavor. It brings the health benefits of roasted dandelion root including its inulin content, antioxidants, and stimulating effects on liver function to your cup. With more dandelion root per serving than any other brand puts in their tea bags, Teeccino Dandelion French Roast produces a cup where the deep, full body of coffee meets the health benefits of nature’s healing herbs.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic chicory, organic dandelion root, organic ramon seeds, natural coffee flavor.
May contain trace amounts of almonds.

"My husband & I own an office coffee service & love our coffee so when my husband was told,while being treated for something, he was to stop all but a small amount of coffee he was not happy! I had tried teeccino before but he never would. Desperate for something we read the reviews & decided to try the French roast & the Dandelion Dark Roast Organic. He has drank 2 cups of the dandelion one & just said you better get more on the way! All I can say is WOW!"

"This particular flavor has grown on me and I drink it in place of my usual morning coffee, since I can't handle caffeine anymore. At first, it tasted okay, but didn't compare to coffee. However, I didn't give up on it and kept drinking it throughout the week, and now I savor it. It's like my little treat for the day. It really does have a nice aroma and good flavor similar to coffee and I would recommend this as the best coffee sub I've found thus far."

"I have not been able to drink coffee for almost 2 years since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease. My body thinks coffee is gluten and it makes me violently ill. Today, a co-worker brought me the Dandelion Dark Roast tee-bag, and after scouring the ingredients, a brewed a cup. Can I just tell you that I sat there drinking it and wanted to cry! People may think I am nuts, but you have no idea how monumental this is for me. Finally, I am able to enjoy the taste of coffee again. Thanks for making it possible!!"

Teeccino's Maya flavors feature roasted ramón seeds, a nutrient-rich food of the Maya civilization. Ramon seeds are actually the seed of the ramon fruit. Ramon seeds do not contain tree allergens like almonds, walnuts and pecans.
Dandelion root is popular in modern cleansing and detox diets due to its reputation for stimulating the liver and bile. It has a long history of use as a coffee alternative.
