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 Vanilla Nut tastes just like Mediterranean Vanilla Nut with its rich, nutty creaminess that has such universal appeal, it has always been Teeccino’s top selling flavor from day one. Dandelion Vanilla Nut 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 Vanilla Nut produces a cup where deliciousness meets the health benefits of nature’s healing herbs.
Ingredients: Roasted organic carob, organic chicory, organic dandelion root, dates, almonds, organic figs, natural vanilla extract, natural nut flavor.

"I have been drinking regular Teeccino for years but was worried about the barley since I am celiac.
Now I don't have to worry and the taste is oustanding! My husband is pretty fussy, he'll drink only one kind of the teeccino with barley and none of the flavored ones but he really likes this vanilla nut!"

"This dandelion version of Vanilla Nut makes the other Vanilla Nut seem just "okay."
Now I have 3 favourites: Java, French Roast, Dandelion Vanilla Nut.
What a great idea! And now, if you wanted to, you could bake with the leftover grounds (Teeccino smells like cake so why not put it *in* cake?)."

"After having been told that I needed to include dandelion in my diet, I was a bit perplexed at what to do until I ordered your product. It is smooth, and light and tastes deliciously nutty with hints of vanilla and I am getting dandelion in my diet! "

"This is my second favorite flavor, but we alternate with our favorite (Dandelion Mocha) just for variety. We brew a pot of Teeccino every day and usually like it best with a little creamer and an inch of milk.
We like other Teeccino varieties, but the likelihood of getting some of the grounds in the cup was too risky for my celiac husband. Thank you for developing the Dandelion flavors, which contain no barley at all. "

"I like the taste. 4 rating is only because I like the Dark Roast better. Super to have the choice finally as a Gluten-Allergic, Caffeine-free (by choice) individual to have my "hot drink" whenever I want it. I use a French Press for speed and best flavor."

Dates and figs slightly sweeten Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors without adding significantly to the calories per serving. Dates and figs contain antioxidants that are water soluble and extract during brewing.
Teeccino's Mediterranean flavors contain golden roasted almonds that create a rich, nutty flavor yet don't add any fat to a cup of Teeccino. Almonds also contain significant quantities of antioxidants including proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and...
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.
