Every cup of Teeccino is naturally prebiotic due to its inulin that extracts from chicory and dandelion roots during brewing or steeping. Prebiotics are nutrients that help support good digestive health by nourishing probiotics, the microorganisms that live in your digestive tract and positively affect your health in many ways.
Inulin is a prebiotic soluble fiber found in many common foods such as wheat, garlic, artichokes, sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes) and raisins, albeit in small quantities. However, chicory roots contain much higher amounts of inulin than any of these foods.
The good news for Teeccino drinkers is that a substantial amount of inulin from chicory (between 390-650 mg in each cup depending on brew method) can double your daily intake of this important prebiotic!`
About 2 years ago I began to have acid reflux and ulcer pain. After a couple of porcedures to determine I had gastric ulcers, my doctor told me to drop the caffeine. UGH…no coffee? How could I function?
Well as it turns out with some research into chicory, I stumbled over Teeccino. I was sold! It was so nice to have a hot cup of “coffee” without having terrible stomach pains and all the problems that go with it. I tell all my friends about Teeccino! Many people are hesitant but once they try it, they don’t look back. Thank you again!
When I started getting massive acid reflux, even decaf was giving me pain! A friend gave me Teeccino French Roast organic sampler pack and I tried it! It was exactly what I was looking for. Now my husband has quit coffee and we are free of all caffeine. I absolutely LOVE this product. We call is our special coffee – although as an alternative to coffee, it is the BEST on the market!
Roasted chicory root, France’s favorite coffee alternative, imparts a smooth, non-acidic, full-bodied depth to Teeccino.
Chicory root contains the highest amount of inulin of any food. Inulin is the prebiotic soluble fiber that feeds your beneficial digestive flora, also called probiotics. Brewing chicory root in hot water naturally extracts its inulin. Improve gut health and support your immune system with a daily cup of Teeccino that keeps your probiotics flourishing!
Called “Café D’Orzo” in Italy, Mugicha in Japan and Boricha in Korea, roasted barley is loved around the world for its dark roasted flavor that is considered cleansing and refreshing when enjoyed as a hot or cold beverage. Roasted barley complements roasted chicory and carob to create Teeccino's coffee-like brew that brims with health benefits.
Barley is reputed to be cleansing for the body, good for digestion, helpful in reducing stress, and high in antioxidants.
Carob pods, harvested from a wild tree native to the Mediterranean, are lightly roasted to bring out their sweet, chocolatey flavor.
A member of the legume family, the dark brown pods contain calcium and 24 antioxidants that help fight free radicals. Pinitol, a unique compound in carob pods, helps boost your energy naturally. Carob’s carbohydrates are bound in complex fiber for a low glycemic index that supports good digestion and regularity. Compared to chocolate, carob is stimulant free, has no added sugar or fat and thus is much lower in calories.
With a taste that combines flavors from coffee and chocolate, roasted organic ramón seeds produce a delicious brew that the Maya were drinking way before the Spaniards brought coffee to the Americas. Growing to a height of 130 feet, Ramón trees are an essential part of the upper canopy in Central American rainforests.
Now wild harvested in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve, this nutritious seed provides a source of food and income for rural communities.
