Thoughts from Low-sal-life

This has the same ingredient compilation as Ecco, including chicory root, a brand that tested negligible by Swain (1985). RPAH lists it as medium - which I kind of agree with. Because I'm a coffee drinker and like a thicker brew, I think the amount I need for it to taste good, makes it more condensed in salicylates. I can have 1-2 cups of this without a reaction, but not more than that.

This is a little better alternative to carob, I like the flavor, although it is light. I don't have a reaction if I don't overdo it. I am definitely going to try out the smoothie milkshake on the back - I think the roasty flavor will be very interesting.

⚠ Notes/Caution

Do not confuse this with "chicory coffee". That is a real coffee (Coffea arabica) mixed with chicory root. It is a popular blend from the southern US. One famous brand is Cafe Du Monde Coffee Chicory.
