From the listing:
- Made from the water soluble extracts of barley, rye, chicory roots, and dandelion roots grown on certified organic farms in Poland.

- Used as a coffee substitute or complete replacement for coffee as it tastes like a full bodied cup of coffee for many. No caffeine, acidity, or bitterness. No withdrawal headaches.
- Dandy Blend has been bringing the benefits of dandelion and chicory root to our customers for over 30 years.
My Thoughts: 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 a little more condensed in salicylates. I can have 1-2 cups of this without a reaction, but not more than that.
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.
