What is Chicory Root Powder?
Cichorium intybus has been employed as a food source and in folk herbalism for thousands of years. Today, roasted chicory root is popular as a slightly bitter coffee substitute. A member of the Asteraceae family, roasted chicory root powder can be blended into hot beverages, encapsulated, extracted, and infused.
Belonging to the Asteraceae family, chicory is a larger relative of the dandelion. Its large taproot has been used as a coffee substitute for generations, especially when coffee was unavailable. Chicory's leaves are used in salads and spring tonics in the same way as dandelion greens. It has been cultivated along the Nile in Egypt for thousands of years. Charlemagne listed it as one of the herbs he required be grown in his garden. It was brought to North America from Europe in the 18th century and is now established quite well here. Chicory can also be eaten as a food and consumed as a beverage making it the number one coffee substitute.
Chicory root powder contains a special class of carbohydrates known as fructans; a group containing inulin (not to be confused with insulin) and oligofructoses. Chicory is also called kasni.

Chicory Root Powder Benefits:
1. Reduces absorption of glucose in the intestines
The sugar glucose is absorbed in the small intestines. Research studies have shown that when glucose is consumed with chicory root extract, glucose absorption in the small intestine is reduced. The reduction in glucose absorption is attributed to the increased viscosity in the intestines from the chicory root extract. Therefore, when taking in food that has glucose on a ketogenic diet, it may be beneficial to pair it with chicory root powder to reduce glucose absorption and therefore, an insulin response.
2. Increases beneficial bacteria and reduce pathogenic bacteria
The inulin in chicory root has been shown to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestines called bifidobacteria.[4,5] In addition to many health benefits not discussed in this article, bifidobacteria acts as an antigenotoxic in the colon which helps reduce tumor growth there. Chicory root has also been shown to suppress the growth of bacteria that may be pathogenic, such as Bacteroides/Prevotella and Clostridium histolyticum/C. lituseburense group.[5
3. Decreases hemoglobin A1C
Hemoglobin A1C is a marker used to identify blood glucose concentrations over a 3-month period. Lower A1C levels indicate lower blood sugar over the past 3-month period. This may be especially important for those struggling to control high blood sugar levels, like type 2 diabetics.
4. Improves adiponectin levels
Adiponectin is a hormone that is secreted from adipose tissue and helps regulate glucose levels. It has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity possibly by increasing fat breakdown/utilization and suppressing glucose production in the liver.
5. Increases serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol
HDL cholesterol is considered “good” cholesterol because it picks up cholesterol circulating in your bloodstream and carries it back to the liver for possible removal.
6. Lowers serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol
LDL cholesterol is typically considered “bad” cholesterol because it may accumulate in the arteries and possibly turn into plaque. Plaque leads to clogged arteries and if too much builds-up, complications may occur like stroke or heart attack.
7. Lowers serum apolipoprotein B/apolipoprotein A-1 ratio
Organic chicory root powder has been shown to significantly reduce apolipoprotein B (ApoB) which is the primary protein in LDL cholesterol. Apolipoprotein A-1 (ApoA1) is the primary protein in HDL cholesterol. The ratio of ApoB: ApoA1 is indicative of risk for coronary artery disease – the lower the ratio, the less risk.
8. Anti-inflammatory properties
Chicory root extract has been shown to reduced inflammation in inflamed human colon cells.
9. Anti-carcinogenic properties
Chicory root extract has shown to reduce the risk for colon cancer. This reduced risk for cancer has been attributed to the increased growth of the beneficial bacteria, bifidobacteria, in large intestine,
