    I went to whole foods and my local nutrition store and all of the chickory coffee contains barley. Is barley acceptable on the “strict diet”?

    I purchased an Ayurvedic Coffee and it hasn’t created any issues as near as I can tell. I havent had any in over a week though. Here are the ingredients:
    Organic Roasted Barley, Organic Roasted Rye, Organic Roasted Chickory, Organic Ashwagandha, Organic Shatavari, Organic Brahmi, Organic French Vanilla

    Is there anything in this to avoid?

    I’d get organic chickory where chickory is the only ingredient. They may sell some in the herbs section. You can order online or grow in garden as well.

    Thanks for the advice Raster. Much appreciated, we are beginning to plan our garden for this year. I will add that in. I’m still interested to know if any of the ingredients are already known to cause flare ups.

    Funbuzz, I purchase mine from Nuts.com. The only ingredient is Chicory. I have been using the company for years and they produce great quality products. The version I buy is not organic. The price is 6.99 for 1lb. I think Chicory should be definite for all on this diet based on it’s high Prebiotic %. Able drank it for several months during his treatment and is healed now;further proof it’s a good choice. I have really grown to like it and drink it without any coconut milk, just a dash of cinnamon.

    I found this list of top prebiotic foods on wikipedia. Obviously we can’t eat the bottom 3.

    I personally wouldn’t consume something that has grains in the ingredients such as barley and rye. Whole foods will take it back if you don’t like this…

    Yes, as I am learning more I am in agreement with you. Although it didn’t seem to have a negative effect on me, it’s hard to know what’s occurring on the inside. I think I will refrain for now. I’m better to have one of the teas on the list when I’m I reach for a warm beverage.

    I would definitely avoid the glutenous grains it contains (barley, rye). Mountain Rose Herbs sells very high-quality herbs in bulk online, and I suspect you can get chicory from them.

    Hi,
    You can go online to vitacost.com and order chickory root coffee. Chickory root is the only ingredient. I notice a significant reduction in my blood sugar. Great for me since I’m a diabetic. It is roasted chickory. The best that I can find and I havbe been looking for quite a while. Good luck
    Miriam
