Chicory powder as a coffee substitute

Chicory roots are an excellent source of oligofructose. The combination of this substance with inulin encourages the body to start fighting excess weight. These two substances regulate the levels of ghrelin - an amino acid that is mainly associated with the feeling of hunger. By reducing the amount of grillin, chicory reduces the possibility of overeating and promotes a feeling of satiety.
