For Those Who Should Not Be Drinking Coffee
David Winston, founder of Herbalist & Alchemist, Inc. in Wahington, NJ. says that "Bandy Blend is one of the few coffee substitute blends on the market that actually tastes better than coffee.
It isn't surprising that many prominent herbalists drink Dandy Blend regularly, and recommend it to their clients/patients as an excellent way to kick the coffee habit.
Dandy Blend is so versatile that, depending on how much powder you use, it can be everything from a pleasant, nutty roasted tea to a rich, strong expresso or cappuchino. It is also the easiest way to get the benefits of dandelion root into your diet. Add one spoonful in a cup of hot or cold liquid, stir, and it is ready to drink. It makes a particularly good iced coffee for use in warm weather.
- 1 level tsp per 8 oz = a tea-like beverage
- 1 rounded tsp in 8 oz = a rich, full-bodied coffee
- 1 heaping tsp to 1 Tbsp = an espresso-strength beverage
If you add any of the above to a cup of cold or hot milk or dairy alternative, add your favourite flavourings and a sweetener of your choice, you have a delicious latte, cafe au lait, or cappuccino. You can achieve the same effect often by adding flavoured creamers of your choice. Recipes are on the Dandy Blend bags. A booklet of recipes may be downloaded for free from www.dandyblend.com.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Why is dandelion included in the blend?
A: Dandelions have for centuries been a highly respected healing herb in Asia, Europe, and elsewhere. It is used as a spring tonic to rid the body of toxins that build up over the winter. it also, when roasted properly, provides a mild flavour that counteracts the "bite" often experienced from other ingredients in substitutes such as chicory.
Dandy Blend seems so expensive. what is the cost per cup?
A: Dandy Blend is so concentrated that it takes very little powder to make a rich, full-bodied cup of "coffee". Each bag contains far more cups of beverage than an equivalent-sized container of other brands. On a per cup basis, Dandy Blend costs as little as $0.11 per cup - less than you would pay for a cup of coffee or for most other substitutes.
Can pregnant or breastfeeding women drink Dandy Blend?
A: Dandelion is the beverage of choice in China and Japan for pregnancy. Dandelion Root has long been revered as a liver tonic and blood purifier, as well as a diuretic. Women using Dandelion Root during pregnancy have often surprised their doctors with the purity off their blood. After birth, it is very effective in increasing lactation.
Can Dandy Blend be used by diabetics and hypoglycemics?
A: Because Dandy blend is sweetened with fructose released from the dandelions and chicory, it may be suitable for both diabetics and hypoglycemics. Ask your doctor.
Barley and rye are listed as ingredients, but you say it has no gluten. How can this be?
A: Gluten is made up primarily of two proteins that are not water soluble. Dandy Blend is made by roasting the roots and grains and then steeping them in hot water to remove all the water-soluble components, draining off the water, and spray-drying it in special chambers. The fine brown powder that is life after the drying process is the Dandy Blend. gluten and any other substances that are not water soluble are left in the "grounds" to be tossed away.
What is the shelf life of Dandy Blend?
A: Even though the container is marked with a specific date, Dandy Blend has an almost indefinite shelf-life if kept in airtight containers and in a cool dry place.
Dandy Blend is a delightful, flavourful beverage made from water extracts of three roasted roots (Dandelion, Chicory, and Red Beet), and two roasted grains (barley and Rye), all of which have a long reputation for promoting good health.
Nothing else is added - no sweeteners, preservatives or artificlal flavours. Gluten from the grains has been removed through a natural process that uses no chemicals.
