ORGANIC DANDELION ROOT, c/s
Botanical Name: Taraxacum officinale
Country of Origin: Croatia or Bulgaria
Properties: Dandelion is an edible perennial herb with deeply cut leaves, yellow flowers, and has a thick taproot which is dark brown on the outside and white on the inside. It is native to most of Europe, Northern Africa, and Asia, but now has naturalized all over the world alongside roads and in lawns as a common weed. It‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös botanical name Taraxacum is derived from the Greek words 'taraxos' meaning disorder and 'akos' meaning remedy, referring to dandelion's myriad of healing properties.
Qualities: There are medical references as early as the 10th century for the use of taraxcacum by Arabian physicians as a remedy for liver and kidney complaints and dandelion root is valued for the same reasons to this day. Studies have shown that dandelion stimulates bile flow and has a mild diuretic effect. According to some nutritional analysis, dandelion root contains substantial levels of vitamins A, C, D, B-complex, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, choline, calcium, boron, and a high amount of potassium.
Common Use: Roasting the root gives it a coffee-like taste. To make dandelion root coffee, carefully roast the cut root in a pan or oven or use 1tsp of our roasted dandelion powder for 15 to 20 min, strain and add dairy or dairy alternatives, and sweeteners as desired.
For dandelion root tea, dissolve 1Tbsp of roasted dandelion root, Ì_åÇ_tsp of minced, fresh or dried ginger root, and one cardamom seed in two cups of water. Steep the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes, strain, add sweetener to taste, and enjoy! Dandelion root can also be blended into smoothies, mixed with juices, or sprinkled over cereal and oatmeal.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container.

The item came very quickly and it has a wonderful smokey and roasted flavor. I use it in my coffee alternatives and it sets my beverage off really nice! I will be definitely be buying this again once I run out. Thanks again!
Really love this product, especially for the price! I add it to hot chocolate for a really mocha like experience, or even some soups to enrich the flavour.

OMs new retail/sales area is great. The Dandelion powder is also very good. Roasty taste and mixes well --good quality. Despite being organic, Im always a little suspect of food from China. e.
