But what is chicory root?

Chicory is a plant grown throughout Europe. Its roots are used to make caffeine-free coffee substitute, while its leaves make a great salad. Chicory root is made up of plenty of dietary fiber - inulin and smaller sugar chains of inulin - that we use in our recipe. While this fiber is technically a type of sugar and therefore has a sweet taste, it behaves differently as it has little to no impact on blood sugar levels. Instead, it acts as a prebiotic fiber that feeds your gut bacteria, for better digestion.

More fiber in your diet!

Recently, a number of nutritionists and public health advocates publicly called to increase one’s daily fiber intake from 25 to 30g by eating more fiber-rich foods. And food manufacturers picked it up, with 60% more product launches with a ‘high/source of fiber’ claim between 2014 and 2018 (source: Innova). So, why not indulging in your favorite chocolate treat while increasing your fiber intake?
