About Dandy Blend

Dr. Peter Gail, a PH.D. ethnobotanist, has spent 47 years studying how various cultures use backyard weeds for food and medicine. His research revealed that dandelion is one of the most popular vegetables in the world, and is also a highly respected medicinal herb.

He founded Goosefoot Acres in 1988 to share his finding more broadly through his books, articles, and presentations. To make the health-promoting virtues of dandelion more readily available, he adapted a two-century-old Austrian herbalist's beverage into Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage with Dandelion, Which is the easiest way to incorporate dandelion into the diet.

Today, Goosefoot Acres manufactures and distributes Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage with Dandelions to health practitioners, health and natural food stores, and individuals.

    Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage with Dandelion - 100 Cups

    Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage Refreshing Cold, Delicious Hot. Dandy Blend instant dandelion beverage is the only herbal coffee substitute in the United States that features both the health benefits of dandelion and the rich, full-bodied flavor, smoothness and texture of real coffee. Many say that, because it lacks bitterness and acidity, it actually tastes better than coffee. GLUTEN FREE!

    A Most Versatile Beverage - One level teaspoon in eight ounces of water makes a delightful dandelion tea. A rounded teaspoon makes a beverage very similar to a full-bodied cup of instant coffee, and a heaping teaspoon to a full tablespoon makes an exquisite espresso-style beverage. It is so versatile that any type of gourmet coffee beverage made from it is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing, and it can be used in any recipe requiring coffee as an ingredient. Dandy Blend tastes great served iced or hot, and dissolves instantly in both hot or cold liquids. This delicious herbal coffee is especially good made with milk or dairy alternatives and your favorite flavorings. Those using it to wean themselves from coffee report that the transition is seamless– no headaches, upset stomachs, jitters or other symptoms of withdrawal.

    Dandy Blend is made from the totally water-soluble extracts of three roasted herb roots: dandelion, chicory and sugar beet- and two roasted grains – barley and rye. Nothing other than extracts of the three roasted roots and two roasted grains is in Dandy Blend. It is naturally sweetened by the fructose released from the breakdown of the storage starch inulin when the dandelion and chicory roots are roasted. Because all sweetening comes from substances in the roots, Dandy Blend is a low carbohydrate beverage, with only 1 gram of carbohydrate per cup. All ingredients have been chosen because of the health benefits historically associated with them. Every cup contains 630 mg. of dandelion and chicory extract. In Dandy Blend, you are getting the best of all worlds! Nothing compares with it in flavor, ease of use, and health-promoting effectiveness. Try it, you'll like it.

    • No additives or preservatives. Nothing artificial.
    • Totally water-soluble extracts of three roasted roots and two roasted grains.Nothing else.
    • No Gluten. All gluten from barley and rye is eliminated in the extracting process.
    • Sweetness comes from fructose that occurs naturally in roasted dandelion and chicory roots.
    • No pesticides
    • 630 mg dandelion / chicory extract per cup
    • Going from coffee to Dandy Blend is easy - there are no withdrawal symptoms.
    • May be suitable for people with diabetes. Ask your doctor.

    Q. How can I use DandyBlend to get off coffee?

    Many of our customers report that they have gone seamlessly from coffee to DandyBlend with no headaches or other withdrawal symptoms. However, if you wish, you can mix DandyBlend half and half with coffee at first, gradually increasing the DandyBlend until the coffee is eliminated. Other people drink coffee in the morning and DandyBlend the rest of the day.

    Q. How can DandyBlend be so sweet if the ingredients do not include sugar?

    Food produced by dandelion leaves is stored in the roots as the starch inulin, which is just a bunch of fructose molecules tied together by fragile bonds. Roasting breaks these bonds and releases the fructose. The fructose masks the bitterness, making the beverage more palatable.

    Q. DandyBlend contains barley and rye. So, how can it contain no detectable gluten?

    DandyBlend is made from extracts of barley and rye, not from barley and rye themselves. The roasted grains are mixed with the roasted roots, are ground, and then the water-soluble components (nutrients, minerals, biologically active substances) are leached out of the mash by hot water, just like you do when making tea. The liquid extract which is collected at the bottom is then spray dried to make the powder which we then call DandyBlend. Why no gluten? Gluten is not water soluble; it only dissolves in alcohol. Therefore, since no alcohol is used in the extracting process, all the gluten stays back in the mash. Tests done by Eliza-Tek Laboratories confirm the absence of detectable gluten in Dandy Blend.

    Q. I have allergies to dandelion flowers. Is it OK to drink Dandy Blend?

    Yes, there should be no problem. Dandy Blend is made from water soluble extracts of the roots of Dandelion. You are not even getting all the dandelion root--just that part that dissolves in water. That is why Dandy Blend it is totally free of gluten, pesticide residues, and other non-water soluble components that occur even in "organic" products.

    Q. How do you make DandyBlend water-soluble?

    DandyBlend is made only of extracts created by running hot water through the DandyBlend ingredients, and then spray drying the result and making it into powder. Add the water back (either hot or cold), and those extracts instantly rehydrate, just like freeze-dried vegetables or dried, powdered herbs.

    Q. Is Dandy Blend organic?

    The barley, rye and beets are commercially grown. The dandelion and chicory root, however, are grown on farms in Poland that produce medicinal herbs for the Eastern European market, where allopathic medicines are used far less than herbal ones. The fact that Dandy Blend is made only of water-soluble extracts of these five ingredients, with nothing else added in either the product or processing except water, means that only the goodness of these ingredients gets to you. You get none of the bad stuff. And, since dandelions are such effective "miners" of trace minerals from the undepleted subsoils into which the roots extend, you are getting more nutrients than you would get from commercially grown vegetables, probably as many as you would get from crops grown in "organic" soils.

    Q. Are there calories in Dandy Blend?

    A cup of Dandy Blend is like water to Weight Watchers point counters - 0 points! There are only 5 calories in a cup.

    Q. Doesn’t roasting destroy some of the essential goodness of dandelion?

    While some enzymes and vitamins might be affected, roasting at low temperatures has been the way herbalists have prepared dandelion root for centuries. Roasting releases beneficial aromatic products, converts inulin to fructose, and makes trace and major minerals more available.

    Q. What is the shelf life of DandyBlend?

    While DandyBlend officially has a shelf life of two years, in actuality, the compounds in the dandelion, chicory, the grains and the beetroot are so stable when kept in airtight containers that the shelf life is almost indefinite. It is just as invigorating after long storage as it is fresh.

    Suggested Use

    Dandy Blend is so versatile that, depending on how much powder you use, it can be everything from a pleasant, nutty roasted tea to rich, strong espresso. It also is 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 = tea-like beverage
    • 1 rounded tsp per 8 oz = rich, full bodied coffee
    • 1 heaping tsp to 1 tablespoon for an espresso strength beverage

    Warnings

    Dandy Blend is sensitive to moisture. This package MUST be resealed after each use.

      I recommend this product!
      Dandy Blend is a healing beverage that has brought a lot of good things into my life. I have been a coffee drinker for many years, but have recently been experiencing ill effects. When I first discovered it, I was blown away by how similar its flavor can be to coffee, and flavor is my biggest reason for drinking coffee. Also, the neutralizing and cleansing effects of the herbs diminished any headaches that I would normally get from not having my daily caffeine. When I drink Dandy Blend, I feel stabilized, neutralized, and ready to tackle the day. It has no ill effects, such as jitters, cold sweats, or crashing after a few hours. For some, there may be a slight laxative effect, but not nearly to the same degree as coffee. I hope that if you are a coffee addict as I once was, but are experiencing some problems from the caffeine, you will give Dandy Blend a try. I don't think you will be disappointed. Happy drinking!

      I got a bag of this that wasn't clumping. I'd heard people complain about it, but this bag was perfect. I took it out and put it in a qt mason jar. Dandy Blend is really catching on in the family. It's just so much like coffee, but good for you. I'm pregnant and so glad I found this!
