Herbal coffee is brewed from herbs that have been roasted and ground to brew and taste like coffee. Most people are aware that there is no “milk" in soy milk, and there is no “burger" in a veggie burger. However, many people don’t remember that there is no “tea" in herbal tea. Tea always used to refer to Camelia sinensis, the plant that has been grown for centuries to produce black tea. But now we have green tea, red tea, white tea, and herbal tea. The term “tea" has become a generic term for leaves, bark, flowers, roots and spices that are brewed in hot water like true tea. Teeccino hopes that one day people will also understand “herbal coffee" as easily as they now understand soy milk!How do I quit coffee?
Over a two week period, start blending Teeccino with your coffee. Begin with 3/4 coffee, and 1/4 Teeccino and gradually increase the amount of Teeccino until you are drinking 100% Teeccino. Herbal tonics and nutritional supplements can also aid you in restoring your own natural energy supply. Will Teeccino give me an energy boost?
Many people experience an energy lift from drinking Teeccino. The nutrients in Teeccino are in liquid form, making them very bio-available and quickly absorbed. Teeccino replenishes potassium, an electrolyte mineral that stimulates nerve impulses, helps oxygenate the brain, and enhances athletic performance. The potassium in Teeccino is completely natural, coming from the ingredients themselves. Sports drinks rely on added potassium to achieve the same effect, but Teeccino’s natural potassium is at an even higher per serving quantity than sports drinks. Thus many people find Teeccino makes a re-energizing drink after workouts. Another factor that may explain why people experience an energy lift from Teeccino is the pinitol t:" ":ity of their muscles to use glycogen. What makes Teeccino's flavors natural?
Natural flavors are made from flavoring constituents that are extracted from natural ingredients like fruits, spices, herbs and even coffee. Teeccino flavors do not contain any constituents from meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, or edible yeast. Teeccino does not allow any monosodium glutamate, propylene glycol, or preservatives in its flavors.Is there caffeine in the natural coffee flavor in Teeccino?
Flavor houses extract the flavor components from all natural ingredients in order to create natural flavors. In the case of Hazelnut flavor, the flavor is extracted from a hazelnut paste and other nut pastes. In the case of coffee flavor, the components of coffee flavor are extracted from a number of ingredients that include both coffee, chicory and even, believe it not, garlic! Who would imagine that coffee and garlic share the same flavor component? The expertise of flavor chemists allows them to use natural ingredients to derive flavors without getting all the components of each source. Thus it is possible to produce coffee flavor without caffeine, which in any case doesn’t contribute to the flavor of coffee. Watch out though for coffee flavored ice cream, yogurt, etc. because these foods usually contain a coffee concentrate or even ground coffee beans that do have caffeine. I make sure that the flavors we use are completely natural and don't contain harmful ingredients like propylene glycol, a petroleum product that is added to many food and skin care products, or MSG, preservatives, etc.Does Teeccino buy fair trade ingredients?
Most of Teeccino's ingredients are grown in Europe & the USA by first world farmers. Teeccino sources organic chicory in India and wild-crafted ramon nuts in Guatemala, which allows us to work in developing countries with small family farmers and rainforest villages. These ingredients create new trade that provides more economic opportunities in regions where sources of income are scarce. Fair trade is very important for commodity-driven products where exploitation is common. Creating new trade provides more ways to raise the quality of life for rural communities. By drinking Teeccino, you join Teeccino in supporting families devoted to organic values in both first world and developing countries.Is Teeccino good for people with acid reflux, GERD & IBS?
Yes! Teeccino has many customers who drink Teeccino because they gave up coffee after being diagnosed with acid reflux and/or inflammatory bowel disease like IBS. Coffee, both caffeinated and decaffeinated, is highly acidic and stimulates an increase in gastric acids. Coffee is also shown to speed up the process of gastric emptying, which may lead to acidic contents passing into the small intestine too soon. This could injure the intestinal tissue causing very unpleasant symptoms. Teeccino’s potassium content will help correct symptoms of metabolic acidity. Inulin, a soluble fiber in Teeccino that comes from chicory root, supports a healthy population of beneficial microflora in both the gut and the colon. If you suffer from digestive disorders, Teeccino highly recommends weaning yourself off of coffee using the Teeccino 2 week program. Also, taking probiotics when you first start drinking Teeccino will help establish the good bacteria for the inulin to support. Does Teeccino have an acidic or alkaline effect in the body?
Teeccino has an alkaline effect on the system due to several reasons. First, its high content of potassium, an alkaline mineral, helps neutralize acidity and restore an alkaline balance. Second, most of the ingredients in Teeccino like the chicory, almonds:" ":ohydrates become more easily digestible and thus less acidifying. Drinking Teeccino helps you reduce acidity in your body in two ways. First, it provides the alkaline mineral, potassium, which your body uses to balance the acidity in your diet. Second, the inulin from the chicory in Teeccino supports a population of beneficial microflora that enhances your digestion and increases the bio-availability of minerals. Thus Teeccino gives you a better ability to absorb your alkaline minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, cobalt, and copper that a healthy person needs to maintain the body’s natural alkaline balance.Does Teeccino need to be refrigerated like coffee?
NO! Teeccino won't go stale like coffee because it doesn't have coffee oils which go rancid if unrefrigerated. Just replace the plastic cap on your can of Teeccino and it will last for at least two years. Brewed Teeccino can last up to five days in your refrigerator making it easy to drink iced Teeccino in the summer.Is Teeccino GMO Free?
Teeccino is completely GMO free. Fortunately, Monsanto and others haven’t seen fit to tinker with the genetic composition of most of the ingredients that are used in Teeccino. Teeccino is vigilant however with all our suppliers requesting a guarantee that the ingredients they supply do not contain GMOs. There is some GMO experimentation with barley to make it resistant to a fungus called barley scab, but fortunately it is still restricted to the laboratory and has not been successful so far!Are the ingredients in Teeccino organic?
