Cichorium intybus, commonly known as chicory, is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the dandelion family. This plant is cultivated for its leaves, which are typically used in salads, and roots, which are used as a coffee substitute and food additive. Chicory root is especially important as a source of inulin, a starch that cannot be digested by humans but is ideal for diabetics. The leaves are often blanched to reduce bitterness and are commonly used in winter salads. The root can be boiled and used as a vegetable or roasted to add flavor to stouts. Chicory is also grown as a forage crop for livestock. Common chicory is found in Europe and has become naturalized in North America, China, and Australia. With its many culinary and medicinal uses, chicory is a versatile and valuable addition to any garden or kitchen.
