Chicory looks like an ordinary plant in appearance. It is most commonly found as a wild plant on roadsides and pastures. Besides naturally occurring wild varieties, seed varieties are also cultivated. The leaves and roots of this plant have medicinal properties, and have therefore been long used in folk medicine. The roots are also appreciated nowadays as they contain inulin. After roasting, chicory roots have a very interesting taste and flavour, similar to natural coffee.
Grana is the Polish producer of chicory beverages. The traditions of roasting and processing this plant in our company reaches back to 1911.
The products in both their roasted and ground form as well as their currently most popular form on the
market - soluble chicory - are based on traditional recipes that have been perfected over the years.
