Chicory (Cichorium intybus) is a biennial crop that is native to Europe, which is traditionally grown for use as a coffee substitute or chicory drink or for application in the sugar industry. The tap roots contain inulin - a fructose polymer - that is used mainly for food products. Chicory gets its pure white color as the chicory roots sprout in complete darkness.
