Barlico, a healthy Coffee Substitute

Are you a coffee addict? Chances are, you said yes as more than half of the Filipino population is addicted to caffeine and instant coffee is the cheapest fix for this addiction. However, instant coffee is not the healthiest thing you can drink on a daily basis. A good alternative would be Barlico.


Barley is one of the most widely consumed cereal grains in the world. It has high fiber content, loads of vitamins and minerals as well as anti-oxidants that help with health issues concerning the heart and diabetes. Chicory, another main component of the drink, is a close relative of the lettuce and cabbage, has woody and fibrous roots that have a similar flavor as coffee when roasted and brewed. This is actually what gives the drink a coffee like taste but at the same time, it aids the gall bladder and liver function, improves bone health and processes effective absorption of the calcium in the body.


Barlic has 4 different variants: Black, Cappuccino, Chocolate, and Coffee Granules. You can enjoy Barlico’s line of barley and chicory instant mixes as their plant based ingredients that are rich in fiber, potassium, folate, and Vitamin B have been scientifically proven to help lower bad cholesterol, promote bone health, cleanse the digestive system, improve kidney function, and aid in urinary and reproductive health.

The kick you get from Barlico is not from caffeine but from the natural and plant based sources. Barlico will hit the supermarkets nationwide starting September 2017. Right now, you can order it through Facebook and Instagram.
