Many years ago, I used to really like fresh coffee - but I became aware that after I had drunk it, I had a vague stomach ache. It was not the sort of intense pain that had you reaching for pain relief - more of an uncomfortable and slightly unpleasant feeling.

I gave up caffeine whilst pregnant and was looking for a substitute, that was not decaffeinated coffee when I stumbled across Bambu in my local health food store, I have been hooked ever since and no longer drink caffeine. I recently bought a new 100g jar for £3.85 in my local health food store. Bambu is a coffee substitute developed by A Vogel a world renowned Swiss naturopath and has been around for over 60 years. It is made from organically grown chicory, figs, malted barley, wheat and acorns and is ground to a powdery consistency that smells creamy and slightly sweet. To make up the drink you add a teaspoon into a mug or cup and pour on hot ... Read the complete review
