Frequently Asked Questions

To be safe, you should check with your health practitioner. That being said, the official FDA-sanctioned answer is that the use of dandelion in the amounts commonly found in food is generally considered safe during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Our other two ingredients, chicory and carob are on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)  list as well. 


If you have a complicated pregnancy, maybe best to wait. If your baby has a very sensitive digestive system, maybe best to wait. If you feel unsure…maybe best to wait!

And if the fact that the FDA has determined safety is sufficient information for you to make your decision, we wholeheartedly support you in that choice! 🤗
