Reports have further established that some plants, such as Ananas comosus (pineapple), Momordica charantia (bitter gourd), Azadirachta indica (neem), Eucalyptus staigeriana, and Cichorium
intybus (chicory), when added to pig rations, reduce the boar taint [2, 15].
Considering the reported antimicrobial activity in other species of Cichorium
, the main aim of the present study was to investigate the antimicrobial potential of different parts of Egyptian chicory, i.e., leaves, roots, and seeds using various aqueous and organic solvents.
The following species were analyzed: green leaf lettuce varieties "Milena" (LM) and "Vanda" (LV) and iceberg lettuce (IL) (Lactuca sativa L.), common chicory (CC) (Cichorium
intybus), escarole (ES) (Cichorium
endivia), collard greens (CG) (Brassica oleracea L.), and parsley (PA) (Petroselinum crispum).
Herbaceous broad-leaved species such as chicory (Cichorium
intybus L.), forage brassica (Brassica napus L.) and plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.) have been evaluated for use as forages with varying degrees of success in Australia and the U.S.
Linear to obovate Grayish pale to brown Cichorium
intybus, a perennial herbaceous plant of the Asteraceae family, has been used for ages as livestock forage in various parts of the world.
