What is a sunchoke?
Wikipedia says that: “…a plant called sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple or topinambour, is a species of sunflower native to eastern North America, and found from eastern Canada and Maine west to North Dakota, and south to northern Florida and Texas. It is also cultivated widely across the temperate zone for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable.”
Inulin content in tubers of this kind of sunchoke is 3-3.5 times higher than the average documented in materials from international conferences. Such high inulin content was recorded only on one place of the Earth – Argentina!
Curative action of sunchoke flour is caused by high content of polysaccharides of inulin nature, pectin substances, B vitamins, vitamin C, valuable minor nutrient elements (silicon, iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, cuprum, manganese, nickel, phosphorus, etc.) in biogenic condition, which is the best one for its uptake. It also contains essential amino acids.
