Midwest Wilderness Connections Eco-brief: Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthus tuberosa)

Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosa) is a native prairie sunflower that has a root system that forms underground tubers. Similar to potatoes, these tubers are safe places for the plant to store carbohydrates. The tubers have been harvested and consumed by Native Americans. The carbs in these tubers don't require digestion via insulin, making them a potential option for diabetics.
