I would not buy a bag of Jerusalem Artichoke flour for forty dollars.  :(  But thank you for posting a source!  I keep looking for jerusalem artichoke flour pasta, but the ones at WF also have wheat in the ingredients so...no can do.

Holy Wow! TONS of benefits. I would consider just buying the flour to use as a supplement stirred in water- and drink that everyday. When I think of it as a supplement and not a food, then $40 a pound is very inexpensive considering all the major benefits!

Thanks Chloe!

all these I list below might be worth investigating if really 100%

Special Foods in Virginia might still be producing

sweet potato flour, ask if they still have the AF

Brownville Mills, think theirs has wheat added, not sure


Barry's Farm. Theirs is the Jerusalem type

Hi Lola,

I already checked Rossi Pasta 2 weeks ago. It is not 100%  :(

Thanks for sharing!

Rossi lists their pasta as "artichoke flour" but the flour Sooks33 lists is Jerusalem artichoke flour.  I presume there is a difference?  Artichoke flour pasta on my swami is a diamond.  I'm not sure which one is meant by that.  It doesn't matter, as artichokes and Jerusalem artichoke are all diamonds.  Just wondering, though.   ??)

Thanks for the links, Lola.

In case you find it do not buy a lot it does not taste very good.

If you just want to take it as a supplement, here is Jerusalem artichoke powder. It's only $8 for 1/2 pound.

And in liquid form as a sweetener.

I should have known a diamond pasta sounded too good to be true!   ;)  Sounds like a better idea to use Jerusalem artichoke as a supplement, as suggested above.

Jerusalem artichokes are wonderful fresh. I use them in place of potatoes in soups and stews. Apparently they are fairly easy to grow, but should be grown in containers, as they are very prolific.

How do they taste? And what do they look like and how would I find one in a store?

DD2 loves the taste  (or rather, the non-taste) of rutabegas in soups, but if I use turnips instead, she won't eat more than one piece. Both are superfoods for me, but I buy the kind she'll eat so I can make food for both of us.

Jerusalem artichoke (aka sunchoke). To me they have a nutty, earthy flavor, almost akin to a mushroom...

Just found this http://www.johnnyseeds.com/c-31-jerusalem-artichoke.aspx I think I'll order some.

Jerusalem Artichoke

Perennial sunflower grown for its potato-like tubers. Tender with a sweet, nutty flavor, enjoyed raw or cooked. Directly after harvest, the carbohydrates are in the form of inulin and are good for dieters and diabetics. One of our few indigenous vegetables, used by Native Americans in the northern U.S. and Canada. Besides its unique food value, the tall 6-8' plants make an attractive windbreak, and the masses of lovely 4" daisy-like flowers have a chocolate scent. We do not ship Jerusalem Artichokes outside the United States.

I actually have artichokes growing, this is their second season along with the asparagus (which takes three years before a good harvest), anyway artichokes don't do very well where the humidity is high. Like the weather in Jerusalem they enjoy a hot dry climate. 4 plant that take up a lot of room and you and a friend will be eating 2 every 3 days during harvest time. approx. 29 between eating and giving away with at least half a dozen left to flower and go to seed.

They will love it here then! I've only had 15minutes of rain in the last six weeks! Plus I have 2.5 acres they can go wild on.

I have a daughter that will help eat them  ;D
