Anyone experimented with pressure cooking jerusalem artichokes to reduce the flatulence factore (inulin)?


1 Answer 1


As far as I can tell, cooking jerusalem artichokes in a pressure cooker won't help much if the cooking liquid is not acidic.

Inulin's chemical stability will decrease by heating in an acidic environment where pH <= 4. Simply cooking the jerusalem artichokes in an acidic liquid will help reducing the flatulence caused by inulin.
