dc.description.abstract“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, is one of the most famous phrases attributed to Hippocrates, the father of medicine. Scientific research on superfoods has increased in the last six years. These foods have nutritional and pharmacological properties, such that they can help to fight against diseases and poor nutritional status. Helianthus tuberosus L., or Jerusalem artichoke, appears to be a superfood that provides benefits to human health at the level of the digestive, gastrointestinal, and dermatological systems, being fit for patients with diabetes mellitus due to its high content of inulin and use in an optimal hypocaloric diet due to its low carbohydrate content. In fact, 5 to 15 g per day is beneficial, with evidence of a prebiotic effect. Unfortunately, its consumption and cultivation are not well known worldwide. For this reason, the present review describes the benefits of H. tuberosus in human health to promote knowledge about its nutritional benefits. © 2022 by the authors.es_ES
