This review summarizes several important aspects for primary production and advanced processing of Helianthus tuberosus. At the same time, a series of use areas of inulin are pointed out, which also offer some prospects for maximizing the benefits and the economic potential of this resource. Inulin from Helianthus tuberosus has been studied from the point of view of agricultural production by addressing the cultivation, harvesting, storage and drying from the perspective of the inulin content, as well as from the point of view of the extraction and processing technologies for the economic use as food, food supplement or biomass, respectively as biofuel/bioethanol.
