Naturally high inulin content: ~ 50 %
We cut the whole tuber, dry it and then mill into different grades of fineness from powder, granulate and pieces over dices up to slices (types 10 to 40). All soluble as well as unsoluble components of the tubers are preserved and largy unaltered.
Naturally high inulin content: ~ 40 %
From the pressed juice of the Topinambur tuber we produce a golden-yellow juice concentrate of about 70° Brix. It is fully soluble in water. All soluble components of the tubers are preserved and largy unaltered, especially the soluble fiber inulin.
Naturally high inulin content: ~ 55 %
From our inulin-rich Topinambur juice concentrate ORGANIC we produce a fully solube Topinambur juice powder ORGANIC. Just like in the concentrate, all soluble components of the tubers are preserved and largy unaltered, especially inulin.
Topinambur-Inulin is naturally integrated in the plant structure. It can interact naturally with the other valuable ingredients of the tuber because it is not isolated.
When ingesting Topinambur, inulin passes the stomach and small intestine virtually intact. Only in the large intestine it develops its functional, prebiotic effect. There certain bifidobacteria and lactobacilli break it down into shorter molecules.
Our Topinambur products bring along the valuable properties of the plant. Many of these natural ingredients help to improve the intestinal flora and thus digestion.

The Topina Diät-Rohstoff GmbH, Kirchlinteln, is a family business today. It was founded in 1985 by Mr. University Professor i. R. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. Günter Bärwald. He researched the Jerusalem artichoke for many years at the Technical University (TU) Berlin and wrote the book "Gesund abnehmen mit Topinambur" [engl.: “Lose weight the healthy way with Topinambur“ (TRIAS publishing house, two now out of print editions (1999, 2008), ISBN 978-3-8304-3455-9). Remaining copies (in German language) can be requested. In addition, scientific essays and brochures were published. These were the result of research at the TU Berlin, graduate students and PhD students were involved. The research on Topinambur utilization was funded by the federal states of Hesse and Lower
Saxony through cooperation with the TU Berlin.
The Topina has been dedicated to the Topinambur (Helianthus tuberosus) since the 1980s and specializes in this raw material.
Exclusively organic quality
Topinambur tubers from our own agriculture in Lower Saxony
Gentle processing in Germany
This way, we can guarantee a traceability that can hardly be surpassed.
The tasty Topinambur came probably from Canada to Europe at the beginning of the 17th century. Today, its origian cannot be clarified exactly anymore. Here, in the first place, it helped the people in hardship and warfare over the worst hunger. Today, its valuable ingredients and amazing functionality are known.
The tubers for our Topinambur products originate entirely from our own organic agriculture in Northern Germany (Lower Saxonary), which means that we can ensure an extraordinarily gapless traceability. The controlled organic cultivation of our Topinambur is carried out according to EC REG. 834/2007 and is certified by the organic inspection body GfRS DE-ÖKO-039. In addition, we critically select our manufacturers, taking strictly into account the necessary certifications and paying regularly personal visits on-site. So we meet our high quality standard.
Topinambur has been known since ancient times for its positive influence on digestion. Unique to the Topinambur feinbitter is that it contains only the fruit sweetness of Topinambur - inulin and fructose. There is no added sugar.
Once a poor people's meal, which helped people in times of hartship and war over the worst hunger, Topinambur is experiencing a renaissance today. Meanwhile, we know about their amazing health benefits and valuable ingredients.
The book is only available in German language.
