Anyone know if yacon generally has more inulin than sunchoke?

Everyone here is complaining and passing major wind. Things were going well with the sunchokes.

Article has a table. Sunchoke, Chicory and Dandelion all run in the teens, while yacon runs from 3 to nineteen. Looks like Camas is the champ, running from 12 to 22. I am presuming that the chart is reporting percentages, although I don't see it indicated in either the legend or the text.
