Now I'm more confused than ever. I found some Organic Celery root powder online. It says it is from Apium graviolens (which is celery), whereas this article says it's in the celery family, but not exactly celery. So which is it?
I'm looking for a celery powder to use in soup broths and other recipes and I've tried celery seed powder, but the seeds never fully dissolve.
That's why I'm looking for celery, just in powder form. In my search, I asked the person who had the celery root powder, whether it tasted like celery. They said yes, but not as strong tasting as the stalks.
Will someone let me know the real deal about whether or not celery root is in fact celery root, and not just some close celery relative?
