The flower petals are used in salads[177]. Root - cooked and used as a vegetable[183]. A bitter flavour[200]. A sweet extract of the tuber, called 'dacopa', is used as a beverage or as a flavouring. It is mixed with hot or cold water and sprinkled on ice cream. Its naturally sweet mellow taste is said to combine the characteristics of coffee, tea and chocolate[183]. The root is rich in the starch inulin. Whilst not absorbed by the body, this starch can be converted into fructose, a sweetening substance suitable for diabetics to use[141, 171].  
An orange dye is obtained from the flowers and seed heads[168, 169].

2015april_sk04/04 : Dahlia pinnata Cav. : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (14)
This winter I bought a few saplings. Recorded photographs time to time to observe changes in growth. First, leaves looked like simple ones, as the plant grew it grew pinnate.
While other members in this group prefer to use the term Dahlia species/cultivar I think, based on http://plantillustrations.org/species.php?id_species=317899, it is cultivar(s) Dahlia pinnata Cav.
Please, tell me if you disagree.
