Product Description

Where Do Sunflower Seeds Come From?

Sunflower seeds, although technically they should be called ‘sunflower kernels’ are one of the healthiest snacks you can find. This food is highly nutritious, low in calories and fats, high in fiber, and delicious to boot. The seeds can be used in a variety of ways and serve as the source of most common cooking oil on the planet.

Sunflower are a high-quality product, cultivated and processed without the use of any toxic chemicals. They are delicious, packed raw, and unsalted, so you can enjoy flavoring them exactly to your tastes.

Sunflower plants are named this way because their large flower heads, crowned with yellow petals, resemble the graphic representation of the Sun. Aside from this likeness, the plant itself is highly dependent on the light and would literally ‘turn its head’ towards the sun as it grown and matures.

However, your precious people might appreciate the culinary uses of sunflower seeds even more as they do make for an interesting ingredient in salads, desserts, baking goods, and snacks. You can even make sunflower flour, butter, and milk. When combined with other ingredients, you can use sunflower seeds to create some very healthy and original dishes.

Sunflower seeds, shelled or hulled, are safe for almost everyone to eat. Some people use sunflower seeds for sprouting, although their taste is quite peculiar.
Hulled Sunflower Seeds provide you with a nutritional boost and would contribute to any healthy diet plan, as they are a great source of fiber and some vitamins. They are also high in copper, phosphorus, iron, and zinc, elements essential for vegans and vegetarians who might not be getting enough of them from an exclusively plant-based diet.



 

Benefits of Sunflower Seeds

The reason why sunflower seeds are so fantastic is that they are as good for you as they are tasty.
Sunflower seeds benefits we can all appreciate are:

  • Sunflower seeds are one of the few plant-foods rich in selenium. Vegans and vegetarians may struggle with this as the best sources of selenium are fish and meat.
  • Rich in Vitamin E.
    If you take a look at the beauty products sold today, you’ll see that almost every facial cream and hair care product contains antioxidants, and quite a few of them include vitamin E. Sunflower seeds are a natural source of these beauty elements.
Shelled or hulled, sunflower seeds are great for everyone in the family.

Sunflower Seeds: Nutrition Data

Despite their deceptively small size and simplicity of form, sunflower seeds pack a nutritional punch.

This makes them a great food choice for any meal, but especially so for a short snack you need to recharge your batteries during the day.

The nutritional profile of sunflower seeds is highly versatile. In particular, they contain large quantities of:
  • Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol).
    Everyone today knows that vitamin E is an antioxidant, but few people realize just how special a position it holds. Sunflower seeds are an exceptional source of vitamin E.
  • Copper.
    An adult needs to consume 900 mcg of copper daily. You need to eat less than 2 ounces of sunflower kernels to get this dose of the essential mineral.
  • Magnesium.
  • 3.5 ounces of sunflower seeds can fulfill your daily need for magnesium.
  • Thiamin (Vitamin B1).
    Vitamin B1 is an element we have to ingest daily. Like all other B vitamins, thiamin affects the transformation of carbs into glucose.
  • Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6).
    Sunflower seeds contain 1.345 mg of this essential element in every 3.5 ounces.
  • Phosphorus. It’s an important agent and you should get about 600 mg of it daily.
  • Selenium.
     

What You Can Do with Raw Sunflower Seeds

One of the best things about Sunflower Seeds is that you can use them to do a great number of things. The kernels are completely free from nitrates, pesticides, and other dangerous toxins.

We sell our sunflower seeds unsalted so they are as healthy as can be, but you can flavor them with any kind of seasoning. For example, you can enjoy caramelized sunflower seeds. They are easy to make, you’ll just need to put a cup of kernels into a non-stick pan and heat them up for a few minutes. Then, add some brown sugar and wait until it melts. Now you have a deliciously sweet treat that you can snack on or sprinkle over desserts. Kids are sure to enjoy this addition to their morning porridge.

Sunflower seed bread is rather popular in most Western countries and in some parts of Asia. The kernels add to the flavor as well as enhance the nutritional value of the food. If you visit Germany, you would definitely encounter quite a few treats made with sunflower seed flour, and you definitely should try making them yourself as it can change your outlook on baking completely.

Sunflower milk has an interesting taste and a great nutritional value. You can also enjoy adding kernels to different types of nut milk to enrich their flavor. In general, you can include these seeds into almost every dish, including your morning smoothies and shakes for the gym.

We are happy to share our favorite sunflower seeds recipe for pesto.
Ingredients:

  • 3.5 oz garlic (wild)
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
Instructions:

You just need to process all the ingredients together in a blender and the pesto is ready to eat. Keep it in your refrigerator and you’d be able to use it for up to a week. You can also add some spices to enhance the flavor to your personal tastes.

Sunflower seeds butter is exceptionally delicious and makes for a great topping to any sandwich. You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy its taste and nutritional benefits.

How to Store Sunflower Seeds

Food to Live Sunflower Seeds are packed into an airtight ziplock bag.

Keeping the seeds dry is vitally important to prevent spoiling. Therefore, you have to store them in airtight containers if you choose to remove original packaging.

Unlike many other products, sunflower seeds don’t explicitly need to be refrigerated. However, storing the kernels in the fridge would increase their lifespan. Under normal circumstances, sunflower seeds can keep perfectly well at room temperature as long as the place is dry and outside of direct sunlight.
