Description

Organic Sunflower Seeds are high in vitamin E.

Organic sunflower seeds start as the centre of the beautiful, bright yellow sunflower.  As the head of the flower ages, the seeds in the centre dry and the hulls are removed to reveal soft, tasty sunflower seeds.  One 30g serving of these tasty seeds offers 83% of your vitamin E requirements for the day.

Sunflower seeds are native to North America and have been consumed for over 5000 years by Native Americans who use them for oil, food and also dyes.  Spanish explorers brought the sunflower back to Spain and it is now grown readily across the world.  Sunflower seeds are versatile in sweet and savoury recipes and full of flavour.

These seeds are nutritionally dense with a wide range of vitamins and minerals that are often hard to obtain such as vitamin E and zinc which protect the body from oxidative stress.  A 30g serving of sunflower seeds is high in Protein, fibre, Thiamin (B1), Folate, Vitamin E, Copper and a source of Niacin (B3), Vitamin (B6), Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Zinc and Selenium.

Try adding them to muesli mixes, porridge toppings and smoothie mixes for added nutrition and flavour.

Family Tip:

  1. We snack on organic sunflower seeds straight from the jar or grind them up and sprinkle them on yoghurt.
  2. We also enjoy lightly toasting them with Himalayan pink salt and using them as a garnish or tasty snack.
  3. If you make your own muesli then these are a great addition.
