The highly nutritious hulled seeds of organic sunflowersAverage Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
Sunflowers were once cultivated by the North Americans, who believed in using them well! They ate the seeds and extracted the oil, used the petals for dye and the leaves as an animal fodder.
Sunflower seeds are rich in B-Complex vitamins, many minerals, protein and vitamin E. The high nutritional value is particularly due to the ability of the flower heads to face the sun and so absorb the maximum amount of sunshine.
Eat as a snack, sunflower seeds have a mild nutty flavour and and are packed full of energy and nutrional value. Sprinkle onto hot or cold breakfast cereal or muesli, use to garnish a green salads, great in a stir fry. Add a handful to a fruit smoothie for added nutrition. Combine sunflower seeds with pine nuts when making a pesto sauce. Try them toasted, it really brings out the flavour. They also make a great addition to home made bread, muffins or cookies.

A handful of sunflower seeds are a healthy instant snack, and they are also fab toasted. I put them in a dry frying pan and toss every now and again over a medium heat. Once they turn a golden brown, remove them and sprinkle over a small amount of soy sauce. Once cooled, they can be kept in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Great added to short grain brown rice with a little olive oil. Reviewer's Name:

Contain large amounts of protein, B vitamins, iron, zinc, potassium and selenium, and heaps of vitamin E. Good sprinkled on salads, as well as savoury meat and vegetables dishes. Mix with other nuts and seeds for healthy snacking and add to breakfast muesli.Reviewer's Name:

Soak overnight in pure water and drain before use to release even more nutrients. To me this also improves texture and taste and are lovely to sprinkle into salads or to add to stir-fries. Great value at this price. Reviewer's Name:
