About Organic Sunflower Seeds Hulled

Organic Sunflower Kernels, all the tastiness of sunflower seeds without the shells. Perfect for baking, snacking on, throwing in salads on sandwiches, or try dry-frying a handful with a little tamari, yum!

Just a handful of sunflower kernels a day provides much of the recommended level of phenolic antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and protein. Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E (a brilliant antioxidant), phytosterols (believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease the risk of certain cancers) and magnesium. In addition, sunflower seeds are a good source of manganese, copper, selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B1, vitamin B6 and folate.

Sunflower Seeds are from the bright yellow centre of a sunflower. The seeds are grey/green or black and occasionally have striped hulls. They are an excellent source of polyunsaturated oil and are often pressed to produce sunflower oil. Used for thousands of years by Native Americans, sunflower seeds were used as an oil and food source, but also the rest of the sunflower for dyeing. The leading commercial producers include Peru, Argentina, China, France and Spain.

The appearance of sunflower seeds can vary greatly from year to year depending on climatic conditions during the growing and harvesting season. Please note that when cooked in an alkaline medium (e.g.. Soda bread), sunflower seeds can turn green. This is a natural colour change caused by the presence of chlorogenic acid in the seeds. Chlorogenic acid helps reduce blood sugar levels by limiting glycogen breakdown in the liver.

These shelled sunflower seeds are always fresh, I buy in small amounts so they stay that way! Oddly brilliant with scrambled eggs and essential for making a green salad interesting.

I tried frying these sunflower seeds with tamari and was absolutely delighted with the tasty result. Thank you for the suggestion.

By Ian Masters on 06/08/2014

I tried the risotto recipe and these added a lovely crunch. I plan to try adding sunflower seeds to my vegetable curry next and see how that works.

Raw Vegan Alkalising Green Soup Recipe

Summary: This is a basic raw vegan green soup that you can customise to your very own personal preference. I like to use spinach as my greens, but feel free to substitute weeds or your favourite greens if you wish. You can use more or less of tomato / cucumber / celery if you wish, add other vegetables like yellow bell pepper or courgette ; different seeds or even seed butter (nuts / nut butter for a non nut-free soup). The Spirulina is packed with nutrition : vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, beta-carotene, antioxidants and even essential fatty acids ! And because it is so rich in Chlorophyll, it is a great superfood to add to your diets if you don't consistently eat (or drink) your greens. But the soup is absolutely delicious without it too. Great for a light and refreshing lunch or snack, or as a starter. And you will be surprised, but many children actually love it !
