About Organic Hulled Sunflower Seeds
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.
