Sunflower seeds are the fruit of the beautiful sunflower plant. Sunflowers originated in Mexico and Peru and were one of the first plants cultivated in America. For more than 5,000 years, Native Americas have been harvesting sunflower seeds for both food and oil. With their crunchy texture and nutty flavor, sunflower seeds are delicious as a high protein snack and have become an American classic.
Sunflower seeds boast high levels of protein, antioxidants, minerals and linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid). They're an excellent source of vitamin E, dietary fiber, selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B1, vitamin B6 and folate.
Bob's Red Mill Sunflower Seeds make a great addition to breads, cakes, cookies and muffins. Try mixing sunflower seeds into your favorite tuna or chicken salad recipe or sprinkle onto hot and cold cereals or on top of yogurt. They are also a crunchy substitute for bacon bits and croutons on cooked vegetables and salads. You can also toast them to bring out their subtle flavor and extend their shelf life.
