Product Description

Sunflower oil is the most popular cooking oil in the world, and it’s really a good thing because sunflower seeds are highly nutritious and very good for your health in general. Nowadays, sunflowers are cultivated in a great number of countries. However, they originated from the Middle American region, and were brought to Europe by explorers.

Health Benefits

Sunflower seeds can be used in a variety of recipes, but you can eat them plain as well. They make a good snack because of the numerous health benefits they offer.

  • They lower your cholesterol levels.
    These seeds are full of linoleic acid (poly-unsaturated fatty acid) and oleic acid (mono-unsaturated fatty acid). These essential fatty acids lower the level of “bad” LDL cholesterol, which means that they cleanse your arteries. This reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke.
  • They are rich in proteins.
    Proteins are essential nutrients because our bodies use them as “building blocks” for cells. Meat is the richest food source of protein, so vegetarians often run a risk of not getting enough of this particular nutrient. Therefore, it’s essential to include seeds into your diet if you don’t eat dairy products and meat regularly.
  • They are great antioxidants.
    Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E, as well as chlorogenic, caffeic, and quinic acids. All these elements are potent antioxidants, so they protect your body from the damage dealt by free radicals.
  • They are one of the best sources of B-complex vitamins.
    B vitamins play an essential part in a great number of processes within your body. They are extremely important for the neurological system and reduce the risk of birth defects in babies (folate).
  • They provide you with a large dose of all essential minerals.
    Sunflower seeds contain all essential minerals in almost equal measure. Eating 100 grams of them will allow you to get almost 100% of the required daily dose of magnesium, manganese, iron, phosphorus, and selenium. Their copper content is double of the required daily dose.

    Order arrived in condition promised and well before the estimated date. Due to health reasons, had to convert to an all natural no-meat, no-vegetables, no-soy, no-dairy diet and these were a perfect match. Would order again if needed.

    This big bag of sunflower seeds arrived on time and in excellent condition. Having bought bulk seed from other vendors and sources in the past, I was trying to find a source that had a fresher product. Others have been rock hard stale. These were fresher, more easily chewed. I would highly recommend this product and vendor to others.

    Yummy, Fresh, Tasty. I grind it up and use it in my bread for added flavor. But, it makes a great snack too. I use it raw.

    Our local supplier for raw sunflower seed kernels went out of business and I was thrilled to find out I could get them through this site. I use them when I make suet patties for the birds and the birds love them.

    Good clean seeds. Price is unbeatable. Even less expensive than our famous Trader Joe’s. I just ordered their pumpkin seeds and not at all disappointed.

Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites

Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites

Ingredients:

  • 14 Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes – http://bit.ly/1Gn0is1
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted salted peanuts (or any type of peanut, salted or unsalted – your preference)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds – http://bit.ly/1Hf6ehY
    optional for rolling: cocoa powder, shredded coconut, crushed nuts, mini chocolate chips


Directions:

First, make sure your dates are soft. You may soak them in warm water (and drain them) for 15 minutes before putting into the food processor or blender. OR you may chop them up into very small pieces so they blend easily.

Put all of your ingredients into the blender or food processor, in the order listed, and blend for 4-5 minutes or until a thick oily “dough” ball is formed. The dough will be oily from the seeds and nuts. You will have to scrape down the sides of the blender/food processor a few times to get all of the dry ingredients to the bottom. Once a dough is formed, scoop the dough (about 1 Tablespoon each) and roll into a smooth ball with your hands.

If rolling into cocoa powder, coconut, etc: spread rolling ingredients onto a plate and roll the moist dough ball around to fully cover. Store bites in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Enjoy it!
