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 (polyunsaturated 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.

  1. I buy this every few months. Always fine. Good product. I add them to most foods. They are just as described. Don’t ask me about the “nutritional” issues. I just like them.

  2. This is my second purchase from seller Food to Live and I will not hesitate to order from them again. The sunflower seeds are fresh and meaty and exactly as I had expected. Good seller, good product!

  3. I use a lot of sunflower seeds – the cost of these was reasonable; the size was the amount needed; the sunflower seeds were in excellent condition.

  4. We buy these for our wildlife friends (birds and squirrels), who love them. I do occasionally eat some, and they are very good. We have about 175 birds of various species that visit our yard, and fox and gray squirrels. They are very entertaining and we like to give them quality seeds and nuts that are healthy for them.

  5. Sunflower seeds are a good source of alpha tocopherol, but they are also high in Ω-6 fatty acids (not good). So I sprout them for two days, which lowers the fat content, but may also keep the vitamin E. Supplementation may not be a good idea:

    I have always bought my seeds locally, but lately they have not been good for sprouting. I am happy to report that the SF seeds featured here sprout wonderfully.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  17. 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.
