Raw sunflower seeds have a mild nutty flavor and firm and tender texture giving them a light crunch. They contain vitamins such as Thiamin, Vitamin B and Folacin. A good source of calcium and packed with fiber, these seeds are also high in protein and good, healthy fats. Perfect for toppings on a salad or tossed in muffins. Mount Hope’s sunflower seeds, cultivated from the tall, yellow golden sunflower, are naturally gluten-free and unsalted making them a great addition to any recipe.
Sunflower seeds aren’t just for the birds! Humans have enjoyed these ¼ inch long edible seeds, known as the sunflower’s fruit, for thousands of years. The sunflower, first domesticated by Native Americans around 1000 BC. is a native North American plant. The seeds grow in a colorful variety of red, black, white and black/white striped on one single flower.
