Just like other nuts, organic sunflower seeds are also a very good source of proteins with high quality amino acids such as tryptophan that are essential for growth, especially in children. Just 100g of seeds provide about 21g of protein (37% of daily recommended values). Good source of fibre, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E and magnesium. Sunflower seeds also contain health benefitting poly-phenol compounds such as chlorogenic acid, quinic acid, and caffeic acids. These compounds are natural anti-oxidants which help remove harmful oxidant molecules from the body. Further chlorogenic acid helps reduce blood sugar levels by limiting glycogen breakdown in the liver.
Can be eaten on its own as a snack or used in recipes for breads, cookies, salads and sauces.
