Ingredients: Sunflower Seeds

Our bulk sunflower seeds are edible seeds of the sunflower plant (Helianthus annuus). They are harvested from the head of the sunflower plant, which measures more than 12 inches in diameter and can contain up to 2,000 seeds. The seeds are encased in a gray or black shell, often removed before consumption.

Sunflower seeds are a popular snack with uses in cooking and baking. In fact, many of our customers want to make sunflower butter in their kitchen. They can be eaten raw or roasted and salted. They commonly find use in salads, trail mixes, granola bars, and other dishes. Additionally, oil goes through an extraction process from sunflower seeds and is commonly sold as a salad dressing.

What Is A Sunflower?

This small, beige-colored kernel has a mild, nutty flavor and a chewy texture. The sunflower is native to North and Central America and has been around for thousands of years. Ultimately, sunflowers held deep cultural and spiritual significance for many indigenous tribes. Specifically, symbolizing vitality, fertility, and connection to the sun.

The arrival of European explorers in the Americas in the 16th century introduced sunflowers to the rest of the world. Fascinated by the plant’s beauty and utility, explorers brought sunflower seeds back to Europe. Actually, these seeds quickly gained popularity as a valuable source of oil. Currently, Ukraine is the number one source of sunflower seeds with Russia being the second biggest supplier.
