Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower Seeds Sunflower seeds are an interesting crunchy snack that keeps you cracking for hours! Sunflower seeds are the best whole-food source of Vitamin E. They offer an ideal heart healthy profile, are high in protein, and naturally low in carbohydrate.

Sunflower seeds are a fantastic snack by themselves or as an ingredient, providing a wealth of nutrients, many of which are hard-to-get. Full of healthy unsaturated fats, protein, fiber, minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals, nutrition scientists are realizing that we should pay better attention to this power packed whole food.

As an interesting note, sunflower seeds are particularly noted to be the best whole food source of vitamin E, providing 84% of the daily value in just one ounce. A lower risk of death from stroke has been associated with vitamin E-rich foods; and since studies have shown that only 5% of men and 4% of women meet the RDA for vitamin E, choosing sunflower seeds to augment vitamin E intake is a wise and easy solution.
