Sunflower Seeds – Photo and Description from Vegan Pantry

Sunflower Seeds are a vegan pantry ingredient that we keep in a freezer to preserve freshness; we sprinkle them on salads and use them in other recipes.

Sunflower Seeds

The sunflower seeds in this photo are raw and machine hulled. We use them in baking and sprinkle them on our salads. We purchase our raw sunflower seeds from health food store, specialty supermarkets, and from cooperatives. Sunflower seeds are nearly 50% fat, and can go rancid if stored at room temperature, so we always store them in our freezer. See the nutritional chart below.
