Looking for a health-promoting snack? Enjoy a handful of mild nutty tasting sunflower seeds to take care of your hunger, while also enhancing your health by supplying significant amounts of vitaminE, magnesium and selenium. Sunflower seeds are the gift of the beautiful sunflower that has rays of petals emanating from its bright yellow, seed-studded center. The sunflower's Latin scientific name, Helianthus annuus, reflects its solar appearance since helios is the Greek word for sun, and anthos is the Greek word for flower. A very nutritious snack, they are great for sprinkling in salads, stir-fries, muesli or breakfast cereals. A delightful ingredient for cooking, especially cakes, muffins and biscuits. Toasted them will bring out their flavour. These sunflower seeds are raw and have not been heat treated.
