Sunflower Seed 100 Gms
Sunflower seeds are technically the fruits of the sunflower plant. These seeds are harvested from the plant?s large flower head, which is more than 12 inches (30.5 cm) in diameter. A single sunflower head may contain up to 2,000 seeds.
There are two main types of sunflower crops. One type is grown for the seeds you eat, while the other ? which is the majority of sunflowers farmed ? is grown for the oil.
The sunflower seeds you eat are encased in inedible black-and-white striped shells, also called hulls. Those used for extracting sunflower oil have solid black shells.
Sunflower seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and a firm but tender texture. They?re often roasted to enhance the flavor, though you can also buy them raw.
Sunflower seeds are especially high in vitamin E and selenium.
