Sunflower seeds contain almost 23% primary protein, and all the essential amino acids are well supplied. Sunflower seeds have a 50% fat content of which 30% is the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid. The mono-unsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid, accounts for some 10% of the total fat content.

The Vitamin E content of Sunflower Seeds is very high – which is nature’s way of countering free radical production and ensuring that the fats in sunflower seeds do not turn rancid.

Sunflower seeds are a good source of the minerals calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron, and are one of the prime suppliers of B-group vitamins.

Provided they are used in moderation, it is safe to use sunflower seeds on a regular basis.
