Sunflower seeds offer a high content of antioxidants such as vitamin E or phenolic acids (over 2000 mg/100g). They work to absorb free radicals in the body.
Lightly toasted without added fat, they are delicious with salads and soups. Sunflower seeds are ideal for baking breads. As a snack, in granola or granola bars, they are especially healthy.
