Kids might complain about eating their vegetables, but never about our nutritious Sunflower Seed Butter! We stone-grind 100% raw, organic sunflower seeds to smooth perfection so you can enjoy their nutty flavor in pesto, desserts, raw treats, creamy veggie dip, and more. If you’re feeling more hungry than creative, drizzle some Sunflower Seed Butter on toast or enjoy it straight out of the jar!
Tiny sunflower seeds pack a mighty nutritional punch. They’re high in vitamin B1, vitamin B5, manganese, magnesium, copper, selenium, phosphorus, and folate and also provide vitamin B3. Sunflower seeds contain more vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer, than any other nut or seed. Plus, plenty of protein and fiber gives you long-term energy without a crash.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our sunflower seeds. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful seed. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
We stone-grind our sunflower seeds slowly at low temperatures for the smoothest, most nutritious butter possible-- after all, that’s how nut butter was first made. Read more about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! Some archaeologists believe that sunflowers were domesticated even before corn. The Cherokee of the Blue Ridge Mountains (the mountains we’re named for) ate sunflower seeds, rich in unsaturated fat, to supplement lean meat
