NOW Foods Real Food Roasted Sunflower Seeds Salted -- 16 oz
Sunflower oil must be unstable
It seemed like a great idea to buy salted sunflower kernels through the mail because the local bulk ingredient store had closed. When these arrived – two days after I placed the order, thank you, Vitacost! – they already tasted a bit rancid.
I don't think the problem is either Vitacost or an NOW Foods. I think it's just that sunflower oil doesn't taste fresh for very long after roasting.
In future, the only change I will make is to buy these seeds, still through Vitacost, raw. I can roast a week's worth at a time. I believe in NOW Foods sales raw sunflower kernels. These I do recommend.

No bad oils and salted with sea salt. Yum!

Roasted are our new favorite
The roasted and salted ones are the best. I toss them on salads while my daughter eats the sunflowers mixed with NOW's soybeans and pumpkin seeds as an afternoon snack.
