NOW Foods Roasted Sunflower Seeds Unsalted Description
- Pure. Natural. Real.
- Good Source of Fiber and Vitamin E
- Hulled For Great Taste
- Fresh, Wholesome and Tasty
The Sunflower is one of the largest flowers in the world. And while its tiny seeds aren’t nearly as big, they make up for it by being big on nutrition! As with many nuts and seeds, Sunflower Seeds are a good source of fiber, and they offer a diverse profile of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E and magnesium.
NOW Real Food™ Sunflower Seeds can be eaten by the handful or used in recipes. They make an excellent addition to breads, cookies, salads and more.
Fresher ingredients simply taste better, which is why this product is packaged using NOW Fresh Fill Technology, a natural blend of carbon dioxide and nitrogen that displaces oxygen in the bag to maximize flavor and freshness.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food™ has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We’re independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.
