Sunflower seeds are rich in nutrients:
One serving of shelled sunflower seeds is usually an ounce, which is about 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons (one to two thumb-sized portions.)
They’re particularly high in healthy fat:
A serving delivers 14 grams of fat with a mix of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
A serving of the seeds also contains about 6 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber.
The seeds are also loaded with vitamins and minerals:
– including vitamin E (which has strong anti-inflammatory properties and may reduce risk of heart disease)
– folate (important for DNA synthesis)
– phosphorus (key for bone health)
– selenium (an antioxidant that protects against cell damage)
– manganese (which helps with bone production)
– copper (which helps with heart health and immune function)
– B6 (good for cognitive development and function)
– zinc (important for metabolism and immune function).
– Sunflower seeds are notably rich in magnesium, a mineral involved in more than 300 different bodily functions.
You can eat sunflower seeds raw or buy dry roasted seeds with or without the shell.
They also come in flavored varieties. Unsalted, raw kernels are the least processed versions of the seeds, but pick a seed that you’ll enjoy so that you’ll actually eat them. Eat them on their own or sprinkle them on oatmeal, yogurt, soups and salads.
Just remember they’re a high-fat food. Portion control is key so that you reap the health benefits while avoiding excess calories.
And since sunflower seeds have a good amount of fat, they can go rancid, so make sure to store them in an airtight container.
