Shelled Sunflower Seeds
The sunflower comes from the southwestern part of America, Peru, and Mexico. There’s evidence suggesting that sunflower was cultivated 3,000 years ago by North American Indians, who made oil from sunflower seeds, as well as bread from the flour they obtained by grinding the seeds. At the beginning of the 16th century, missionaries brought it from America to Europe, and in the 17th century, the cultivation of this plant already spread throughout Europe.
Sunflower seeds have a high nutritional value and are extremely rich in oil (30-50%). Also, only 25 grams of these seeds meet our daily needs for vitamin E.
In addition, sunflower seeds are almost as rich in proteins as steak, and they’re often used for making various delicious spreads.
