Nutritional Benefits – Lightly Sea Salted Dry Roasted Sunflower Seed Kernels
Sunflower seeds contribute to your daily intake of vitamin E, a family of fat-soluble nutrients. Vitamin E helps protect your cells against free radicals, chemicals that oxidize and damage your proteins, cell membranes and DNA. This vitamin also promotes healthy circulation by helping you make red blood cells. An ounce of hulled sunflower seeds contains 10 milligrams of vitamin E, two-thirds of your recommended daily intake of the nutrient, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements.
Sunflower seeds also offer health benefits due to their vitamin B-1, or thiamine, content. Thiamine activates enzymes within your cells, helping to drive chemical reactions your cells need to function. Getting enough thiamine helps you derive energy from food and produce nucleic acids, the building blocks that make up your DNA. Men need 1.2 milligrams of thiamine each day, according to the Linus Pauling Institute, and women need 1.1 milligrams. Each ounce of hulled sunflower seeds provides 0.4 milligram of this nutrient.
Benefit your skin and hair by eating sunflower seeds, a source of copper. Eating an ounce of hulled sunflower seeds provides you with 512 micrograms of copper, more than half of the 900 micrograms you need daily, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Your body uses copper to make melanin, a pigment protein that helps give your skin and hair their color. Melanin molecules absorb ultraviolet radiation from the sun, protecting you from tissue damage as a result of sun exposure. Copper also supports your metabolism to help your cells produce energy.
Getting More Sunflower Seeds
Incorporating sunflower seeds into your diet can be as simple as sprinkling an ounce of the seeds over hot or cold cereal or over your salad. Get more creative by adding sunflower seeds to tuna, chicken, egg or chickpea salad sandwiches, or sprinkle the seeds into a wrap. Alternately, soak the seeds in water overnight, then blend into pureed soups to add nutrients and texture, or purchase our sunflower seed butter, an alternative to peanut butter.

STORAGE OF GERBS
We strongly recommend storing in an airtight container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity; thus we encourage you to not empty more than 1 pound of product at a time. Gerbs can be frozen too, but we do not recommend it, because the cell structures will change as the product thaws out!
Fantastic As I mentioned in my pumpkin seed review - I'm very happy to have found Gerbs as a source for allergy safe foods! My son, myself, and several other relatives all have varying allergies so its great to find a place that is free from all of them. Plus these are delicious!

Perfect! Salted just right!!! Crunchy and fresh tasting. A perfect, healthy, tasty snack. I'll buy them again and again. My husband is allergic to nuts and this is the first time we've been able to give him sunflower seeds that were not contaminated with nuts. Many thanks!!!

The lightly salted sunflower seeds are excellent. I have a very hard time finding any seeds that are gluten free and not processed where wheat products have been - hooray for Gerbs products!!
All Good Very good, right amount of salt, and did not aggravate my Celiac disease. Will buy more.
Yum! So good! And such a delight for my son with tree nut and peanut allergies.

Delicious AND Allergen Free My whole family loves these sunflower seeds! They're much crunchier than the seeds that you find at the grocery store and it's good to know that we don't have to worry about cross contact with other allergens. Thank you Gerbs!
Fresh and tasty! Our family uses these as a healthy snack on its own or in salads. We've ordered these several times from Gerbs and have always found them to be reliable. We come to Gerbs specifically, because food allergies are a concern in our home. We are grateful to have found these delicious seeds that are free from both peanuts and sesame.
Yum! Gerbs sunflower seeds are delicious! My kids love them as snack and I use them in everything from baking to a substitute for pine nuts in homemade pesto. Yum!
Delicious! They are just as they say lightly salted. These seeds are pretty plump. My hubby enjoy them and add them to foods and salads We also enjoy them by themselves. Would buy again
