Sunflower seeds are high in protein and Vitamin E and are one of the finest sources of B-complex group of vitamins. The seeds are incredibly rich sources of many essential minerals, as well as folic acid. Add to snacks, salads, and granola. We put the sunflower seeds in our Sweet and Salty Mix, and our Trail Mix.
