My new favorite snack food is sunflower seeds, but I know very little about them. I have always assumed that seeds are good for you, but to be honest, I am not really sure about any nutritional content a handful of these may have.

Does anyone else have any idea?

bubble. sunflower seeds are low in cholesterol and sodium and are rich in fiber, minerals (especially magnesium) and vitamin E. In addition, sunflower seeds are calorie dense and have a very low glycemic index which make them a perfect food for weight loss!

bubble, thanks for starting this link. I also love sunflower seeds and would never have thought about them as a snack for weight loss.

I also happen to love sunflower seeds! Smile For weight loss, I would advise to try to find them unsalted. This can be hard to do since most places insist on selling the salted version, but salt contributes to weight gain.

I used to eat sun flower seeds as a low calorie snack. They are kind of bland but they do have value as far as keeping weight down

I like sunflower seeds too! Other than its a healthy food, its very challenging to eat especially with the husks on Smile do you also like them with the husks or you prefer the ready to eat kernels only?
