Organic Activated Sunflower Seeds

About

Raw organic sunflower seeds have been soaked in water until they begin to sprout, then they are dehydrated at low temperatures (below 45°C) until they are about 10% lighter, super crunchy and activated. This process of activating allows the full release of nutrients from each seed and enhances their fresh and sweet taste, as well as making them extra crunchy. Activated sunflower seeds are digestible and moreish as a snack food, and useful as a raw baking ingredient or crunchy salad/buddha bowl topper. They are packed full of nutrients including protein, magnesium and vitamin E. Furthermore, activated sunflower seeds have a high content of selenium, which is particularly important in New Zealand where our soils are low in this key nutrient.

Uses

There is such a huge range of ways to use activated sunflower seeds. Snack on them on their own or mixed with other nuts, seeds and dried fruits for a deliciously crunchy scroggin. Mix them through homemade granola, muesli or porridge recipes for a great start to your day. Add them to recipes for super seed crackers, raw bread, muffins, energy balls and bars or any other sweet and savoury creations. Activated sunflower seeds can also be lightly toasted to add additional flavour as a crunchy salad or hot dish topper.  If you wish to make your own superfood mix, ground sunflower seeds can be combined with ground almonds and linseeds to produce fresh LSA. Ground sunflower seeds can also be added to homemade falafel or veggie burger patties, or used to crumb fish, meat or eggplants for a tasty, contrasting crunch.
