Dear clients, the COVID19 epidemic has taken a hard toll (physically and mentally) on myself and on our employees. Online sales have skyrocketted and we have processed more than 10 times the orders we normally ship out since March. We have decided to take a much deserved break. We will resume operations on November 30th. We will still be taking orders and will respond to all emails but all orders will ship out on November 30th. We look forward to be back from our much deserved rest in full force.

Chers clients, l'épidémie de COVID19 a fait des ravages (physiquement et mentalement) sur moi-même et sur nos employés. Les ventes en ligne ont explosé et nous avons traité plus de 10 fois de commandes que nous expédions normalement depuis mars. Nous avons décidé de faire une pause bien méritée. Nous reprendrons les opérations le 30 novembre. Nous prendrons toujours les commandes et répondrons à tous les courriels, mais toutes les commandes seront expédiées le 30 novembre. Nous avons hâte de revenir de notre repos bien mérité en force.

Our organic hulled sunflower seeds are popular in trail mix, multi-grain bread and nutrition bars, as well as for snacking straight from the bag. They’re rich in healthy fats, beneficial plant compounds and several vitamins and minerals. These nutrients may play a role in reducing your risk of common health problems, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Sunflower seeds are especially high in vitamin E and selenium. These function as antioxidants to protect your body’s cells against free radical damage, which plays a role in several chronic diseases.

When sunflower seeds are sprouted, their plant compounds increase. Sprouting also reduces factors that can interfere with mineral absorption.

 

What is the difference between our "Confectionary" grade sunflower seeds and "Bakery" grade sunflower seeds?

  • "Confectionery" sunflower seeds are derived from low-oil type of sunflower seeds and are easily recognizable for the greater size and striped whitish black color of the shell. The shape of confectionery grade kernels is flatter, thinner and longer than typical bakery grade type. Their taste is mild and color change after heat treatment is light brown.
  • "Bakery" sunflower seeds as you may have guessed are smaller and more oily. They are typically used exclusively for cooking. We carry exclusively "Confectionary" grade as it is the highest grade and can be used both for cooking and snaking.
  • Be wary of cheap organic sunflower seeds. They is a lot of different grades of sunflower seeds and some are not fit for human consumption.
