Organic sunflower seeds are highly nutritious and can be enjoyed raw or lightly toasted. They make a great snack and can be sprinkled into salads, stir-fries, muesli or on breakfast cereal. They are also a delightful addition to baking, especially cakes, muffins, breads and biscuits. You can also make sunflower butter, a tasty nutritious spread.

We are not always able to source Australian Organic Sunflower Seeds. When we have these they are NOT heat treated, however, most organic sunflower seeds are imported as the demand for these in Australia is much more than is grown here. 

More often than not we also range Australia Sunflower Seeds, however these are not organic, but are not heat treated. Australian Quarantine require imported sunflower kernels be treated to devitalize the seed. Sunflower plants germinated from imported viable sunflower kernels have been assessed as posing a significant risk of leading to the transfer (via insects from plant to plant) of the plant disease “sunflower downy mildew” by AQIS. If we eliminate the ability of the sunflower kernel to germinate and grow into a plant, this risk is eliminated. There are 2 acceptable means of devitalizing sunflower seeds in accordance with AQIS standards; Option 1. Moist heat treatment Option 2. Fumigation with methyl bromide Option 2 would never be acceptable for organic foods which is why they are treated via moist heat treatment. They do taste ever so slightly toasted.
