What is it?
But it’s not just merely edible, it’s nutrient-dense, too. The three types of sunflower seeds—linoleic, high oleic and NuSun—all boast of having high levels of the good fats (monounsaturated, saturated and polyunsaturated).
Sunflowers grow wild in North America and people during the Paleo-Indian times picked the seeds precisely for its fat-content. It was the people from the southwest part of North America, or what is now Mexico, who started farming sunflowers for its seeds back in 3000-2000BC. They developed ways to make the seeds bigger and make the flowers produce prolifically.
However, it was the American Indians who domesticated wild sunflowers (it was one of the first plants to be domesticated in the US), turning it into a single-headed plant and developing seed color varieties—black, red, black/white-striped and white. They utilised it in many ways—they pounded it to make flour, squeezed it for its oil or cracked and eat it as snack.
