Organic European Sunflower Seeds by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in the EU. Packed in the UK.

Sunflowers originated in the Americas, on land that's now Mexico and the Southern United States, and they've been farmed for at least 4,000 years. Native Americans grew them further north, and in the 16th century, they were brought to Europe by explorers. Each sunflower head produces 800-2,000 seeds, depending on its size – a boon for snackers of these super-moreish seeds.

Sunflower seeds are high in protein and rich in antioxidants, as well as healthy fats such as omega-3 and omega-6. They're also a good source of vitamins B1 and B6, and iron and manganese.

Our European sunflower seeds are a superb snack right out of the bag, but they're also a terrific addition to a wide range of dishes. We like to use them in salads, baking mixes for muffins and breads, soups, garnishes, risotto (sunflower seeds can stand in for rice here, and they can also substitute pine nuts in classic basil pesto) and granola. Or how about grinding them up to make nutburger patties and falafel, or a delicious crusting for roasted meat, fish and vegetable dishes?
