The sunflower seed is the fruit of the sunflower (Helianthus annuus), there are three types of commonly used sunflower seeds: linoleic (most common), high oleic, and NuSun developed for sunflower oil. The sunflower seed is distributed all over the world, the oil sunflower seed is mainly distributed in Russia, Turkey, Argentina, and other countries, and the edible sunflower seed is mainly distributed in northern of China such as Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang and Gansu etc.
In a 100-gram serving, dried whole sunflower seeds provide 584 calories and are composed of 5% water, 20% carbohydrates, 51% total fat and 21% protein (table). The seeds are a rich source (20% or higher of the Daily Value, DV) of protein (42% DV), dietary fiber (36% DV), many B vitamins (23–129% DV) and vitamin E (234% DV). The seeds also contain high levels of dietary minerals, including magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc (40–94% DV). Half of a 100-gram serving is fat, mainly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, principally linoleic acid. Additionally, the seeds contain phytosterols which may contribute to lower levels of blood cholesterol.
Sunflower protein is a complete protein because it provides all of the essential amino acids. Its most noteworthy feature is its high concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs Valine, Leucine and Isoleucine), which are well known for their ability to promote muscle growth and strength. Sunflower protein isn't just for bodybuilders and athletes, seniors use BCAAs, together with exercise, to help counter the muscular decline of aging. An additional benefit of BCAAs is the support of nitric oxide production, which nutritionally supports vascular function, brain function, and healthy reproductive organ function.
The quality of the starting material is an essential prerequisite,since it may affect all the subsequent phases. Hence GMPs are applied already from these early steps to guarantee the characteristics of the final product. At this stage,there are a number of measures we employ:
√ supplier inspection and qualification
√ area selection
√ control of:
– harvesting period and harvesting method
– drying conditions
√ botanical identification of the sunflower seed
√ quarantine of the biomass under monitored conditions
√ microbiological analysis
√ chemical analysis
√ control of contaminants, including:
– heavy metals
Only after all of these controls will the raw material be released for further processing or rejected due to non conformance with our strict requirements.
