The sunflower seeds added to our granolas not only create texture but pack a nutritional punch of vitamin E and magnesium. Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant and has a significant anti-inflammatory effect, and magnesium is necessary for healthy bones and energy production. Sunflower seeds are also a great source of protein, they make the perfect snack!

We use non-GMO sunflower oil to give our granolas a longer shelf life, than other oils would allow. The great thing about sunflower oil is that it has a neutral taste so it allows the flavours of the other ingredients (like the quinoa and seeds) to come through.

Check out the National Sunflower Association‘s website and make sure to eat your seeds!
