Sunflower Seed Flour
The Grapoila Sunflower Seed Flour has won the two-star award at the Great Taste in 2020 (The Great Taste Award is the most famous food tasting contest in the world based on blind testing).
Sunflower is one of the best-known crops in Hungary, its seed and the oil made from it are known and consumed by almost everyone. However, flour of the sunflower seed is not as well known, even though it contains valuable minerals and fiber and can be consumed in a variety of ways. Sunflower seed flour is made from hulled sunflower seeds during the production of cold pressed oil. As a result, it has a lower fat content than sunflower seeds, but contains its valuable minerals. Because its carbohydrate content is extremely low and the actual sugars are only negligible, it is great to use it in your diet. It has an exceptionally high protein and dietary fiber content and contains significant amounts of magnesium, zinc, selenium, manganese, copper and iron. Thus, by consuming sunflower seed, we can provide our body with a significant amount of valuable nutrients.
Thanks to its soft taste, it can be used in many ways in the kitchen, whether for making sweet or savory food. With sunflower flour we can thicken cream soups, dips, sauces and vegetables. We can bake and cook with it in the same way as with wheat flour, we can even mix the two. Perfect ingredient for breads and pizzas, crackers, scones, cakes. (When frying with it, we advise to add a little ascorbic acid or grape seed flour to it so that the otherwise completely harmless green color of the dough due to heat can be prevented). You can also mix it into yogurt, cereal, smoothie or shake, and it will be an excellent morning "protein cocktail."
It can be also consumed by those following a gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, or Paleolithic diet.
