Bulk Sunflower Kernels Bakery Grade
Ukraine, Russia, and Argentina
Dairy products, nutritional bars and energy bites, bread and pastry fillings
Production & Sourcing
Bakery Grade Sunflower Kernels are derived from mature sunflower heads. After the sunflowers are harvested, the heads are dried to remove excess moisture. Once dried, the heads are threshed to separate the seeds from the rest of the plant. The seeds are then cleaned to remove any remaining plant debris and impurities.
Finally, the cleaned and processed sunflower kernels are graded to meet the quality standards required for bakery use. This ensures that they are uniform in size, flavor, and texture, making them suitable for incorporation into a wide range of baked goods.
