Production & Sourcing
Confectionery Grade Sunflower Kernels are carefully processed to meet the specific requirements of confectionery production. The process begins with the harvest of mature sunflowers. The sunflower heads are then dried to remove excess moisture.
Once dried, the seeds are extracted from the heads and meticulously cleaned to remove any remaining plant debris. These cleaned kernels are then graded for size, color, and quality to ensure they meet the standards set for confectionery use.
