Naturally Balanced Macros—Ideal for Any Healthy Diet
Progressive health practitioners have long recognized the impact of diet on health and recommend a macronutrient balance that is high in healthy fat and protein and lower in carbs (where the carbs are complex, not empty).
Sunflower seeds are one of Mother Nature’s most nutrient-rich whole foods! We source a seed blend for our SunFlour that has the ideal macronutrient balance and it also naturally matches the requirements of a Keto diet.
Protein —9 grams of protein per serving/20% Daily Value to support muscle development, healthy metabolism and energy. Because protein takes 25% more energy to digest than carbohydrates or fat, you burn more calories just by adding more protein to your diet. The protein in SunFlour is all-natural, easier to digest and more bioavailable than refined protein isolates. And, SunFlour has more protein than any nuts, grains or other seeds!
Fiber — 4 grams of fiber per serving/15% Daily Value to help you feel full longer, improving weight management and digestive health. Fiber also helps support a healthy glucose level and sweeps away bad cholesterol and toxins from your body. You’ll get more fiber than an apple or bowl of bran flakes. It works in synergy with protein for maintaining healthy weight.
Only 3 Net Carbs! — Because of the combination of low carbs and high fiber, there are only 3 net carbs per serving, making SunFlour perfect for a keto diet. We have customers tell us that eating SunFlour products does not knock them out of ketosis or raise their blood sugar if they’re on a diabetic diet.
Ideal Fat Profile — Good fats can actually help you lose weight, carry out bad cholesterol and support brain elasticity. 90% of the fat in sunflower seeds is the healthiest type of plant-based fat (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated) that delivers fat soluble Vitamin E and helps you feel full longer. Most progressive health practitioners recommend at least 1 serving of seeds or nuts daily, to increase these healthy fats. The healthiest keto diets are high in monounsaturated fats vs saturated fats.
In short, SunFlour is a perfectly balanced Superfood!
