Sunflower kernel
Sunflower kernel, flavorful and nutritious, is a cost-efficient way to add taste, texture and eye appeal to a variety of baked goods and snack food selections. For the food manufacturer, kernels require no prep, such as chopping, are shelf-stable, and are not a major allergen. For the consumer, they are an important source of protein, fiber, lipids, minerals and vitamins. With its subtle nutty flavor, the crisp, crunchy sunflower kernel brings distinction to any formulation.

Millet, higher in protein than rice, corn or oats, is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins and minerals, particularly iron. The nutrition-focused consumer appreciates the phytochemicals in millet that may lower cholesterol and reduce cancer risk. Food companies appreciate millet’s diversity as an ingredient in cereals, breads, soups and stuffing mixes.  With a mild nut-like flavor, it can be puffed for breakfast cereal.
