Sprouts: Sunflower (Helianthus annuus)

Sunflower sprouts are baby sunflowers. While many of us do know that sunflower seeds are nutritious, few people realize that they are almost 25% protein, contain vitamins A, D, E, and B complex, incredible amounts of potassium, and are high in calcium, magnesium, and iron. And since germination activates a plant’s stored energy, the sprouts have fewer calories, yet more of all these vitamins and minerals than do the dry seeds! http://www.motherearthnews.com/Organic-Gardening/1979-11-01/Sunflower-Sprouts.aspx – ixzz1VM3oxksB
