The days of just peanut butter are no longer. There are many different nut butters available that supply us with the same or better nutritional valve. One of these is sunflower seed butter.
Since the butter is derived from a seed, it is a terrific option for anyone with a nut or peanut allergy. Sunflower seed has many benefits for your body. It is very high in protein, great for a pre and post-gym
snack and has about 3 grams of protein, especially when paired with a carbohydrate.
This butter is loaded with Vitamin E which supplies our body with antioxidants, balances our cholesterol, and reduces free radical damage in our cells. It helps our immune system to stay healthy. Sunflower
butter supplies 24% of our daily needs in just 1 tablespoon.
One of the most important minerals, magnesium is found in high percentages in sunflower seed butter.
Magnesium deficiency causes low energy levels, sleep issues, helps to keep you going to the bathroom
and relieves muscle spasms.
Lastly, sunflower seed butter is highly unprocessed and full of healthy fats. Healthy fats provide the tools
to carry vitamins through the body, absorb nutrients, and improve skin health.
Sunflower seed butter is not processed like peanut butter. In the processing procedure for peanut
butter, sugars and hydrogenated oils are often added. With sunflower butter, you can also purchase
your own seeds and use a food processor to make your own.
So if you are looking for an alternative to nut butters, sunflower seed butter is a great choice. It
provides you with some high nutritional valve and can be used like peanut butter in recipes, on toast as
a spread or any way that you use peanut butter.
