Sunflower kernel is a popular snack and a versatile food ingredient. Sunflower kernels add a unique mild taste and a crunch to baked goods. They can be substituted for any nut in a formulation - often at a price advantage. In fact, their small size and texture make sunflower kernels especially well-suited for additional to baked goods. Products containing sunflower kernels are likely to be thought of as healthy products with desirable eating characteristics. Sunflower kernels are, thus, quite well-suited for addition to a variety of bakery products.
Seeds, kernel, what is the difference?
The answer, there isn't a difference. Here is how the NSA refers to sunflower seeds/kernel:
- In-shell means the seed is left intact with the "meat" of the seed still in the shell. It is normally roasted and seasoned. It is eaten as a snack by cracking the shell with one's teeth, discarding the hull and eating the delicious morsel within. 'Chew and spit' is a great American pastime, especially at baseball games and other outdoor events.
- Kernel means the processor has mechanically removed the hull. The resulting kernel is now in a convenient form to be sold raw or roasted for snacking or as an ingredient.
