So, what is graînes de tournesol?

"Graînes de tournesol" is the French term for sunflower seeds, which are edible seeds harvested from sunflowers. They are small, flat, and oval-shaped, with a brown or black outer shell that encases the white or yellow kernel inside. Sunflower seeds are rich in healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making them a nutritious addition to a balanced diet. They are commonly enjoyed roasted or raw as a snack, added to salads, granola bars, trail mix, or used as a topping for bread, pastries, or other baked goods. Sunflower seeds are also used in the production of sunflower oil and as feed for birds and other animals.
