--64.215.225.205 00:16, 9 March 2007 (UTC)Is the whole bit about the shells causing digestive problems an urban legend, or is it true? What is the status of the shells of these things? BPeppers1168 03:35, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

From Personal experience as a small child I can say that the only problem they cause is the fact they don't digest and thus become painful during defecation. -- Random person

Someone should move the chart of seed production by country farther to the right of the text, it is currently to close and may confuse the reader. ~KittyKat1987~ 10:55, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

The calorie-content of Sunflower seeds[edit]

"They are also low calorie food." (last sentence under "health benefits"). Sunflower seeds contain 570 kcal per 100 gram. For comparison pure sugar contains 390 kcal per 100gram, and broccoli 30 kcal per 100gram. This statement about the calorie-content should be omitted, although one can more easily consume 100 grams of coca-cola (about 50 calories) than 100 grams of sunflower seeds. /Björn Ahlman


Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, so I changed it. Thanks for the message though. Masparasol (talk) 01:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Nutritional information serving size[edit]

The recommended serving size of sunflower seed kernels is 32g, why is information given for a 100g serving? 100g of sunflower kernels is a ton... measure out that much and tell me that is a single serving. Debollweevil (talk) 04:14, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
