--220.127.116.11 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)
QUESTION FOR AUTHORS: what is the density of bulk sunflower seeds, shelled and unshelled?
Someone should mention their prominence among baseball players now that dip has been outlawed 18.104.22.168 16:39, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
i heard in the "Herald Sun" in Australia, eating sunflower seeds may prevent the prostate cancer from spreading to the bone due to the fibres in the seed. shall i add it on? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:11, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
Table full of "&" in text browsers
Do you people have any idea of how terrible that table looks for some people?

The calorie-content of Sunflower seeds
"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
Nutritional information serving size
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)
- "100g of sunflower kernels is a ton" - hilarious. You might mention that not only do they contain a lot of Vitamin E, but they are actually one of the richest known sources of this nutrient in the human diet.
- Serving sizes for nutrient contents in foods described on Wikipedia are listed as 100 g servings to allow comparisons from food to food in the same consumed amount -- it's standard science to relate content to a 100 g sample. Here's one link where you can use the pick list to choose a smaller amount, such as one ounce (28 g) to display the DV (47%) for vitamin E which is the highest-content nutrient in sunflower seeds. Here's another link where you can scan the USDA nutrient data on a variety of foods containing vitamin E. The article section and table on nutrition do show the substantial amount of vitamin E, and you are right: according to the USDA database, sunflower seeds appear to be densest food for vitamin E content. Personally, I don't think it adds much to declare sunflower seeds "the richest known source of this nutrient in the human diet." --Zefr (talk) 19:33, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Image in Uses section
- Ah, okay. I get it. It's a magic eye thing. Shouldn't there be a header saying so? Visitors will not know. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
There are a few things I'd like to change about the stereo image template, like omitting the "right" "left" options and simply showing the right image, then the parallel and cross options, also an option to specify whether the original is normal or backwards. I think a header isn't really needed, if you know how to view the pairs you should be able to figure it out, if not then it is basically just another image.
