The cultivated sunflower is one of 67 species of the genus Helianthus – literally, sun flower – all native to the Americas. It has been cultivated for thousands of years, originally in Mexico and Peru. Sunflower seeds make a tasty and nutritious snack with a bonus of a significant dose of vitamin E, the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant. Sunflower oil, derived from sunflower kernels, is another valuable product from Helianthus.
