Grown & Harvested in the Midwest

To make SunButter®, you have to start with the finest seeds available. We source our seeds locally in the US from North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Why the American Midwest? Because peanuts aren’t grown here , eliminating the risk of cross contamination!

Processed in a Nut Free Facility!

After harvest, our sunflower crop is brought to Fargo, North Dakota where our kernel are hulled and roasted to give it that magical flavor. The entire process, from receiving sunflower kernel to packaging our delicious SunButter®, all occurs under one roof. Our facilities are dedicated to only processing sunflower seeds, meaning that every step is free from peanuts, tree nuts, and other top 8 food allergens.

This means absolutely NO...

Peanuts

Tree Nuts

Soy

Milk

Eggs

Wheat

Fish

Shellfish

Made With Simple Ingredients

Our SunButter® varieties range from simply roasted sunflower kernel ground into our spread to varying levels of tastes & textures. Depending on the variety, we never use more than 4 simple ingredients: sunflower kernel, cane sugar, salt, and non-GMO emulsifier (just to get that deliciously creamy consistency!).

Plant-Based Proteins Have More Benefits than You Think!

You’ll love what’s in SunButte (and what’s not)! SunButter® packs a delicious, protein-packed punch and is free of the top 8 food allergens!

Why are Sunflowers More Sustainable than Almonds?

Sunflower plants are extremely resilient due to their system of deep roots. This means sunflowers require little to no irrigation to thrive. Other crops, such as almonds, require copious amounts of fresh water to grow.

The Perfect Source of Healthy Fats & Oils

A lot of people get freaked out when the oils and solids in SunButter® separate. It doesn’t mean your SunButter® has gone bad–all that oil is actually a good thing! The separation of sunflower seed solids from oils (a great source of healthy fats) is a natural process. Just stir before you start dipping, dolloping, or spreading.

Make Any Baking Recipe Nut-Free!

SunButter® is a versatile (and more nutritious) ingredient that can be used in place of any nut butter to make inclusive, nut-free desserts and treats.
