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