Food ingredients from sunflowers
Developing the potential of sunflower seeds for the production of functional food ingredients
Dr. Isabel Muranyi
Sunflowers are grown primarily to produce vegetable oil. What remains after producing sunflower oil is a press cake which, despite its high nutritional value, is generally used only as animal feed. An innovative development process as part of the “SmartProSun” project has aimed to increase the value of such press cakes.
