Sunflower Seed (Confectionery)

Sunflower Seed (Confectionery)

The husks of confectionery sunflower seeds are striped, and the seeds are called striped sunflower seeds or "stripers." Due to their lower oil content, the crops are primarily used for food.

Confectionery sunflower seed is standardized under the U.S. Standards for Sunflower Seed.
