Sunflower Seeds

Recommended Posts

Not had sunflower seeds in the last year since they started giving me issues over a year ago. I tried them again this morning, I made a cheese sauce with them blending them with water, nutritional yeast, hint of garlic and onion powered, apple cider vinegar. then used my standard thickening regime for cheese sauces of konjac and psyllium husk. IT TASTED wonderful the flavor of the seeds gave it a new take on a cheese sauce different but I like it. Then about 20mins later I am in the bathroom, first I threw up all the cheese sauce which floated.....yeah that why seems I am intolerant and can not break them down just like a meat, cellulose fiber, and a few other foods that float and do not break down in my stomach. Wondering why I have no issues with other seeds or nuts -_- and sunflower seeds are supposed to be hypoallergenic....but then again they are really oily and oily fatty meats do this exact same thing.....ugg sometimes I hate my body and wish it was normal lol. >.> Side note who wants 4 cups of sun cheese lol.

Hi, Ennis.  Sorry the sunflower seeds made you sick.  I can't tolerate them either.  I think you're right that they may be too oily for some of us, though I wonder about the combination with psyllium husks.... the psyllium husks would want to absorb water and the sunflower seeds would want to repel water since they are oily.... just wondering if that combination had something to do with your bad experience.  

Do you have a recommendation for a calcium supplement?  I don't do dairy.  I agree with your views.   Dairy is just gross.  It does horrible things to my body and brain.  I thought maybe you would have the scoop on a good calcium supplement.  

I hope you feel better!

Yeah I found another product with defatted sunflower seed protein and no issues, Found sunflower oil in the grocery store.....sicker then a dog and vomiting and I only use a bit to stir fry with. I am 100% sure it has something to do with the oil/fats in it. But at least I was able to find some pure forms to test with. Does seem to float separate from my stomach acid being thrown up first and  I feel much better after that floating oily stuff is in the toilet  the urge to pukes goes away after just the first bout of that.

Calcium I get a ton of it from the nut milks I drink, they are fortified with more calcium then milk, I use them to make nut cheeses, non dairy ice cream, etc. Probably drink a few cups a day of the stuff. My preferred brand is a local organic one, oddly the non organic from the same company causes issues...I think it might have to do with it using xantham gum.

I use extra virgin olive oil.  It's got lots of omega 3 fatty acids.  Sunflower seed oil has more omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids.  The brain likes omega 3's and the body can make omega 6 and 9 out of omega 3 like snapping legos together.  

I tried almond milk a while back and it didn't agree with me.  It was during one of those "find the funky food" searches when I had symptoms and didn't know the source of the problem. It might be time to try it again.  I worry about getting enough calcium since I don't do dairy.

I normally stir fry with almond, avocado, or coconut oil (found a wonderful dairy free butter flavored one that is godly to cook with from nutiva), most nut milks do have added calcium, I sometimes make a jam with calcium water, universal pectic, sugar free sweetener (swirve) and a extract....OHH yeah Natural Vitality that magnesium company makes a version with calcium in it.

I am allergic to olives...like in the standard way amusingly, I just get sniffles, running nose, red eyes and coughing, now if I eat a decent amount of it like at tsp it can make me throw up. I generally just avoid them when I can. >.> made me decent at making my own sauces lol.

Allergic to olives?!? Oh, that's too bad.  I can't eat olives because they add Sulfites in the brining process, but the oil is okay.  

I'm leary of anything with processed coconut meat because sulfites are added to keep it white. So I am highly suspicious of coconut oil and coconut milk, too.  

Thanks for the tip on Natural Vitality. I'll check into it. ?
