   Introduction

Sunflower popularly known as "Surajmukhi", is a familiar plant in India. The plant was traditionally grown for its ornamental value. However, presently sunflower is mainly grown for its oil. The oil is used for culinary purposes, in the preparation of vanaspati and in the manufacture of soaps and cosmetics. The oil of sunflower is light yellow in color and possesses good odor which can be used for a variety of cooking purposes like any other edible oil.


  Description

 

Sunflower seeds are the gift of the beautiful sunflower, a plant with rays of petals emanating from its bright yellow, seed-studded center. The sunflower's Latin scientific name, Helianthus annuus, reflects its solar appearance since Helios is the Greek word for sun, and Anthos is the Greek word for flower. The sunflower produces grayish-green or black seeds encased in tear-dropped shaped gray or black shells that oftentimes feature black and white stripes. Since these seeds have very high oil content, they are one of the main sources used to produce polyunsaturated oil. Shelled sunflower seeds have a mild nutty taste and firm, but tender texture. Their taste is oftentimes compared with the Jerusalem artichoke (not to be confused with the bulb artichoke), another member of the Helianthus family.
