Ya know I love David's Sunflower seeds since they keep my mouth busy (sometimes I get kinda fidgety) and are high in protein and fat but low in carbs. One thing I always thought was that they were really high in sodium and just now I'm looking at the nutrition facts for the different flavors of sunflower seeds and none of them really seem to have that much sodium in them. I was worried about the sodium thing because I'm under the impression that high sodium diets can increase risk of hypertension (wouldn't be a factor until down the road though).
Do you guys know if they use something else as a substitute or anything? Because I always assumed sunflower seeds were very high in salt and thus high in sodium. Here's a link to the nutrition facts (ranch is my favorite):
What's more is that if you eat them as I do (not whole but cracking and taking out the seed inside) then you aren't really going to be able to go through more than 5.25oz bag of them. Doing the calculations, that really isn't that much sodium at all... 225mg of sodium in bag of Ranch seeds = 10% of Daily Value, and for regular ~342mg of sodium = ~15% of Daily Value.
Am I missing something here?
