Sunflower seeds are collected from the common sunflower -Helianthus annuus. which is an annual plant of the Astaraceae family. They are rich in vitamins, iron and magnesium. They are also known for their anti-cancer properties. The flower is actually an inflorescence which is formed by a set of flowers assembled according to a defined scheme. Its colour is yellow on the outside and usually black-grey on the inside. Each inflorescence may contain even more than 1000 fruits which are arranged in concentric hyperbolic spirals. The outer casing of fruit called pericarp is hard and indigestible but it contains an almond of great industrial interest which is improperly called seed.
