Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Sunflower seeds

Mon Jan 18, 2010 7:36 pm

Hello,

I'm currently translating an American book into French. I regularly use Convert-me for converting all the ingredients of the book, but I can't find sunflower seeds. Could someone tell me how much 1 cup of hulled sunflower seeds weighs?

Thank you!

Go to http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/, type in "sunflower" and submit. You'll get a number of choices . . . hulls on or off, raw, dry roasted, oil roasted, salted and unsalted. I didn't realize there were that many types of prepared sunflower seeds.

For example: sunflower seed kernels, dry roasted, with salt added weighs 128 grams/cup. It also lists the nutritional values if you need them.

You may want to bookmark the site if you do this frequently. Although the database is rather archaic, it's an excellent reference.
