Information from our supplier:

Are these Sunflower Seeds raw or slightly toasted?

We are not always able to source Australian Organic Sunflower Seeds. When we can they are not heat treated. However, most organic sunflower seeds are imported as the demand for these in Australia is much more than is grown here.

Australian Quarantine (AQIS) require imported sunflower kernels be treated to devitalise the seed. Sunflower plants germinated from imported viable sunflower kernels have been assessed as posing a significant risk of leading to the transfer (via insects from plant to plant) of the plant disease - sunflower downy mildew - by AQIS.  If we eliminate the ability of the sunflower kernel to germinate and grow into a plant, this risk is eliminated.

There are 2 acceptable means of devitalizing sunflower seeds in accordance with AQIS standards;

Option 1. Moist heat treatment
Option 2. Fumigation with methyl bromide

Option 2 would never be acceptable for organic foods which is why they are treated via moist heat treatment. They do taste ever so slightly toasted - and delicious, super popular.
