I recent became addicted to sunflower seeds eating them at a bag a day and almost constantly throughout the day for the past two weeks. I recently just broke out a little bit and the redness is more noticeable. I am now stopping. anyone know why they break me out?

What kind of sunflower seeds were these? Were they flavored? Roasted? In or out of the shell? Do you know if they were cooked in a type of oil?

Raw seeds are the best. You probably broke out due to some flavoring or additive on your seeds if they weren't raw. Also, they're high in fat so they should be consumed in moderation.

I agree with Steve. If they are out of a bag, they are likely processed in some way and contain additives and salt. Raw seeds are quite good.
