Closed Giveaway: Somersault Snack Co.


About Somersault Snack Co.
Our quest to bake the perfect snack led us to the miraculous sunflower. Just one serving of these tiny seeds have:
~ 4x more antioxidants than blueberries...
~ More fiber than an apple...
AND 50% more protein than almonds!


We couldn't resist. Somersaults have a healthy bunch of sunflower and sesame seeds in every nugget. In fact, Somersaults are a good source of fiber, vitamin E and offer you the same protein as almonds, but with fewer calories and less fat


Sunflower seeds, the #1 ingredient in Somersaults, are a nutritionally dense food, power packed with antioxidants, protein, vitamin E, minerals and healthy fats.
 
Nutrition:
Whole Foods Market's ANDI score, or Aggregate Nutrient Density Index, rates sunflower seeds as #1 in the category of nuts and seeds with a score of 78! ANDI is a scale measuring the amount of nutrients a certain food is packing per calorie. That means our sunflower seed packed snacks offers one of the best nutritional bangs for your calorie buck.


Blood Pressure:
A nutritionally dense whole food, sunflower seeds are packed with four times more antioxidants than blueberries, walnuts, and peanuts, boosting the immune system and lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol.


Cell Production:
Sunflower seeds offer 17% of the recommended daily allowance of folate in a 1 oz. serving. This essential nutrient is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells and is especially important during pregnancy.


Heart Health:
Approximately 90 percent of the fat in sunflower seeds is polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, the healthiest types of fat for the heart. The fat comes from two ingredients: sunflower seeds (fats) and expeller pressed high oleic sunflower oil (monounsaturated fat). Sunflower seeds are also naturally free of harmful trans-fats which raise "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and lower "good" cholesterol (HDL).


Nerves & Muscles:
Sunflower seeds have as much potassium as almonds, offering about 200mg of potassium per 1 oz. serving, playing an important role in decreasing blood pressure and establishing proper nerve function and muscle control.


Immunity:
Sunflower seeds are the best whole-food source of vitamin E, a nutrient that may slow the effects of aging, boosts the immune system and prevents cardiovascular disease.

Not only are these snack super healthy as you can see from the above information they are really yummy! I was surprisingly impressed with the taste because to be honest I couldn't see how they could incorporate sunflower seeds into snacks. Each type was very tasty with a nice hint of different flavors.

I was being super sneaky & didn't tell the kids that there were sunflower seeds in the snacks. It took a second but they finally asked! It also took Tim a second to figure it out, but the seeds actually give it a nice texture. We all actually really like the snacks with each of us having a favorite.

Since Tim has high cholesterol this is going to be a daily snack for him from now on. He also has high blood pressure so hopefully these snacks can help reduce each. Plus what a great snack for the kids so they get a snack that is actually very healthy what an awesome idea.


Somersault offers 4 different varieties of snacks as pictured below along with a product description from their website!


Pacific Sea Salt
When we began our quest to make scrumptious, healthy snacks out of seeds, we developed our original flavor, Pacific Sea Salt. The touch of sea salt on these crunchy nuggets is sourced right here in our own backyard, the San Francisco Bay, and highlights the nutty taste of sunflower and sesame seeds. Pacific Sea Salt is sure to twirl your taste buds.
